Caravan Park

Description

A rare insight into the underground world of our miners awaits you at Roxby Downs, deep in the Australian outback. Just over two hours from Port Augusta and 563 kilometres from Adelaide, Roxby Downs is a must-see. Discovery Parks - Roxby Downs (formerly Myall Grove Holiday Park) is a well-appointed caravan park with facilities that will surprise you. You'll be amazed by the jaw-dropping BHP Billiton Olympic Dam, which produces 9 million tonnes of ore annually - we recommend the virtual underground tour. Take a guided sunset walk of the Arid Recovery Reserve to explore dunes, follow animal tracks and spot nocturnal wildlife. While you're there, don't forget the fascinating town of Andamooka - an opal lover's paradise.

Bit pricey for one person per night and no unpowered.

Pretty quite here only a couple of caravans. The park is catering 100% for workers not tourists with only a handful of powered sites. Nice sites with gravel, some with mats. The free washing machines are a very nice bonus. Other than that, not much to do in a town that has many vacant shops as BHP shifts to FIFO rather than local residents. The amount of houses for sale is scary on Real estate.com.

We intended to stay but the lukewarm reception and being expected to pay $36 for an unpowered tent site was a deal breaker. Oh, and they would have to 'turn off the sprinklers so we could camp on the grass down the back' Didn't feel welcome :-(

Great town to stock up in after being in the outback. Good showers, two camp kitchens and small play area for kids. Top parks meant kids were free at time of staying.

What sort of c.p. does not answer the phone at 12.30 on Sunday or 5.30pm on Saturday. Says ' OFFICE HOURS' ???? And says book via web - this web reference here on wiki is not connected!
