We were staying at 80 mile beach caravan park, and decided on a run without the van in tow. Called in here to refill. It's a small oasis in the middle of a long straight road. We chose the mini breakfast, what a misnomer. It was huge. Sat outside in the shade next to assorted old farm epieces, peafowl wandering... More

It looks better than Pardoo roadhouse and is supposed to be cheaper for fuel. Diesel was almost $1.74 a litre..you pay a premium in the bush. It's no frills service and the food is OK. Coffee is just instant. Loved the liar birds roaming around.

If you are planning to stop here on the long drive from Exmouth to Broome, you have to be here before 7pm or else you'll be stuck sleeping in the car like we did. No after hours bell or service. So stop at the roadhouse Pardoo before this one. Ridiculous hours for a roadhouse I may add, 7am-7pm.

Stopped here shortly on a drive north. Wayyyy better than Pardoo. Friendlier, cleaner and more reasonable pricing. Nice selection in the convenience store. Better than most. Staff were cleaning and the amenities were cared for.

We stopped at the Sandfire Roadhouse for a couple hours on a big drive south. Lovely little place in middle of nowhere, variety of food to order and beautiful peacocks wandering around. Also, had great Telstra reception here which was fantastic because had to make some phone calls

The name says it all! We only stopped off there for petrol and something to eat. A thermometer there registered above 40 degrees (January). We ordered pies and set off to explore the amazing things that were outside such as old farm implements, petrol pumps and old signs covering the walls. A peacock wandered passed us as we ate our...

A quick overnight stop, Sandfire Roadhouse is very handy for a drive between Broome and Port Hedland. We walked in and found a lady leaning over the counter who didn't even say hello until we did, and we had to wait until she was finished what she was doing to be taken care of. The room was tidy and clean... More

Sand-Fire Roadhouse is located 270km north of Port Hedland and a good little stop if it is getting late and you do not wish to drive at dusk which is recommended. At $140 per night for a cabin, the price was reasonable compared to many other similar accommodation choices within the Pilbara. How busy this place is reflects on how... More

I camped after a full day of driving from Meeka while towing a boat. I just made it by 7pm to get a camp site but no food was being served or petrol. I had to get to Kununurra the next day and couldn't leave until 7am as had to get fuel. Disappointed I wasn't aware of the limited opening... More

rode in at 1830 and got an ensuite room, it was luxury after a day of riding on the tarmac. Comfortable accommodation , clean and staff that smile. Even though they have a captured audience they still treat you like a guest.The food was great and the prices reasonable for the location.
