Hughes Airfield Camp Site – Acacia Hills

If you thrive on getting ‘back to basics’ and revelling in the call of the wild, then Hughes Airfield Camp Site may be the location for you. Set in an atmospheric disused WWII airfield, and right in the heart of the barren bush land, it makes for a dramatic and scenic spot, whilst Darwin remains only a short drive away, for more urban explorations.
