Hi welcome to The Crab Shack. This is Glamping at its best!! You have fishing, 4WDing, birdwatching, exploring and relaxing right on your doorstep so you don't have to rough it. Just glamp it at the Crab Shack! And we are only a 12 minute ferry ride into Darwin. We can offer lifts to and from the ferry if required.
We are situated on a secluded 5 acre natural timber block.
My husband and I sleep up at the caravan and big shed while you stay. You will have privacy and the place to yourself. We will try and be here to help you check in as there are some quirky tricks to this place!
It is a very tranquil place with bush chooks, wallabies and an array of other native birds. We have chooks that like to free range in the afternoons if you don't mind and a free ranging lorikeet and his dodgey mates that require food daily.
We are about 200m to the beach and you can hear the ocean from your bed which is situated in amongst the bush.
The sportsground is next door which has a tennis/basketball court, BMX track, playground and oval. We have a football, basketball and 2 tennis racquets and balls to use. The boat ramp and fishing jetty is 4km's away and you can also fish off the beach. We offer parking for a boat and vehicles
The kitchen has fridge, gas burner, coffee percolator, microwave/convection oven, pizza oven, charcoal webber and pretty much everything you'll need for glamping including a washing machine. You can cook some snaggers on the BBQ or bung up a stew in the camp oven.
We will supply some firewood for each night however if you need more we can provide extra for a cost. You are also welcome to bring your own.
We supply one set of linen and a towel each, soap, washing powder, dishwashing liquid, tea, coffee and basic food stuff. There is the main tent with queen bed and bedside drawers, chest of drawers, lamps, fan and powerboard. Another tent with two single beds, bedside drawers and lamp and we have 2 swags and a two man dome tent and a double daybed with mozzie net under the stars so plenty of room if bringing the kids or coming with friends. Kids must be able to swim confidently as our pool is not fenced.
We don't have airconditioning however there is a fan in the main tent and two ceiling fans in the lounge room. At the moment it is nice and cool in the evenings. Mozzies and insects can be a problem sometimes. We always light mozzie coils and the tents have flyscreens. Best to bring plenty of spray tho. Long sleeved light clothing works as well! Bring hats, sunscreen etc.

Interaksjon med Gjester
We are staying not far from you but you will be fairly private. We like a drink and to socialise so if you want to interact with us we are always happy to! We will come feed the chooks and let them around 6pm out to free range in the afternoon and lock them up at night. There is a free range lorikeet which is my mate and we have to feed him too. We would prefer if you didn't interact with him as he can bite. We own a small fluffy friendly dog too who may come and visit!
