“Good overnighter for Gunlom Falls”
Reviewed 10 October 2012 via mobile

We stayed here at a caravan site for a couple of nights and used it as a base to visit Gunlom Falls. The road to Gunlom was quite bad and rough for a van so we were glad to leave the van at Goymarr. The location is good for accessing Southern Kakadu.
The park is pretty basic but the facilities clean when we were there. Not much at the park but it serves it's purpose.

We arrived just after 5:30pm on a Saturday and had to seek out the owner/person running the premises. We were told our room was already unlocked and the key was inside (in a tone that implied we should have known this already) and were then shunned away. It also appeared to be quite an effort for them to sell us a meat pack and some softdrink too, in order for us to have a meal for the evening. Considering we were the only people staying there this particular night, I would have thought they could have made more of an effort to make us feel comfortable and welcome.
The room was mostly clean, however there were alot of bugs in the room and the toilet was filthy upon arrival.
Overall a quite unpleasant experience. Being in such a remote location, I would have like to have felt comfortable and welcome, however this was certainly not the case on our visit.

This is a really good value literally on the southern doorstep of Kakadu, and much cheaper than any accommodation inside the park. We’d spent 1 night in Jabiru (which was lovely, but you paid for it) and then our next night here. As the previous reviewer said it’s the closest accommodation to Gunlom Falls, which are so beautiful. We arrived in the afternoon, had a rest and swim, used the BBQ to cook dinner (they provide cutlery and plates if you ask at the roadhouse/reception and sell BBQ meat packs).

The room itself was cosy, all 5 of us were in together, with a triple bunk and double bed in the 1 room. We had a small fridge, TV, sink, kettle, toaster and bathroom. You certainly wouldn’t stay a week, but for an overnight stay was clean and cosy and just a great spot. In the morning we went back into the park, was a 45min drive to Gunlom Falls (incl. 37km on dry corrugated roads, which is accessible with 2WD in the dry season). We joined the 8.30am ranger tour that’s run Monday mornings and climbed to the series of infinity pools and swam at the top – simply stunning. Headed back to Goymarr for lunch and then onto Katherine.

Stayed with wife and two kids 10 & 12 in Sunrise cabin. An oversized screened one room kitchen/bedroom /lounge cabin. Basic but most comfortanle, perfect getaway. The
Secret swiming hole near by was the best way to begin and end the day. Great access to many other natural attractions. I am going again.

Small but comfortable budget motel room had everything we needed except....
the air conditioner sounded like a truck each time it came on in the night.
Other guests complained of the same in their room. A terrible night's sleep was had by all.

Should be good value for money but check the noise problem has been fixed before booking.

thanks for your comments and bringing the noisy air conditioners to our notice, we have had the aircons in all the motel rooms relocated from the walls to the ground which has decreased the noise levels hugely. We hope you will come back and stay with us again, we are confident you will have a peaceful sleep.

The Mary River Road house is a great location, 5 mins drive from the entrance to Kakadu. Facilities are clean and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

The pool is great to relax by after a hard days spinifex walk.

The best part about this place is it is run by the traditional owners who are passionate about their land and are happy to share their stories and local knowledge of this beautiful area.

Spent three days exploring Gunlom Falls, Kooplin Gorge, Ferny Gully and a number of other spots from this Caravan Park. No mozzies like the top parts of Kakadu. Good food (if you like big burgers etc). You need to ask the locals where the best unpromoted spots are.
