Arrived here in the early evening-it's about 10-15 minutes off the Stuart Highway.Sealed road that leads you to this quirky place.Mainly consists of a pub,some houses and petrol bowsers.The pub consists of the bar,an outdoor area,cabins,rooms,and caravan facilities.The meals are large and of a good quality.Entertainment is provided at times but there wasn't any during our stay.
We shared a 4 bedroom (bunks) dorm with a shared bathroom.Clean and cool with aircon and fan.
The bar is covered in bras,pants hats etc signed by previous travellers.There's lots of memorabilia and you can spend a lot of time browsing through the pub.I would have liked to spend more time in this area as there's a lot of information about John McDouall Stuart-an amazing,gutsy explorer.
Good value for money overall with our room around$140-00 for the 4 of us
