As a large organised group of 12 hot, sweaty motorbikers we camped within the grounds with our swags. The toilet and shower facilities were great and the hosts most welcoming. The rooms and rental apartments looked very special indeed. We visited their bar in the evening, with its relics from the past and were educated about the area and farming background of our hosts. Other guests that we saw eating there appeared to be very well looked after. In the morning it rained as we were packing up and the various verandahs and shelters helped us to keep our kit dry before setting off. A great place and well worth searching out.

Thanks Dobby for your review. What a surprise it was to have 12 motor bikers from all over the world just drop in! It was our pleasure to put you all up for the evening and we are glad that you enjoyed your time at Hale River Homestead. Next time a bit longer perhaps!

We were looking for a weekend escape from Alice Springs to celebrate our anniversary and found absolute perfection at Hale River. The owners - Lyn, Sean, Sophie, BJ and young David make you feel part of the family from the moment you arrive, and go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. We treated ourselves to a night in the Gen Shed and were blown away by the gorgeous room and beautiful surroundings. A hidden gem - we are looking forward to finding an excuse to come again!

We didn't know this place existed but figured we would stop for the night. Upon coming to the gate, we were greeting with a warming wave. Lynne was so very helpful and informative making us feel at home. As we were camping and things at the homestead were quite, we were offered the luxury bathroom where we could shower as a family making life mug easier. The facilities were perfect - no issues. Vet clean and tidy!

Our children were offered to attend school the following morning which was very exciting. They got to check out the Air School and spend time with David.

The camping area was lovely and green with lush grass. A nice treat from the dirt.

Although our stay was short, this was our favourite place to stay.

We visited Hale River Homestead and because of the friendly welcome we stayed for a couple of days. Small number of powered sites and unpowered sites available. Amenities are basic but clean. Fabulous ambience and one can really feel the serenity. Road in is a bit rough but we got there with an 18 foot van.

Thanks Adrian for your lovely review and rating of your recent stay at our home, Hale River Homestead. As many before you have stated the road is the trade off to this beautiful part of the world, that is the East Macs! Your comments about the ambience and serenity brought a smile to my face as that is exactly the feeling we hope people experience here at Hale River Homestead. Wishing all the best with your future travels.

We stayed here with Outback Elite Tours. The owners/staff were absolutely great. We felt like a part of the family before we left. We were in the Cottage and it was excellent. Their grandson David personal gave us a tour of his Air School room and did a drawing for my granddaughter. We loved eating together like a family(great food too). If you want a beautiful quiet place to spend some time, this is it. I think my granddaughter would have moved in and stayed.
