We stayed here on our way from Katherine to Winton. We had a lovely drive thru, shady site. All the amenities were clean and nice. The Roadhouse always cops flack about its prices but they were exactly as I expected them to be. You have to remember that you truly are a long way from anywhere! Food and coffee was...

We stayed one night in one of the cabins during a recent trip. It was very clean, and well furnished and suited out needs perfectly. We had a few drinks in the bar and had dinner there and found it first class. It was the most expensive room of our entire trip from Boyne Island through Longreach to Darwin and...

Stopped over here on our way from Darwin to cairns. It was recommended to us by friends and did not disappoint. Room was very clean and well appointed for somewhere so remote. We were told horror stories about fuel prices but it was only $1.60ish per ltr. Meal in the bistro was surprisingly good! Overall a good place to stay.

Barkly homestead is a great comfortable place to stop. The only place in hundreds of kms but with great rooms, clean and comfortable, great food with a good selection and most of the creature comforts you may need when in the middle of nowhere. The newer cabins and clean, well equiped and comfortable.

We had a cabin which was very clean, comfy and spacious. Away from the motel rooms and although not far from the main road was very quiet. You can park right beside your cabin. We had a meal which was very nice. Huge steak, chips and salad. Is also a normal petrol station, tourist bits and pieces available, a bar...

As I've just ridden from Alice Springs on my motor bike and I was looking for a good comfortable place to unwind, have a good shower and a good feed. This place offered all of that with the rooms in perfect condition and very clean and spacious. The bar area was clean and the food was plentiful. Staff were all...
