We stopped in one of the motel rooms overnight. After a long day on the road it was a welcome stop. The people there are very friendly and the room was very neat and tidy. We ate at the hotel there and the food was delicious and well presented - a credit to the chef out there. The place is... More

After driving all day without much sleep from the night before the Barkly Homestead was just what we needed. The food was very nice and the portions were a good size. The pub was separate to eating area which was nice as we didn't have to sit with drunks; which is something you will experience more in the NT than... More

Typical cabin, very basic, but clean. The nearest alternatives are 200kms west, or 300kms east, neither of which would be any better. So as a spot to break the drive between NT and QLD, it's very well placed. Cabins are clean, quiet and convenient. Fuel is expensive - as expected. Meals are OK, typical outback menu, but prepared to a... More

The only stop on the Barkly Highway this place deserves a good review. We stopped for a night in a van on a powered site. The facilities were new and clean and the pool was a welcome relief from the heat. Decided to eat in the restaurant and was pleased to get a very good rib eye fillet at a... More

The guidebook said to expect a "surprisingly upbeat roadhouse", however our expectations were still exceeded. Immaculate grounds, shop, and restaurant, with excellent friendly staff. It was great to find a roadhouse on our travels that saw the importance of making an effort, we actually ended up staying much longer than expected for our lunch stop. The food on offer was... More

Management are very helpful and run a good show here. Had the best steak ever, quick cold beer then sleep on a comfortable bed in a clean room. Felt recharged for the onward journey. Barkly Homestead is a couple of hours from Three ways, and a touch more from Tennant Creek so its a great spot to stop. Then its... More

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.
