We offer a variety of accommodation including a self-contained cottage and basic single, double and family units in the accommodation block.  Our small campground provides a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of Broome caravan parks. Amenities include toilets, hot showers, BBQ area, and our “Shadehouse”. The Shadehouse is a fully-equipped bush kitchen/dining shelter with a large gas stove, several refrigerators, and plenty of seating. It also provides excellent views of our birdbaths, which can be enjoyed at any time of day.  Linen is provided, but you will need to bring your own towel. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate pets.
