Theebine Hotel owner, Jackson If you haven’t been to Theebine, then you should! Update: We were back again, last weekend for the opening of the new deck at Theebine Hotel. What a night, and I slept like a baby in the van. Check out the photos on our socials! We visited last September, met the publican, some CAMPS fans (thanks Jeanette and friends) and said hi to the local councillor, Cr Dolly Jensen and had a lovely relaxed lunch! Since then, the Mary River flooded and has caused dreadful damage to the area. So, I’d say, they need your support even
After a low-key two and a half years, the Barrow Creek Hotel has been able to revitalise and offer meals and a place to stay to the weary traveller between Alice Springs and Tennant Creek.

For a real Aussie outback experience, stop in at the roadhouse, enjoy a meal and support this long-time local business. The pub itself is almost 90 years old, with the owner, Les, operating it for the last 34

Gay makes meals for any workers staying in the rooms, even packing them a nice morning tea and lunch for their days at work. Thursday night is Pizza night and Friday nights the older locals get a nice home-cooked meal.

We thoroughly recommend this lovely pub with friendly staff at Uki. Arriving late (we lost an hour crossing the border into NSW), fortunately the pub was still open for meals. I snagged a table on the verandah, and sipped our cold drinks whilst we waited for lunch to arrive. My niece said it was, ‘the best chicken schnitzel I had in a long time’.
