    We had the pleasure of staying here last night 3/9/2015 and found it a lovely friendly spot. We have stopped here for lunch before but not for the night. Mandy was booked out with 70 Charity bike riders (who she was feeding at her own expense) but she still made room for us in her large non powered area down the back. The burger for lunch was great, the toilets and showers were clean and hot and the staff friendly and helpful. With limited water and astronomical power bills for water and refrigeration they are doing a great job. Ignore all these whinging latte set and get out and enjoy the real outback and outback hospitality. Andy

    Belyando Crossing Roadhouse!
    After a big day of travelling we pulled over and stopped the night at the Belyando crossing road house. We booked a room which was clean, well maintained with peaceful settings. We ate in the bar, meal was awesome, huge in size, very filling and priced well. The staff were great, very happy, friendly and outgoing only to happy to chat to the travellers. I recommend this stop to all, I'd certainly stay again anytime I'm on that road again.!
    To those whom complain about this friendly little stop!! What are you? Obviously your one of those people who always want something for nothing. Perhaps if you don't want to pay to use the toilet, perhaps you could clean it in return or better still don't use it.
    For those who complain about the meal size, oh my god, would you prefer a tiny meal and go away hungry? Goodness sakes get over yourselves.
    Fuel is restricted for a reason so that all can make it to the next town, people like you should experience running out of fuel before the next town, perhaps you would have a better view of the world and its ways. Better still, why don't all you critical people say at home, be better travelling without you all on the road.

    We have stayed here recently, i have got to say what a great place to stay. We have a mobile home and could not have had better hosts. $15 for unpowered site, yes the petrol was a little expensive but not bad for the middle of nowhere. The owners even invited us to their family BBQ. So close to nature out there, birds even dingos howling at night. We would recommend this to anyone travelling through this area. By the way filled the tank up no limit.

    The best service ever! Anyone who complains about any aspect of the Roadhouse seriously needs to re-think, we had 5 rooms for 2 nights, 16 of us and they cooked cleaned and smiled the whole time we were there. Keep up the 'great work' and don't listen to any negative comments from anyone. Relax and enjoy you won't get this kind of service anywhere in the city. 10/10

    I'm planning to come thru here in Sept 2015. I've read yr comments, haven't been here but already I'm saying "get a grip". You're in the middle (maybe not quite) of nowhere and everyone has a right to fuel but everyone has an OBLIGATION to respect the owner's right to restrict fuel purchases for travellers so everyone (esp locals) get a fuel allowance. For heaven's sake, plan your trip and understand where you're coming from and going to. It's not that hard. I agree with everyone - you're on holidays for heaven's sake, slow down, drop the city attitudes, relax
  6. Tanya Trapp  of  QLD Thu September 25, 2014 at 4:45 PM

    This park is the best park! I remember it fondly from all my childhood road trips. And anyone who complains about costs are just city people who don't understand that water and fuel is a rare commodity out there... These beautiful people and Belyando Crossing do all they can for the working and holiday makers of Australia. Keep up the great work and us true Aussies will give $5 for the toilet key, as I prefer to have the toilet there than to be stuck on the side of the road!

    My recommendation - stop at Belyando crossing, grab an icecream, grab out a pack of cards or a board game and bond with the family!

    I have stopped here several times for fuel and food, and have never found a problem, I agree with you Nick many a grey Nomad ( but not all of us ) are so up themselves nothing will make them happy they think they are the upper class, but they need to look in the mirror if they complain about the service at this place and many other places on their travels., Those that complain about fuel limits, you have been warned earlier in your trips leaving Charters Towers and leaving Clermont, this is the only Fuel stop, . To the people that run this Roadhouse, keep up the good work.

    All these city-slickers/rich toffee-nosed grey nomads and entitled whingers on here- all bleating on about the lack of 5 star accommodation in the middle of Aussie woop-woop. I'm a well-heeled business owner from inner-city Brisbane, on holiday, and stopped here for rest stop and a bite to eat while driving the Gregory Rd. The "Works Burger" was a monster and the staff were friendly enough, rustic, country type folks. Maybe they don't dot the I's and cross the T's like most of you would prefer (demand) but on the whole, it's a typical Roadhouse- keeping people out of trouble on a long quiet road. Would you prefer to run out of fuel and hope the snakes, roos and Ivan Milats don't catch up with you??.
    Honestly, get a grip, quit whinging and keep perspective- you're on holidays- leave your city attitudes behind!.

