Truckies praise popular roadhouse in the west

About 20 triple road trains can park at the Roebuck Plains Roadhouse near Broome, which is a popular place with drivers.

It combines a restau­rant and tav­ern, truck stop, car­a­van park and air-con­di­tioned rooms with ensuites.

It is located 33km from Broome at the junction of the Great Northern Highway and Broome Road.

The owners for the past 10 years are brothers Leeland and Matthew Sharpe.

The restau­rant and tavern includes a fully licensed bar and hosts regular live music events.

Numerous truckies have told Spy they stop there often. “The food is good and the facilities clean and there is lots of parking,” one told me.

“This is my favourite roadhouse in all of Australia. I never drive past without stopping there. The staff are always great, the meals are terrific. Definitely my choice of the best roadhouse,” said another truckie.

Leeland added that many trucks stop off and they come from around Australia.

“Truck drivers love ordering steak and our staff are friendly. We want to make them happy. Many use the free showers which will soon be upgraded,” Leeland said.

The roadhouse is open from 6am to 10pm seven days a week and has 24-hour fuel access. Food is served from 6am to 9pm daily.
