What guests are saying:

Great base for exploring Litchfield Park

Stayed in a cabin for 2 nights while exploring Litchfield National Park. The cabin was clean and comfortable and across the road from the inn – which had great meals and atmosphere. The lounge wasn’t in great condition and could be replaced. Otherwise we were very happy with our stay and would stay here again


Good choice for accomodation and country style pub dinner

We stayed overnight at the inn’s units. These were spacious with all facilities. Had dinner at the inn, not to be missed. Tables set out in the garden, good food, great atmosphere. Check out Charlie the Buffalo of Crocodile Dundee fame (regretably dead and stuffed) and other memorabilia.


Great place to stay

We based ourselves here to explore Litchfield and the surrounds. It had the same warm welcome as I remember from when I was there as a child. The accommodation was clean and affordable. The bistro food was delicious and well priced. Highly recommend the barra. It is such a wonderful setting.


Oasis in the NT

The Adelaide River Inn Caravan Park had a homely feel to it. With the Camp Kitchen, the Swimming Pool, a superb Bistro plus a typical Outback Pub. The staff were amazing and the grassed camping and caravan sites were a welcome. We only planned to stay a few days but the service and close location to the War Cemetery made us wanting to stay longer.


Great feed and music

Had a great lunch here. Two-piece music accompaniment: lady with a guitar singing and a bloke on the drums. Food was excellent: huge burger with all the trimmings, and herself had a chicken salad. Outdoors behind the service station.
