Jaw-dropping views of the outback from luxury tents

Property reviewed by Stephanie Mikkelsen on Friday, May 26, 2017

Squeakywindmill isn’t a place you go to stay connected with the outside world. In fact, the only reason you’ll really need your smartphone is to take photos of the sunsets, or to snap a selfie as you cheers with a glass of sparkling on your private deck.

Only two luxury tents make up this get-back-to-nature getaway, so it’s almost like having a slice of the Australian outback all to yourself. Squeakywindmill sits on the fringe of West MacDonnell National Park so great views come as standard with every stay. Both tents come with a queen bed (available to be split into two singles), ensuite and kitchenette. Tents are heated to ward off the outback evening chill during winter, and an air-conditioner will keep you cool and fresh in the heat of the day. The timber slated flooring keeps things rustic and give the impression that you’re roughing it when you’re actually living in total comfort.

The private deck is fantastic. It will become a gathering point to watch the sun rise of a morning, and to marvel at it as it sets and lights the sky ablaze with reds, oranges and pinks. Toast to your good fortune at booking such a unique getaway, and don’t forget to send a photo of you doing so back to your friends and family back home.

Your host at Squeakywindmill, Michelle, is able to arrange a barbecue hamper for your enjoyment. It comes brimming with a delicious selection of meats, fresh salad and locally made bread. It even has dessert.
