It has been 7 years since our last visit to Barkly Homestead and the accommodation has actually improved. We stayed in a motel room but there are now also cabins available which look fairly new. The room was clean and tidy with a well maintained feel. The bed was firm but comfortable and the aircon worked well but the ceiling... More

Unfortunately we were not able to stop overnight, but we made a point to stop for fuel and breakfast this morning. Barkly Homestead made such an impression on us when we came through last December, that we wanted to see it again on our way back to Qld. Definitely recommend this place to all passing through there.

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night on our way to Brisbane. My first impression of the room was wow . Clean and a good size cabin. I've stayed at 5 star hotels were I pay 400$ a night plus Barkly homestead is given these expensive places a run for there money .

Our powered site was shady and accessible to all amenities. It's pretty much choose your own site which is refreshing. We enjoyed the pool which provides afternoon shade. In the high 30s temp it was a welcome relief. The shop has a good variety of meals and essentials available. We paid 209.9 per litre for diesel but this is definitely... More

Don't believe people when they say the caravan park is expensive. $35 night wasn't at all expensive. Lovely pool. Lots of large trees to be under. Good food at the shop. What more could you ask. Toilets and showers clean.

We spent one night here en route to Darwin. We were very impressed with the accommodation which looked relatively new. We were well away from the road in lovely grounds. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We stayed in a motel room but we noticed that there were some cabins as well. Would recommend booking ahead as there aren't loads... More

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.
