“Rest, relax, have some fun too”
Reviewed 7 March 2017 via mobile

Let the mischievous child in you come out here! Hang your hat, bra, thong, jangles, cap, whatever takes your fancy in this bar. Enjoy a refreshment or a dip in the pool. It all here, everything a traveller needs for a rest from such a long journey. Spend time looking through all the "stuff". I hear a rumour that they remove the items quite quickly after you have gone, shame on them! It's a bit of fun, but I would like to know my items would be there for a while before being discarded. Being a romantic I hoped to go back in 10 years and find them.

Thank you for your excellent review We do not intentionally remove the "stuff" We do take everything down and wash it usually 3 times a year That which survives the machine is returned to it's place. There are items around the place that have been there for many years. See hou in 10 years Cheers!

Only dropped in here for a quick beer on our travels from Darwin to Adelaide but what an amazing place! Great service, well presented and would have loved to have stayed for food but didnt have time. Ladies bathrooms were modern and clean! A happy little place to visit for sure!

Stayed here numerous times while passing through. Always friendly staff, good cold beer and a bloody good meal! For the history of the pub, service they provide and memories they create, you can't go wrong with the price of the room. I think everybody should stay here at least once!

We stayed here for 1 night in September 2016 as part of an organised tour.

Watch for the wallabies on your drive up to the pub - they're everywhere. We arrived here after a long day of travelling and given its location, it was still over 30 degrees at 6pm when we got here so a cool pint was very welcome.

We had accommodation just off the pub itself - it was basic, but fine for one night. Our room had bunk beds, with air con - there was also some mossie spray too which was definitely needed. There was one bathroom with a shower and toilet in the dorm, otherwise we had to use the communal toilets outside - again, this was fine for one night.

The pub is infamous for its collections - tonnes of ID badges, flip flops, road signs, clothes, flags etc. It's got a great atmosphere - there's a pool table and in the end, we just sat and played cards.

We were almost on the last stretch of the drive from Sydney to Darwin travelling for work. We had prepaid for our room but my hubbie said will we keep driving- we would be in Darwin by bedtime? We flipped a coin and decided to stop for the night and boy am I glad we did - what an experience!

On arrival late afternoon we had a friendly greeting and easy check-in, stopping for a cold drink in this iconic, friendly relaxed pub.

We then headed over to our motel room which was diagonally opposite the pub. The room had air con, fridge, tiny but fine ensuite and I have to say was absolutely spotlessly clean. That really impressed me. The room was basic and if as a couple we were stopping more that one night we now think we would pay for a cabin to have more space but for one night this did us very nicely.

We headed over for a drink before dinner, and had cheesy garlic bread followed by really good steaks - with the first bernaise sauce the whole trip (yum!).

Staff could not do more to help you and were all very friendly.

We took lots of photos and loved the relaxed humour of the place.

I think we feel fortunate to have visited in off peak season as I reckon it's absolutely pumping over winter.
