MATARANKA is a good stopover on any trip up around the Top End. Here are a few details:
- air strip about 10 steps from accommodation - (it's red dirt so ring for condition)
- thermal springs in which to soak those weary bones
- share your bush walks with kangaroos, peacocks, plus whatever else you find
- big open dining and bar area shared with road travellers
