Take a scenic drive out East and in an hour you can be at Ross River Resort. A great place for a morning or afternoon drive or even stay overnight. We stayed in the rustic log cabins with own bathroom, air con (one of the rare times it was set to 'heat' mode) and hand laid stone flooring. All very... More

Just spent a great weekend at resort for scrapbook retreat. Jodie was very helpful in giving us Conference room as she did not know what to expect. We had a brilliant weekend and staff were great. Felt right at home and are planning on going back again for more experiences as there is so much more out there to see.... More

We have just returned home from a trip to the NT and found Ross River Resort to be an absolute gem and a highlight of our trip away. The backdrop of the stunning range in the campground was amazing and to sit by the campfire at night, a joy. Shane's hospitality was first class and the effort that this couple... More

Only stopped by here but the welcome you get is very homely. I am still dreaming about the steak sandwich I had there. Coming from Melbourne, this was a real taste of the outback for me and I could not stop looking around the main building. Next trip I will be booking accommodation there for sure.

Good customer service is difficult to find these days but Shane provided bucket loads to my wife and I and he was very friendly and informative. Great location to base yourself to visit all the local gorges in the East Macdonnell Ranges. Homestead had great atmosphere and loved the bar made of polished sleepers. Recommend you stay here.

We live in Alice and it was our first time out to Ross River Resort this week. In one word beautiful. Shane and Jodie are super friendly and the camp ground is clean, green and there is an abundance of space. Close to Trephina, N'Dhala and Arltunga, its worth staying at this park for safety and convenience (we have a... More

An hours easy drive from Alice Springs, Ross River is a must visit to experience true outback hospitality in beautiful surroundings. Jodie, Shane and staff are very welcoming. I stayed in a cabin, which although 'rustic' was very comfortable and clean - my own bathroom and bar fridge. I had all my meals at the homestead.......great country fare. I was... More

Attended the wide open spaces festival, set up well at a great location.. When our motor home broke down Shane and the lovely lady in a 4wd went out of there way to help us when they had lots to do with hundreds of people still at the resort- super friendly and efficient!! Thank you Shane and crew :)

We camped at Ross River Resort for one night on our trip through the Red Centre, but decided to come back for more later, and we stayed for three nights, although it rained and kept raining - this simply is a marvellous place. No luxury - the amenities are basic - but a lot of space in the most beautiful... More
