    This is a hidden gem. We loved it. Great shaded picnic stop. There are washrooms, drinking water, $5 camping. The best is the short walk to the creek. You can swim or simply take in the quiet beauty o...  more »

    We ended up camping here after running out of time on our first day of our Red Centre Way roadtrip to Uluru and making a decision to stop here instead of Redbank Gorge. No regrets. The campground was ...  more »

    Had a lovely time. yes water is freezing but added to the experience. we drove to the other campsites but Ellery has a bigger area for caravans & your not on top of each other. Great fire pits. Ticked all the boxes. Highly recommend­čśü

    Nice place but not enough room. No toiletpaper, no water to wash hands. There was a hand sanitizer, but that was empty also. Not so good for the money.

    A well maintained camp site that also serves as a campsite for thru hikers of the Larapinta trail. Gas BBQs and toilets, but no showers. The sunset was gorgeous and the dolomite trail was an easy walk with nice scenery PRO TIP: Make sure you bring correct change for your campsite. $5 and $10 bills are good to have. I think it's $5 per person per night and they have a family rate as well. Check NT park website for exact prices

    Surprisingly cold water, but all good when you need to cool off in the desert with nice surroundings too

    Nice area, beautiful views. The access road was very bumpy, we had a 2WD car. The flies love this place too, take repellant
