We stayed at Barkly Homestead on the way to Kakadu. Compared to many outback stops this caravan park was a welcome sight. The amenities weren't great becuase renovations are underway but after some of the other stops we were just happy to have a shower. We had a meal at night, the Barramundi was great. Everyone was very friendly and... More

Went camping here for two nights to get out of tennant creek for a while (we live there). We stayed with our two dogs in the unpowered camping area. The facilities are excellent and it appeared the amenities block we used was newly renovated. The caravan park is very well maintained, clean and tidy. Liked the fact we could have... More

An overnight stopover on the way from the Kimberley to QLD... Fuel available but quite expensive so we did not refuel here. Pretty average campground area (for our Ultimate Off Road Camper Trailer) and we found the ablutions in the 'camping area' closed for renovations (and they certainly needed a reno!). Unfortunately, we were not told about the renovations at... More

The only good thing I have to say about Barkly is the location otherwise we would never had stayed there. It was a convenient stop over between Winton and Alice Springs. We made a booking prior to travelling and was given the choice of a room or cabin for the same price. The nice young man that took our booking... More

We stayed in a budget cabin in Cloncurry for $80 a night. We had ensuite, hotplates and oven to cook and a toaster. There were no chairs, no table and the floors creaked and we could hear the neighbours walking about. I guess you can expect this at the price. We came to Barkly Homestead and paid $140 a night...

We are sorry you found the cabins below you're expectations. I am sorry you presumed you would have cooking facilities. We do not have any self contained accommodation and never have. Cooking smells are often impossible to get rid which is very unfair on future guests. The cabins are the same as the motel rooms in every way hence the... More

We stayed one night in a powered site in a camper van and found the large camp ground a better option than the Tennant Creek caravan parks (although it should be emphasised that Barkly Homestead is 2 hours east of Tennant Creek!). The on site generator is a little noisy but unless you camp right next to it the noise... More

Tuesday 21.6.2013..we had driven from Katherine. We had originally planned on stopping at the three ways but decided to venture on. We stopped at the Barkly Roadhouse..booked into a room even though we had a campervan..needed some room to stretch out a bit. Went into the dining area for dinner. We could not believe it. The place was packed. Fantastic... More

Hi Greg, thank you for that kind review. We are glad you enjoyed the bar and grill. We put a lot of effort into making it a great place to eat and relax. We apologise again about the TV remote not being available. When these are taken it takes weeks for us to replace them by the time they post... More

We stopped off in a powered site overnight on our way back to Qld after deciding not to stop at Three Ways and were pleasantly surprised. It is a lovely spot, all drive through sites, which made for an easy exit in the morning, clean amenities and pleasant surrounds. I also had great Telstra internet & mobile coverage. Better than...

Thank you for reviewing our property. We are very happy you enjoyed staying here. We are lucky to have a Telstra tower on the premises so the signal is excellent, however this stops approximately 10km either side of us. We hope to see you again. More

What an oasis on the road from Tennant Creek to Mt Isa. We booked both a cabin and tent-site and were very happy with the accommodation and facilities. All is clean and well maintained with lovely gardens. Plenty of shade and a great swimming pool. The shop, bar and restaurant were well managed and provided a good variety of wares.... More
