Ate camel burger, camped on grass(!!!) stunning sunset/sunrise over the old car out the back of the petrol station. Welcomed cold beers on tap - stunning! Bathrooms at campsite need some love, but apparently being upgraded as a type... Worth filling tank of you need petrol, cheapest for a bit!

Bearing in mind the location it is important to temper your expectations in respect of camping facilities. Our caravan site and the facilities were ok but clearly in need of some improvements. We noted new showers were being installed so that will be a significant improvement. The pub is iconic outback and warrants taking time out for a beer or... More

We had a family cabin for 4 adults and 2 children and it was quite good considering where it is. We found it to be clean, comfortable and warm, we certainly could not complain. No the TV didn't work but who wants a TV when you are on holidays. We all had Kulgera burgers at the pub and they were... More

We travelled from Bambun Western Australia and nearly passed this gem of a destination.We had been told to visit here in 1998 by Kevin Bowden a former owner of Kulgera eons ago.He rated the countryside far more interesting than the Olgas even. Taking into account the vast expense of Oz travel and poor,poor,poor,brilliant,poor,adequate listings of motels we encountered and steady... More

This place offers the world and delivered an atlas! The showers and toilets had so much red mud you could have planted potatoes -what a filthy joint. anyone who gave this 5 stars must have little to compare too -give it a BIG miss. No phone tv reception or Internet on camp site.

We stayed here over night one evening on our way to Alice Springs and decided on an ensuite cabin. The price was quite expensive for the condition of the room, especially the bathroom however it was a warm place to rest our head for the night. It is a roadhouse so anything but the essentials should not be expected. The... More

Kulgera the bar, the food and especially the young people that waited on us were excellent. The roadhouse is quite nice as well. The negatives were the motel units showers, basin and sink. I know we are in the outback, and we have travelled for years in the outback and I don't think it is necessary to have the amenities... More

We drove 6hrs from Coober Pedy to the Kulgera Roadhouse without ph reception most of the trip. It is a place to refuel the car, partake in the Happy Hour (6-7pm) at the pub, order dinner over the bar and restock basic items at the store but be warned there is no mobile phone reception. Last week, however, slow buffered... More
