Port of Bourke Hotel was good on the way to the OCR in 2010.

stayed here enroute to Scrapheap ride last year, we camped in the yard, but plenty of indoors options available. A real guest house feel with lots of young euro backpackers in residence. AND a locked gate with resident blue heeler.

Caravan park is supposed to be good too, I think they have onsite caravans.

I stay at The Port Of Bourke Hotel every time I'm in Bourke , a great Feed and a bed for about $60 , a big locked gate to secure the vehicle and friendly service . Two thumbs up from me , I'll be staying there in about a month on my way back from Innaminka .

Publican's name is Locky , he used to ride a DRZ before a growing family and a thriving business took it's toll .

+1 but inflation has caught up. It's now $65 per night dinner bed and breakfast.

Yep, I wouldn't stay any where else in Bourke.

It is just out of town so apparently the "locals" don't bother you.
