Saddle Creek Rest Northern Territory

Free Camp – Saddle Creek Rest Area – NT

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

As we started to travel East we stopped at some rest areas that are also free camps.

We all need to take a break when heading to our destinations and sometimes the rest stop is the destination for the night.

Saddle Creek was our rest stop on the way to Timber Creek which was where we were heading.

Yayy… We had crossed into the Northern Territory … yippee 😀

You could stop for a break or rest for the night as this camp has a lot going for it.

Toilets are always handy as are the undercover seating areas.

Being close to the border, we were offered fruit and veg from a fellow vanners. They were heading through to WA and didn’t want to take it through the checkpoint.

Leaving there goodies for others to take 🙂 We were happy to except some potatoes and veggies.
