The new rooms are large, a tad bare but have good showers and air-con, I slept well and it was very clean, a good stop over some 7 hours north of Cairns with tar all the way to Laura now, just 138 km of mixed gravel and tar sections to Musgrave, some big roadworks ongoing here too as the bitumen...

Stayed here a few times on my way up and back down the Cape. Can't go wrong - nice campspots and rooms are available if that's more your style. Food is great and staff are friendly. Has a wall with history.

Camped overnight on our way down the Cape. Very quiet spot with clean amenities. Cafe open for meals if required. Croc spotting in the waterhole out the back and very friendly horses! Amazing night sky!

The accomodation was very comfortable for where we were. The meals were good hearty meals and the people were friendly. What more could you ask for. The building is a lovely old telegraph station which gave it that outback feel but sitting out on a wonderful night having a few cold beers with some of the locals and friends made... More

This is always a stopping point on our trip to weipa, this road house has all you need, home style food, cold beers and camping grounds. Every year we travel to Cape York to go fishing and visit friends. The friendly welcome and country hospitality is something you will always find in these parts of Australia.

This is an oasis in the middle of nowhere. I camped here while travelling on motorcycle, so carrying only bare essentials. The facilities were great, I could get a shower, a beer and feed. The staff were extremely friendly, and chatting to other travellers was great as well. My stop there will remain a fond highlight of my ride for... More

We stayed at this roadhouse on our way heading to the tip of Cape York. It has brand new rooms and are suitable for the family.. Highly recommended for a stop as you are travelling up the Cape. The kids loved the farm atmosphere and the friendly cows.

Given the remote location and the quality of the accommodation in this part of the world I didn't have great expectations, but I was genuinely pleased with my stay and felt that compared to everywhere they made a real effort to provide value for money, decent accommodation and food. We stayed in what a appeared to be a newly built... More

Whilst traveling FNQ pleasantly surprised at the cmping. Bathrooms clean, cheap cost adn the stars were amazing. The lagoon at the back was a pleasant surprise, even if the freshwater crocs prevent swimming

We found Musgrave a convenient place to stop on a two day trip up the Cape York Peninsula from Cairns to Weipa. It was located a good days drive north of Cairns and an easy day's drive on to Weipa. The meals were simple but good. The beer and wine were cold. Be aware however that accommodation on the road... More
