Kings Creek Station, Kings Canyon

#7 of 16 in Historic Sites in Northern Territory
Ian and Lyn Conway established Kings Creek Station in 1981. The station lies 30 kilometres from the magnificent Kings Canyon (Watarrka) and is set amongst majestic desert oaks.

Kings Creek Station is a working cattle/camel station that offers visitors a wide range of accommodation from self camping, safari tents, a bush swag camp, and the Dreamtime Escarpment glamping.

Basic supplies, meals and drinks can be bought at the station shop, and our camel burgers are a huge favourite with many visitors.

The station is the largest exporter of wild camels in Australia and sells camels for live export, live domestic sales and meat.

36 documentaries have been filmed at Kings Creek and the station hosted Australian Geographics' fourth expedition. In 2001 the world famous Australian Safari travelled through and stayed at the station. Kings Creek Station has also been featured on 7 Sunrise Weather hosted by Grant Denyer in 2012.
