“A great escape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

The third visit here and loved every minute. 4 wheel drive trip is a must as scenery is spectacular. We will definitely be returning and spreading the word about this relatively unknown part of the country

Stayed April 2014, traveled with friends

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

have just come back today from a 3 night stay at Bendleby Ranges. a group of 12 of us stay at the Shearers Quarters for a weekend of relaxation and 4WDriving - they do not go hand in hand!
the track ratings, we thought, we spot on with the varying degrees of difficulty and Warren was great with his advice and recommendations of what tracks to try first to build up some confidence and also test your skills. the views were great and varied and all drivers and passengers thoroughly enjoyed the tracks however after having a good look and a bit of a walk along Billy Goat Track, we wisely decided not to drive this track in our vehicles.... will leave this for another day when cars and skills may be upgraded.... definitely not for the faint hearted!
the accomodation was great, the beds really comfortable and a well equip kitchen and outside undercover area for keeping out of the sun or rain. showers were hot and no septic smells from the toilets as we have found at other shearers quarters we have stayed at in other locations.
Warren and Jane were great hosts and kept us well topped up with some great firewood.
With a quite diverse group of travellers, everyone enjoyed their stay and we are looking forward to booking again in a few years time..

I stayed at Bendleby for 1 week and can't speak highly enough of the hospitality shown by Jane and Warren and the rest of the staff. The camp kitchen is a sight for sore eyes in the middle of nowhere. The 4wdriving is anywhere from easy to hard with some beautiful scenery thrown in.
Highly recommended if you like the outback, peace and quiet, 4wdriving and an air conditioned camp kitchen with hot showers and flushing toilets (all clean!!!).

This was our second time to Bendleby Ranges with the family. Camping at Brady's campsite we had a fantastic 4 days with other friends. Bushwalking, 4WDing (for all levels), Photography and general just loving the environment. The scenery spectacular and views are amazing. Camp cooking on the fire with plenty of free provided wood this is a place you need to experience to get back to nature. Great place for the kids to fossick through creek beds and get away from the city stuff. Good clean facilities for an unspoilt remote location.

Jane & Warren were fantastic hosts always there for a chat and plenty of info to get the most of your stay.

Will hopefully get back again this year

A nice weekend with friends, located in a secluded camp spot on this property - bush camping experience, with access to necessary facilities, crystal clear night skies. During day time, some more challenging 4 wheel driving through interesting terrains and some great views. Billy goat track was a terrific challenge and a fantastic experience, although with some helpful guidance from on-site management of the property. Enjoyed some walking over hilltops and chats over camp fire. Overall a terrific place to bush camp without being too remote and great 4 wheel drive experience.

Room Tip: Just ask for serenity - they will deliver!

We had heard good things about the Bendleby Ranges so decided to give them a try. We hooked up the caravan and camped near the homestead. Having done a few 4WD tracks we were keen to try out those here. Brilliant!! For those that want a bit more of a challenge these tracks are great. Well sign posted, they will test your skills.
The facilities were great, exactly as we expected, clean and well kept.
Sitting at night by the camp fire (wood supplied) with a cold beer watching the millions of stars shining, what a magnificent experience.

We will be back. Tim & Julie
P.S. It is also dog friendly which is great for us.
