Stayed over night on the way to Katherine. Amenities were clean & the camp grounds tidy. Prices in the restaurant were reasonable for the location considering that they have to generate there own power.The staff were friendly & helpful.

This will have been my 5th stop at the Barkly Homestead in the last couple of years and the first time I was camping rather than staying in a motel room. Each other time the rooms have been very spacious and very clean and I found the same level of care in the camping facilities. What really blew me away... More

Wanted to stay on a powered site. After filling up the tank and paying for the site, I tried to find the site after a very vague description from the front desk ('past the pool - you cant miss it'). Drove past the pool and found an area with power and water hookups, assuming this would be the site. Even... More

Thank you for your feedback on your very short stay with us. I do however feel the need to refresh your memory of the actual events that took place. Upon checking in, you were made aware of the upgrade taking place in our camping grounds and were offered a discounted rate as a result. You were advised that only a... More

Day 5 of travelling for us and all we wanted was a place to rest. We were pleasantly surprised with the venue. There was a sign saying their prices would be expensive we found them to be on psr with any other place we had stayed. The room was clean and tidy and thank goodness the bathroom was quite modern....

Stayed one night in a twin motel room and it was great. Very clean, comfortable beds and a great shower. Parking was excellent and the aircon was the best. We had the best sleep. We certainly got our money's worth. The staff were very friendly and check in was a breeze. Had a meal at the restaurant and was basic... More

Located in an ideal place for an overnight stay. Though there is not much to do around, it is an oasis of rest on the long stretch of road. A clean friendly place offers excellent breakfast and other meals. Happen to run into Tom Mayne, who told me it is a family-run place and provided very helpful travel advice.

Camped twice on unpowered sites and felt we hardly got a thing for our money. The bbq was absolutely disgusting hadn't being cleaned in living memory. The ladies showers weren't too bad but the men's were terrible, showers were dark, dingy and dirty, not a mirror anywhere on the wall. I feel that because they are in a convient spot... More

We camp here for one night. The grass was very green and comfortable to camp on. We had access to clean and very modern amenities. There is also an outside pool. All staff were very welcoming and nice. They have BBQ facilities available.

We have stayed here twice now and have enjoyed our stay both times. The meals from the restaurant are lovely and reasonably priced. The cabin we stayed in this time was well presented, clean and spacious. Our only minor negative regarding the cabin would be the aircon attached to the wall vibrating and cutting in and out all night keeping... More
