Borroloola Hotel Motel

There is no doubt that Borroloola is a very isolated township.

Located 970 km from Darwin and 380 km from the Stuart Highway. The landscapes around Borroloola is beautiful. The National Parks include Barranyi National Park, Caranbirini Conservation Reserve and Limmen National Park. Borroloola lies in tropical Gulf Savanna country which stretches around the Gulf of Carpentaria from North Queensland. The increasing use of 4WD and the growth of barramundi fishing as a popular sport has seen the town evolve from an Aboriginal settlement to a small tourist destination.

The Borroloola Hotel Motel has over 20 rooms with secure parking available. The licensed onsite restaurant will provide Chinese food and fully stocked supermarket will supply enough essential groceries for your trip there. It takes five minutes to walk from the Borroloola Airport via Charter.

The countryside around Borroloola is rugged, majestic and beautiful. The MacArthur River, which runs close to the town just behind the hotel is a great place to sit and observe the wildlife and birds in the area. Don't be tempted to swim in the river however as crocodiles call this river home. The countryside around Borroloola is diverse - from colourful wildflowers throughout the bush to waterways with water lilies and stands of tall, imposing trees. There is plenty to explore and admire.
