Create an itinerary including Kings Creek Station
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.

  • Stop here for lunch on your way to Kings canyon. Great food at reasonable prices. I highly recommend the camel burger, but my wife had a beef burger and it was great too. Definitely worth the stop.

  • Stopped here for coffee on the way to Kings Canyon and on the return journey and thanks to the Piccolo chick I got a great caffeine hit. Breakfast was great, Lola the dog, a delight and the camels eating breakfast was entertaining! Great stop!
  • Very basic campground facilities. Great customer service, friendly staff. The kitchen area only have cold water. The BBQ surface was rusty and dirty, so didn't use it at all Didn't check out the laundry so not sure how it was. If you need somewhere to stay and cannot book other places, then it is recommended.