    I would just like to say the travelling public If the Belyando Crossing was not there just think what might happen and the cost to you if you have an accident or if your car breaks down or runs out of fuel. We rely holy and solely on the weather we do not have the water as there is only salty or dirty river water to fill you caravan tanks up with, but if you wish i can accommodate you with this water anytime. As I am well aware some people are upset with the $2 deposit on the toilet key, but as not many city people are not aware of that every time the toilet is flushed the electric pump comes on to push the next lot of clean water through. As you might not be aware i am not a public toilet. The $2 deposit was bought in because the travelling public treated me as such and the costs were out of control. As the sign out the front says the $2 will be returned if a small purchase is made. As for the pricing of the Caravan park people you do not consider the cost of insurance when you booking into these small caravan parks,We pay the same amount of insurance as a large caravan park.It is rather expensive. Now as for the $30 fuel limit as we are so far away from anywhere and waiting for the fuel truck to deliver our fuel when we are running low we put a limit on it so everyone can make it to town not just a few.Here we are trying to look after everyone's interests not just a few. Please think about where you are We are not the coast and we don''t and cant provide all the mod cons like they can. We are a small business trying to do the best we can for all.
  10. Disappointed with belyando crossing!! Fri May 9, 2014 at 11:21 AM

    This place is disgusting!!! They have a duty of care to travellers to inform them that they will only supply a maximum of $30 fuel as they are the only fuel service within a minimum of 160kms from the nearest town - however no signs mention this before leaving Clermont or Charters Towers!!They also charge $2 per person to use their toilets! Disgusting!!! Service from the staff was also below average - these people should be ashamed of themselves and I recommend to bypass this place at all costs!!
  11. Megan  of  Brisbane Sun October 27, 2013 at 10:13 AM

    Good place to stay!! Food is great and staff are friendly!! All you lot are just whinging buggers.. Be aware where you are.. Middle of Nowhere.. You can't expect the Taj Mahal!! Get a grip people!! I would recommend ;)
  12. cheryl  of  charters towers Wed August 7, 2013 at 7:23 PM

    Wanted to stop here tomorrow but reading these comments I have no idea where we can stay on the way to Clermont. Long hot drive is a bit much in one day when not well.
  13. Cheryl Wed August 7, 2013 at 7:21 PM

    Thank you for your comments. We are heading there in another day or so and it sounded so pretty. OMG it is a long way to Clermont and hot to. I have no idea now where we should stay. No way would we stay here after those comments.
  14. Belyando Crossing C/Park - A NO NO!  of  Queensland Sat June 22, 2013 at 1:39 PM

    Everyone here is correct, very basic facilities,
    NO WATER to vans.
    Very little space in park.
    We pulled into BC after travelling from Charters Towers - it looked like a jumbled mess out the front, but there was an arrow to the caravan park so up we went. I went in to pay for the night, whilst hubby found a spot. But No, they do not work like this. They pack you in. I paid $30 plus refundable $10 for key deposit to amenities. Then a lady came up to the "park" to show us exactly where they wanted us to park. We were placed in the "middle row" (see pics of c/park below). There was one van in front of us, and another behind. Then as time moved on, another van was placed to the right of us, leaving us absolutely no way of leaving until someone in front or behind of us moved. Not only that, we were "placed" so close to the van in front and the car behind us was very close, so it was almost impossible to maneuver out anyway. It was a total trap and in the case of a fire would have been catastopic.
    Would I recommend you stay here? Absolutely not.
    Especially if you are placed in the middle row of the limited park. Everyone is very close and there is practically no room to put out an awning. To us - it looked like a small space "up the back" had been developed for the express use of raking in as much money as possible from the travelling public in the smallest space possible.
    Yes, they are out there in the middle of nowhere, but if you can find somewhere else or plan your trip so as not to stay here, then I feel you would be a much happier traveller.
  15. neilcorp  of  sydney Fri May 24, 2013 at 10:21 PM

