Barkly Homestead is situatied on the Barkly Highway which is the only bitumen road from the Northern Territory into Queensland. It is a third of the way along from the Stuart Highway to the Queensland border and is a worthwhile overnight stop. It was only a short journey from Tennant Creek (212 K’s) which gave us the luxury of leaving late from Tennant Creek and a relaxing afternoon when we got there.


The weather whilst it was warm, was also very windy and is the most wind we have encountered since the storm we rode out in Dongara some 12 weeks ago. By morning, we had to take down the annexe as the wind was causing havoc with it. It’s just as well we spent overnight here.

This is our last stop in the Northern Territory as we cross the border into Queensland tomorrow.
