Barkly Homestead Roadhouse – Northern Territory

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Barkly Homestead is a remote roadhouse and yet the nicest we have stayed at. From the dinner to the caravan parking, all very nice.

This was our stop after Banka Banka Station a great but basic camp. Barkly Roadhouse was a little bit of luxury we were not expecting.

After topping up with fuel we head in a checked out the roadhouse. With it’s amazing looking pie’s, cakes, restaurant and bar we new we would be back that night.

The camp

At Barkly you will find all you need in a camp. Whether you are in a tent or a van. For tents you have a large grass area and a camp kitchen with bbq’s. For vans they have a couple of parking areas. Parking lanes with trees either side for power and water sites and a large area for un-powered.

With the Northern Territory heat the pool is a welcome sight as is the shade from some of the trees.

They have a dump point and the usual toilet, shower and laundry.

Barkly Homestead Roadhouse

You can head to the roadhouse for Barista coffee, snacks, lunch, dinner, drinks, clothes, food, souvenirs. Gas bottle refills


We loved the look of the pastry’s so had a pie and cake for lunch. They do have healthy options which is unusual for a roadhouse. You can get fruit and beautifully filled fresh sandwiches.

Heading back at night for dinner and check out the meals and bar. The food is restaurant quality and presented as it would be in any good city cafe.

Whether you are having dinner or not, head to the bar for a refreshing drink and aircon. If you like a game of pool head to the well presented outdoor area and relax.