    Well what can I say after all the above? We stay there because it's 550km from Mission Beach and a good days drive as we head home at winter's end on what we call the "fast way home". The next real town is Clermont 170km away and that's too far. Our next stop is Roma (675km), then Moree (493km) and home in Sydney (608km)
    We stay in what passes for a caravan park (pic 3) and there's no water and only a couple of working power points. Because the vans line up one behind the other in a sort of circle around the centre, you generally can't leave when you want to as you're hemmed in. Amenities are passable - just but the site wasn't cheap @ $28
    It is really a wonder why people stop there. Probably just the location and no nearby competition. It maybe that we pass by there in the winter migration season, but despite itself, the place seems pretty well full and that's why they get away with the customer service described above.
  16. Kenn  of  Townsville Tue January 22, 2013 at 2:31 PM

    Stopped for dinner and the gobby young girl got up me for letting my dog out of the car to drink some water while she was allowing other customers to smoke outside of the entrance to the restraunt and right next to the fuel browser. She then gave my wife a mouthful. I asked to speak to the owner and she informed me it was because her dog ran around off the lead in this area!? I informed her that I was displeased scene as I had just spent a small fortune on a pretty bland dinner and meanwhile her customers were still continuing to smoke in the same spots. After getting nowhere I took a photo of their business license for furthur investigation to which the rather daft young lady informed me that the licensee was deceased! Last time I check that's highly illegal. I've made it my life mission to get this place shut down so more people don't get ripped off and abused like me and my family. avoid like aids. Push on to Claremont or charters towers for fuel. Service at both is excellent.
  17. Leslie Crockford  of  Everywhere Fri November 23, 2012 at 10:59 AM

    No internet, no TV, no water, nothing to see, nothing to do and now they are charging 5 star prices for a powered site. This place is off my radar from now on.

    We had the worst burgers we've ever had, from the Belyando Crossing Roadhouse. We like to support local businesses when travelling, so decided to buy smoko from the roadhouse. Hungry after a very early start, we ordered a chicken burger and bacon burger. The chicken was indelible. It was a small chunk of dried out thigh meat which was approximately one quarter of the size of the bun and less than one centimetre thick.. I couldn't even get a bite out of it. To add insult to injury, there was a small piece of bone attached to the meat. At $9.60 it would have been reasonable to expect at least a small piece of breast meat. The rest of the burger was tasteless. My husband had the bacon burger. For $8.60 he got a small amount of almost raw bacon with the rind still attached, and the same tasteless salad. Interestingly, the fuel here was $1.86 per litre, more than thirty cents per litre than other fuel points many hundreds of kilometres north and west of this location. Our advice to other travellers is to avoid buying anything from this location.
  19. A disgruntled traveller Mon July 30, 2012 at 5:17 PM

    We just had the worst night's (or half night) stay at this accommodation on the weekend. We were greeted nicely and as we had called the day before we were able to squeeze into their "last room" which had 3 singles and were charged $100 for a twin room price. To me, high for the standard on offer, but beggers can't be choosers when you're travelling in the out of way places. Accommodation was clean and tidy other than some weird, maybe candle wax, stains on the sheets of one bed; and the taps dripped in the bathroom sink continually. We were exhausted having driven 1000km and needing to do twice that over the next few days, so we were asleep not long after 9pm. All went well until we were woken by the noise from the goings on in the bar as it slowly got louder and more boistrous at 1am. We had a cuppa and went back to bed hoping things would quieten down, no luck 3am the party sounded like a bad Karaoke night and there were some people doing "donuts" in their cars in the car park. We gave up, got dressed and hit the road by 3:15am, we figured it was better to continue our journey and brave the roos and pigs on the road rather than lay in our beds getting angrier (and more tired) by the moment. I would NEVER recommend this accommodation to people who need to continue a long journey the next day. If we had known it would be like this we would have pushed on the Charters Towers, or stayed in Clermont.
