Located on the Barkly Highway, just past the Tablelands highway intersection heading towards Mount Isa. Or alternately 186km in, off of the Stuart Highway and Three Ways turnoff. We stopped here for one night while heading to Mount Isa. A great stay in an isolated yet lovely location. The staff here are very polite and we really enjoyed the food... More

We stayed in a motel unit which was basic but very clean and comfortable which made for a great nights sleep. The dinner was excellent, plenty to choose from and very reasonable considering the remote location. A genuine oasis in the desert

Have just stayed here after a trip up North. Caravan Park not too bad but I do think the dump point should be maintained. After trying to empty our cassette my husband discovered that all the hose fittings were missing therefore was not able to wash the toilet nor any of the surrounds. He came back feeling quite ill.

Well positioned between Mt Isa and Tennant Creek. Very secure given it's isolated location and absence of adjoining township. You can park (uncovered) out front of your unit. The units are clean and quite well presented considering the isolated location. The place has a small but clean swimming pool and a well appointed bar room with adjoining dining area. I... More

We always stay here on our way through from our home town of Alice Springs, and it is one of our favourite stays. A consistently high standard can be expected, with recently refurbished rooms, which are clean, spacious and comfortable. We always get a really good night's sleep in what are very comfortable beds. The restaurant food is excellent (try... More

we found the caravan park (We had a van ) to be as good as most places we have stayed in the outback. It has drive through, shaded spots and we experienced the normal friendly travelers in the park. It's not 5 star, but with hot showers, bar & restaurant it was restful and relaxing. If you need 5. Star... More

We stayed here for one night in a Motel room. Wow! This was one of the best motel rooms we stayed in during our trip from Tamworth. Very clean, large and well equipped. Air was on when we arrived which was a great touch by the staff. Price is reasonable as everything is run on diesel generators (500 litres per... More

Had a lovely camp spot at the Barkly Homestead, sat in the sun outside our campervan enjoying a lovely sunset. had a fantastic hot shower, thanks for good water pressure !! followed by a great meal in the bar with live music. Really enjoyed our stay while we travelled from Cairns to Darwin last month.

My wife and I travel extensively by motor home throughout Australia and we stayed here in 2011 and liked the place so much that we know we would be back. The place has not changed at all in 3 years and from our point of view that is a good thing. The staff were and are very friendly and accommodating... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I apologise for running out of water. This is due to a temporary issue we are having with our water treatment infrastructure and we are in the process of rectifying this. In any case, when there is an interruption to our water supply there is a delay of no more... More
