Outback Caravan Park

Campground in Tennant Creek

In a town that often feels parched, it's nice to be in the shade of this grassy caravan park about 1km east of the centre. There's a well-stocked kiosk, a camp kitchen and fuel. You may even be treated to some bush poetry and bush tucker, courtesy of yarn spinner Jimmy Hooker, at 7.30pm ($10).

There's a decent outdoor bar area, but be quick – it closes early.
