2023 update: Bruce & Chris have sold Comeroo and, to the best of my knowledge, it is no longer open to visiting travellers. Great pity. It was a down-home earthy Aussie stay which we enjoyed over many years. For this reason, I won’t tear this page out of my website. I’d like it to stay on for a while at least … here are my impressions.
2020 The location of Comeroo puts it easily within reach of Sydney or Brisbane for a fly-away weekend or a logical stop-over enroute to further outback. Long time hosts Bruce & Chris Sharpe go out of their way to ensure your stay is hassle free and good fun.
We have taken plenty of groups through here over the years, often on our first night away. It's a relaxed, casual and welcoming atmosphere to spend a night before continuing on into Queensland, or wherever you're headed. We've often headed up to the Channel Country and the Top End from here. All that red dust gets us in the mood for the next couple of weeks!
We recently returned to Comeroo, on one of our WardAir Training Adventures. We took 19 people in eight aircraft. I'm here to say, Bruce and Chris looked after us fantastically once again.
Comeroo can cater for all sizes of groups and offers several different accommodation options, including camping if you're coming by road. Otherwise, the rooms are basic but comfortable, (with or without ensuite), the meals are typical country style, so you won't go hungry, and you'll be able to get a cold beer or wine from the Sharp's famous outback bar in their open-air dining shed.
A special treat you won't be expecting is their spa! To keep pace with the fancy-pants spa resorts around the world, Comeroo has its own artesian spa a few paces behind the homestead, fed by natural therapeutic and healing mineral waters coming up from deep underground. OK, so I actually made that bit up about healing, but it feels good.
This is a scene from our first visit in 2010. Back then, the spa was in a paddock in the middle of nowhere, and you had to jump in the 4WD to get there. This time around, the sunset was typically stunning, though next time I'm taking the Moet.
Pilots, you can look all this up, but it's got a 1000m unsealed red dirt strip, Elev 400ft. Ring ahead and talk to Bruce well beforehand re condition of the strip. Ph: 02 6874 7735 Phone ahead or buzz the homestead for an airstrip pick-up.
