I've read the other reviews of the "Madura Oasis Resort & Roadhouse" and thought I should add my 2 bobs worth.
After leaving Port Augusta in the morning and travelling for over 1100 km's in 12 1/2 hours Madura was indeed an oasis!
We booked a room and proceeded to the bar verandah for a cool drink.
Madura has a population of 8 & they all live and work at the roudhouse/resort.
The staff are friendy & the reataurant meals are exceptional.
Although the motel beds are comfortable and the bathrooms clean the rooms are badly in need of a makeover to replace worn carpets and tatty curtains.
But.....after a few hours sitting on the verandah enjoying a cool drink & chatting with both the locals and other travellers,the condition of the rooms fades into obscurity.
all in all,if you need a place to rest,or have a feed,I suggest you mark this one down as a must stop along the way.
