Loved it! Went out East for a day visit & ended up at Ross River. Was keen to visit N'Dhala Gorge but couldn't due to hire car. The friendly manager Shane, got me on a trip with two of his lovely staff. Walked the Gorge & then lunch at the resort. Also great views -5 mins walk up the hill... More

Brilliant hosts, great meals, beautiful location... what more could you want? Plenty to do and see in red centre but make sure you spend time here and exploring the surrounding country. Waterholes, ranges and plenty of birds. Jodi and Shane keep on making improvements to the facilities and will do their best to make you comfortable.

We visited with another family and stayed in the family cabins. The cabins were rustic and somewhat charming. They had a queen bed, a bunk bed, and a single bed, which were comfortable. They came with linens and complementary toiletries. The en suite bathroom had a toilet, sink and a spacious shower with hot water. They also had a table,... More

I arrived solo as part of a large group during the Big Sing recently. Jodie and family were wonderful. Despite being very busy, Jodie, and her staff and family were most accommodating. Accommodation was simple but clean and comfortable, and I slept soundly! Food was geared to large numbers of diners due to our shared dining arrangement during the Big... More

We have just spent another long weekend at Ross River Homestead and as always Jodie and Shane and their crew were friendly and helpful, the food was generous and fresh, and the setting amongst the beautiful hills, ranges and rivers is always glowing and glorious, especially at sunrise and sunset. We heard and saw many birds, including a Red Tailed... More

Big Sing In Central Australia was held at Ross River Resort, an hours drive east of Alice Springs. What a great location amidst the ancient ranges, and the RR Resort mob are friendly, efficient and produced wonderful food.

Ross River Resort is remote and beautiful. There is a choice of cabins, bunkhouses and camping and the old homestead has been preserved with the addition of a large bar and restaurant. There are many references to the history of the place and a book exchange if you want to spend your evenings reading. Nearby is the stunning Trephena Gorge... More

Away from roads, noise and WiFi this place is an oasis of low key relaxation. Friendly but efficient you can stay in the bush either as a camper or in basic cabin with bathroom. Food is good and plenty of it! There's a rustic bar, fireplacea in and outside. Great place for groups. Plenty of history from the days when... More

Imagine driving along a quiet country road with wonderful scenery and wild life. The road eventually ends at an outback resort which is based on an old cattle station. Shane the manager vwelcomed us and after serving ice cream and fruit juice gave us a guided tour and potted history of the resort. This may not be 5 star accommodation... More
