Who has visited the iconic Bark Hut Inn in the Northern Territory?
Located on the western edge of Kakadu National Park, it’s a great spot to stop in, especially for families.
It was built by hand in 1963, well before Kakadu National Park was opened to the public in the 1980s. This area was famed for crocodiles, barramundi and buffalo.
Traveller, Michael Lennon, said: “When Maureen and I were travelling through NT in July/August last year we stayed at the Bark Hut Inn on the Arnhem Highway on our way to Kakadu.”
Michael chatted to the foreman, “They claimed is a helicopter landing area with 3 concrete pads. He stated that Dick Smith stopped off for lunch during one of his road trips through the area and when he saw the pads quipped that next time he will fly there in his helicopter.
“The foreman mentioned CAMPS ambassadors had recently visited.”
Yes they did – CAMPS Ambassadors, Amanda and Dan said it was a “fantastic pub style camp. Super friendly staff and a delicious house cider!”
They said there was: “Animals for the kids and amazing parts of station history to look at.”
They rated the pizzas…
visited the emus…
and checked out the grassy, pet friendly caravan park.
In fact, we visited this NT wayfinder as well!
Our trip was ten years ago – and our kids loved it here.
And check out the amenities, too!
It is easy to tell male toilets from female toilets.
