Marree Hotel


The Award winning historic Marree Hotel is one of Australia’s classic outback hotels. Built in 1883 the two storey solid stone structure is a ‘Gold’ Tourism Award winner for Best Standard Accommodation, South Australia, in 2017, and won ‘Bronze’ for the best in Australia.

The hotel offers superior outback accommodation with 28 ensuite cabins and 12 traditional hotel rooms (with shared facilities). Excellent food in the museum dining rooms and the coldest beer on tap – all on the fringe of the Simpson Desert and Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre – the gateway to the deserts in the far north.

Hundreds of photographs, two museums and tourist information, make a visit to the Marree Hotel an enjoyable and informative experience. Visit the Tom Kruse and John McDouall Stuart museum’s. Take to the skies with a scenic flight over the world’s largest work of art – The Marree Man – and take in the kaleidoscope of colours that highlight one of the most unique natural salt water systems on the planet – Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre.

The Marree Hotel is located at the junction of the Birdsville and Oodnadatta Tracks, an easy day’s drive from Adelaide along the fringe of the magnificent Flinders Ranges.
