Ross River Resort

Caravan, Camping and Holiday Parks

Want the perfect, tranquil place to base yourself as you explore the majestic East MacDonnell Ranges? Ross River Resort offers a full range of camping options, rustic outback cabins and an historic homestead with full dining facilities.

The original 1898 built homestead forms the basis of the current tourism dedicated facility. Be lazy in front of the open fires in the winter, cool off in the pool when the summer temperature soars. Relax by a camp fire with your new friends in the campground or “Rough” it in a full ensuite rustic cabin.

Make it your base to explore the Trephina and N’Dhala Gorge Nature Parks. Call in and say Hi to the old Ghost Gum, the largest in the East Macs. Soak up the history at Arltunga, the first Central Australian town. Venture to the remote Ruby Gap and see the sand glitter from the all the crushed garnets. At the end of the day come and share your tales with us, enjoy a beer and a meal. Then look up and see a million stars ..
