The Puma Gold City Roadhouse on the outskirts of Charters Towers has been praised to Spy by many truck drivers.
It is beside the Flinders Highway near the intersection to the Gregory Development Road which takes you to Clermont about 350km away.
The location is about 130km from coastal Townsville and 750km from outback Mount Isa in the other direction.
This is a busy route for road trains and there is plenty of parking beside the roadhouse. Triples and quads can fuel up there with comparative ease.
It is a short walk to the roadhouse where there are toilets and showers, a range of takeaway food and a sit down area with a nice menu.
