    We visited Ross River after Trephina Gorge, as it is a short distance & it was lunchtime. Ross River is a working NT station, but in the old original homestead, which have the thickest walls, & historical information, is a country pub providing basic but...More

    We stayed at Ross River for 3 nights in early September using it as a base to explore the East Macdonnells - Trephina Gorge, Ndala Gorge and Arltunga historic gold mining town. The location is great for this purpose and the 'resort'/homestead setting is very...More

    Sorry you didn't feel as though you had value for money. Could have fixed the light and the water if I had known at the time. A lot of people enjoy getting away from the TV and other technology. We are slowly upgrading our bathrooms...More

    Great grassed camping area. Lots of trees and shade plus good fire pits. Day trips to N'dala Gorge and Arltunga and the gorges out in the East MacDonnells are worth a look. Easy 4wd stuff and not as crowded as the West side with Uluru,...More

    Glad you enjoyed the East Mac's. All our shower heads are done now, we do 'de-calcify'' them on a regular basis, but our water gets the better of us sometimes. Sorry you didn't enjoy your meal.

    This place is a practical place to stay. If you want to explore the East McDonnell ranges without having to return to Alice then this is perfect. The use of the word resort is, however, not a true representation. The website says the options for...More

    Thank you for taking the time to write a review about Ross River. The term homestead in the trading name would be more appropriate I would agree, as the resort badge is used rather loosely in these parts. Our find our ensuite cabins are outback...More
