The quality of this site is well above the average grotty roadhouse. This is our second visit and we were not disappointed on our return after 2 years. We are on a van holiday. The amenities are good, offering en suite shower. The cafe and restaurant are excellent, with meals offered in a hotel style dining area, with an al...

This was a scheduled stop en route from the NT to the Queensland coast and after all the previous grotty time beaten roadhouses of the outback, this place was an absolute oasis. Clearly some big money has recently been spent here on everything and it is certainly for the best. All accommodation options are available here for vans, tents and...

We came in after a long day on the road and were offered various accomodation types but we decided on the cabin. What a great choice, so quiet and so clean! Tea and coffee making facilities in the room as well as a kitchenette. We had a park right outside our cabin. The grounds are beautiful and the guinea fowl,...

We stopped in at Barkly Homestead after refuelling at Tennant Creek. The roadhouse itself is quite modern. We ate dinner here and despite being a little pricey (as are a lot of roadhouses), it was good pub-style food. A wide selection of beers and wines are also available. We selected a spot to camp under a tree, but noticed it...

The American girl who serves in the morning makes some of the best coffee I have had and like her all staff are Amazing, accommodating...

We stopped on our way into and out of the territory and were happy both times. Our stop last night we skipped the camper trailer and booked one of the cabins. Nice and clean, comfy beds and the pool was lovely after driving from Alice Springs. Dinner was what we expected, good honest pub food that leaves you satisfied and...

After a long days drive from Darwin to Barkley Homestead we were very happy with the cabins and how quickly our food was served as we had 2 little ones ready to eat. The next day I accidentally put unleaded into my diesel 4wd. the owner and another employee were our saving grace, draining all the mixed fuel out instead...
