Ross river is such a beautiful place! So relaxing. Shane and Jodie are awesome hosts! We love the campsite and the cabins, so peaceful. We try and get to Ross river 4-5 tones a year, great place for a party!

Two sisters enjoyed a fun 4wd tour of a small part of a large property. Shane very generously spent some time pointing out major geological features as well as some of the introduced animal species that have made the place their home. Future luxury camping plans would be a worthwhile extension of the accommodation. A superb sunrise which highlighted ranges... More

Ross River Resorts was one of the gems of our 5 week tour of Australia. When you wake up in the morning you know where you are (not a sterile hotel room but a rustic cabin with peacocks tapping at the window). The food was awesome, way beyond my expectations. Even though we were only there two nights we felt... More

I can't recommend this place highly enough, and would like to thank Shane and his family for a memorable visit. We rounded off a three-week 4,000 km trip round the Northern Territory with a final night at Ross River, and it proved the highlight of our trip. The pristine scenery is one thing, and the bird life another, but there's... More

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.
