“Great place to stay in the outback”
Reviewed January 28, 2009

A great place to stay when travelling in the outback areas.

The rooms were tidy and clean. Basic but adequate, just what you expect for a good value place to put your head for a few days.

Meals across the road at the bowling club were WAY above average, best value I have seen for years.

Don't forget to visit the hot bore bath's on the eastern edge of town. Great for an evening dip.

For the person who wants to see a more authentic outback experience, ask to locals to direct you to a drive out to the Glengarry opal fields, spend a day trip to visit this area.... well worth a look. Have a beer in the wodden slab pub and watch wild goats and pigs roam past the bar!

  • Liked — Great food over the road at the Bowling club.... great locals, friendly people.
