Description

Ooraminna means "hot tucker" which in turn for Non -Australians means "hot food". Many a hot meal has been served at Ooraminna with the thousands of people that have attended functions at the famous movie set from Drover's Boy. The set has since been used in many a film and commercial and more regularly as the dining venue of Ooraminna.

Entertainment and dining experiences are supported at Ooraminna by gorgeous accommodations and a campground.

A family owned private 600 acres with the desert backdrop of Alice Springs escarpments, come to Oooraminna to enjoy the tranquillity and charm of the OUTBACK.
