Barkly Homestead

Member since: January 2017

Barkly Homestead is a remote roadhouse situated on the Barkly Highway, halfway between Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory and Camooweal in Queensland. It is the first and only stop for travellers crossing the border into the Territory, providing welcome relief from an overall journey of over 460km between towns.

The Homestead provides a range of services to a broad customer base, including the local cattle stations, mining organisations, the trucking industry, aspects of aviation, both recreational and commercial, road repair crews, and most predominantly the many tourists seeking the marvels of the Australian outback.
