Stopped off at The Border Shop on our Arnhemlander Cultural tour. Completely surprised and thrilled to find excellent coffee available. All the very best to the folk running The Border Store.

Good food and drink right at the middle of the park. A very nice surprise with great thai food if you want a full meal. Suggest you check before hand if they are going to be open when you plan to visit :-)

Had a great dinner here. Our guides knew the owners and we received great service. The meals were good though a bit on the expensive side, which you have to expect in somewhere so remote.

Considering the size of the store, it offered a variety of goods which is great helpful to protect the tourist and keep them going for a few days. Mosquito repellents, sustenance and drinks. What else would you need!
