#7 of 12 Speciality lodging in Derby
Situated 200 meters form the banks of the iconic Fitzroy River, Willare Bridge Roadhouse is the ideal location to prepare for you journey on the Gibb River Road. Apart from offering a wide selection of local freerange Yeeda Beef and Blue Bush Lamb conveniently cryovaced, the restaurant makes fresh sandwiches, rolls and salads and has an impressive menu. The Roadhouse also offers accommodation in the form of modern demountable units (dongas) with Air Conditioning and ensuites and has a Caravan Park with full facilities including camp kitchen and laundry. The building that is now Willare Bridge Roadhouse was originally commissioned as part of the Blue Streak (missile) program. A British medium-range ballistic missile program that was test launched from Woomera, South Australia. The building was located on Anna Plains Station and used to track the progress of the missiles during test flights. With the cancellation of the project in the late 1960's the building was sold at auction and delivered to it's current location where it was initially used to house the bridge construction crews building the bridges that crossed the Fitzroy, Yeeda and Minni rivers, now known as Willare Bridge and Minni Bridge.

We did the amazing pay for 2 stay 3 option. This is a great stop over and we left our caravan here while we did horizontal falls. The staff are friendly and the facilities are very clean. They sell amazing coffee here and even iced lattes, it was delicious so I was happy! The sites are spacious, level and you get to pick your own spot. It’s dusty in some areas but that’s expected in the north! “Jonique Life” Follow our journey around Australia on Facebook, Instagram, Tik Tok and YouTube as we highlight wonderful experiences and magical places you can add to your ever growing bucket list.

Stayed o/n. As expected, a very simple donga style accommodation. Was at a minimum clean with comfortable beds and a nice hot shower. Disappointed that had no electric jug to make a coffee after a long drive, the roast meal from the restaurant was only a tiny portion and unexciting and the tv did not work.

Love stopping here for meals when travelling between Kalumburu and Broome. My dogs enjoy the attention in the garden area, and the breakfast is a favourite. The cost of the meals is very reasonable I feel, especially considering the outback position. Saves a diversion into Derby, which sadly lacks cafes open for breakfast on a Sunday. The staff, too, are friendly and the service great.

Disgustingly overpriced at $38 per night. Restaurant closed at 7pm & shop at 8pm. Toilet bowl , sinks & tiled floors coated in red from the bore water! In Men’s one shower had no hot water & the other would not lock. Adjoining door to restaurant kept locked to avoid the smell so guests had to walk right around the side & back in the rain to use the toilet. There was a very limited alcoholic drink selection with no full bottles of wine only piccolos. Trees overhanging the drive were far too low for our MH. We paid $24pn , stay 2 at Lake Argyle with an Infinity Pool & individual very clean cubicles-no comparison. If we had not arrived at 5pm we would have driven the extra 130km to Roebuck Roadhouse, only 40 km from Broome. Advice is do not stay here unless absolutely necessary.
