Honestly it is a nice location, amenities were good and clean but I have to say I was disappointed at a couple of things firstly it is extremely dark at night with no lights on paths, roads to guide you safely to amenities.... so make sure you have a torch for this one. Secondly we made the mistake of using...

We wanted a powered tent site which she allocated us one in good range of the facilities on offer. Their camp kitchen is the best.Two electric stove tops for your use, sinks with all detergents etc available, pots and pans...

I booked one of the gorgeous cabins here for a week when I moved to town, as my accommodation wasn't ready. What a beautiful place to stay. The two pools were a very welcome addition in extreme summer heat. The cabins are huge, with an enormous bathroom and great shower. The built-in lounge needed pillows to make it comfortable, and...

Hello, Thank you for the review, and the feedback. Pillows for the lounges is a good idea (they used to have them, once upon a time...). The new office is open!

Nice location and good clean facilities. Helpful staff and close to Bourke. Would be good if they had family cabins with ensuite as they have heaps of fancy couples cabins but no family ones just basic. But for the price it was good for a one night stay and the family cabins were close to the toilets for the kids...

Hello, and thank you for the review. We're always growing and updating our park, so hopefully one day we can have some En Suite cabins with multiple beds. We're glad you were happy with the accommodation, despite this lack. :)

This is a great park located at the Back 'o Bourke. Facilities were clean and had plenty of hot water and excellent shower heads. The camping sites and caravan sites have excellent green grass and the atmosphere is relaxed. Camp kitchen is well supplied and clean. There is a nice stroll down to the Paddle Vessel Jandra on the Darling...

We stayed at this Caravan Park 12 months ago and now we are back for a longer visit. This park is like a touch of paradise in the outback! Bougainvillea and climbing roses...caravan friendly trees and lots of green grass. Great amenities and laundry facilities. Terrific pool and camp kitchen. Highly recommend.

Lovely park, though we didnt stay long. Just overnight. We had a lovely.time here . Tour on the JV Jandra, saw the Crossley Engine start up in town, visited the 3 story wharf and had coffee and Birdy's. Everything was done well. Looked around the heritage buildings too.

Ensuite Delux Log Cabin 22 $139 for one night. Close to the road so there was some truck noise. Microwave, large fridge freezer, no cooktop. Large bathroom. Spacious. OK but In my opinion was not Delux.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A visit to Kidmans Camp is more than just a stay, it is an experience of true outback hospitality in style! Located 6kms north of Bourke on the road to Cunamulla, our property includes 20 cabins, over 100 powered sites, two unpowered camping areas, a large ablutions block, laundry facilities, a camp kitchen with two gas BBQs, swimming pools, and access to the Jandra Paddleboat and river (boat access on other side of river).During the tourist season (~April to October), Poetry on a Plate is hosted in our park. This includes a slow cooked dinner and dessert served around a campfire, while you are being regaled by the Bard of Bourke with his entertaining bush poetry. Also during the tourist season, you can be picked up by the Mateship Country Tours, which takes you on a historical tour of town, as well as around the local fruit and cotton farms, and into the cotton gin. ... more   less
