Tjukayirla Roadhouse

Caravan Park - Western Australia


The Tjukayirla Roadhouse is located deep within the Great Victoria Desert on the Great Central Road. We are extremely pleased to offer travellers to this unique part of Australia a wide range of products and services. Carol and Ross look forward to welcoming all intrepid travellers bold enough to journey across the The Great Central Road (GCR) - looking to explore what is a “bucket list” trip for many. The longest shortcut in Australia is the “Outback Way”, a shortcut from Winton, Qld to Laverton, WA. Tjukayirla Roadhouse is located 300kms EAST of Laverton and is a welcome respite for weary travellers. Stop in just to say g’day, have a look at the wonderful collection of photos on the walls or to sample some of the roadhouse tucker (not to mention the best burgers in all of WA – and maybe the world!) Or, even better still, pull up and stay for the night. There is nothing quite like a cold beer or a refreshing glass of wine at the end of a dusty day, sitting around a campfire and gazing up at the most amazing displays of stars. Don’t forget to BYO! We, the managers and staff of Tjukayirla Roadhouse, are committed to providing the best service, the cleanest facilities, and the most AWESOME food on the whole of the GCR.

We promise you won’t be disappointed!
