We're touring Australia in a motorhome and as managers of camp sites in the UK look for good quality sites. Roadhouse camp sites can be a bit more basic than some we have stayed in, however the facilities here were probably the least impressive we have come across, not particularly clean, lots of flies in the sinks and loos. The...

Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry to hear our facilities were not up to their usual standard during your stay. However, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed the emu farm, shop and bar and that our staff were able to assist. All the best for the rest of your travels.

For a Roadhouse this was Immaculate! Staff friendly Rooms clean, or though they do not supply toiletries except for liquid soap. There is a small swimming pool and tennis court. Sunrise and sunset areas. Everywhere clean and tidy. We walked through the caravan park and looked at their shower block - one could eat their food off the floor it...

We drove 1/2 way to Uluru and stayed here (as we had flown to Alice springs that day and didn't want to drive all the way when it would get dark - increased risk of hitting an animal). It was an okay place for a night. The beds were comfy. The pool was lovely for a swim. We got a...

We stopped here for the fuel, and stayed for the food. Fresh and well prepared, with a decent menu. If you're passing through the area, make sure this is one of your stops, and try the wraps or the burgers, either is great.

We stopped here for coffee and fuel en route from Alice Springs to Kings Canyon. Great freshly made coffee and good facilities. A good break on a long drive. Shopping supplies a little limited and relatively expensive.Good free WiFi

One of the better roadhouses along the Stuart Highway. Typical roadhouse menue reasonably priced for the location. One of the best hamburger and chips i had for a long time. Friendly staff and nice amenities and outside shaded tables where you can enjoy BYO food.

We stayed here as a base to Uluru with two young kids and really enjoyed ourselves. The rooms are basic but big and clean. The kangaroo and emu enclosures are cool, the kids loved this. We also used the pool and sunset viewing areas. Great photo opportunities. Good food in the pub and free wifi was an unexpected bonus. If...

In fact the best roadhouse accommodation on the Stuart Highway south of Alice. Rooms are large, perhaps slightly dated but comfortable furnishings, pleasant courtyards with quandong trees. Excellent takeaway chicken burger and chips from roadhouse - took a lot longer than the sign-promised five minutes, but well worth the wait!

We were quite impressed with Erldunda, as far as roadhouses go... Our motel room was basic but clean. Staff were very friendly and seemed happy to be there. The tavern had a range of offerings and the meals we had were tasty and very generous serves. It was quite a lively place for somewhere in the middle of the outback....

Think about it, you can have a video chat with your family in the middle of nowhere! Comparing to other roadhouses which only have very expensive satellite wifi, this is a paradise! Fuel 30 cents cheaper than Uluru 50 cents cheaper than King's Canyon, fuel up before you leave.
