Loved this place, our stay was comfortable. The cabins were a little tired but did the job. Staff were lovely. Would definitely look at trying the slab huts or stables but we had our dog with us.

Best accommodation in Longreach , walking distance to Qantas museum and Stockman's hall of fame.
Don, au1 night romance trip
Fair 4.0
Don’t be fooled by the website. There is absolutely no privacy in the Slab Huts and they look in on each other so it feels very uncomfortable. It is like staying in a caravan park but in a very dark caravan! The bath tub area was awful.... no privacy and shabby outlook. Disappointing.
Susan, au2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Leave your car and take a nice walk into town on the Botanic Walkway, a 2.5 km linear garden between the town centre and the Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame and Qantas Founders Museum. Booked tours pick up and drop off from Saltbush Retreat which is convenient. Garden areas are very nice.
