We had been touring around the outback for two weeks & this was an oasis with the best hamburger and potato wedges ever - thank you so much. Its a really interesting building - like a museum with lots of artifacts and photos from the previous owners and families who have made Ross River their home.. (we didnt stay here... More

We stayed at Ross River Resort for one night, camping at a powered site. Our site cost $39 per night, and was a large grassy area with amazing views of the surrounding gorge. The camp had some nice campfire areas set up, wood needed to be collected prior to entering the campsite. There are no camp kitchen facilities, and there... More

Great place to visit with the family not far from Alice Springs only 85 km so great short trip for a holiday or if you are a visitor and alternate place to stay for the weekend. The amenities are old and the showers are too cold in the cool weather but it is nice to have a shower and toilets.... More

Living in Alice springs we've been coming to Ross river for over 30 years, stayed in the campground, cabins and eaten from there restaurant. This time as we have a new baby we thought we'd bring a picnic lunch as it's easier with a baby and buy a couple of drinks. NO PICNICS, seriously you own an outback homestead, we... More

We stayed 3 nights in one of the rustic cabins on the property and ate all our meals in the homestead except for a packed lunch that we took out with us one day. The old homestead and accommodation are at the end of the bitumen east of Alice Springs. We only had a 2WD car and our camping days... More

Ross River Resort is a great base for accessing some of the local attractions, such as N'Dhala Gorge, the Arltunga Historical Reserve-ruins and Ruby Gap via 4WD and Trephina Gorge Nature Park which is easily reached via a 2WD. The Homestead is 85km east of Alice Springs following the Ross Highway. Some nice little stop-over’s along the way include, Emily... More

My wife and I loved the location and rustic cabin we stayed in! The friendly staff made us feel welcomed from start to finish. Meals were home cooked and even accommodated for the vegetarians. Trephina Gorge was one of the incredible tourist spots close by and well-worth a visit. Thanks to Shane, Jodie and staff for making our holiday very... More

This was a beautifully balanced few days. Our rustic cabin was comfortable, clean and air-conditioned. Just outside we could gather wood and have our own campfire. We walked to the nearby camping/caravan area which was spacious, green and shaded by gracious old trees, with very good facilities. We received a warm friendly welcome from Jodi and Shane. Their helpful suggestions... More
