Warm hospitality and a helpful mechanic
The mechanic at the Ellenbrae station also helps with flat tires. Since our two spare tires were already "dead", we decided to take a break from our tour across the Gibb here. We had made contact the day before and were already expected. In less than an hour two tires were repaired and one wheel was fitted with a new tire. Thanks Mark!
The station itself is an oasis. A well-kept garden welcomes you. It is a nice place to take a break. Eating and drinking is easy to manage. More is not necessary in the outback. We had the best scones (outside of England) and enjoyed a classic cream tea. We really didn't expect that in this place.

Oasis on the Gibb River Road
We didnt stay here but stopped after the worst section of road that we did on the Gibb,Of course we had heard that they did the best scones so had to stop.My husband said the scones were doughy but that could just be to make me feel better about mine.It is a green oasis in the middle of no where.Toilets and a beautiful cafe where you can get meals and coffees.I wish we had checked out the camping areas but we had the van on the back and the camp spots are away from the restaurant.No internet but if you make a donation to the Royal Flying Doctors they will give you the wifi password.The road in there was fine(compared to what we had just done) and it gave us a chance to put everything back in its place inside the van as everything ended up on the floor.Next time I would stop for the night and check out the camp areas and relax in the beautiful green gardens

Would stay again
While travelling the Gibb, decided to stop at Ellenbrae for a break. Of course tried the famous scones, which were very tasty. The place is nicely maintained and the staff very friendly. Therefore, we spontaneously decided to spend a night at the bush camp. No power, but the rest was nice and in very good shape. We loved the place
