We have been visiting Michael & Jane's lovely place for the 4th time within 8 years and are amazed it is so well taken care of it still looks like brand new.

Hands down the best place I stayed during a 2 week outback Qld road trip. All the facilities you need from kitchenette and table and chairs, to one of the most comfortable beds you'll ever sleep in. Add to that the free wi-fi, swimming pool, and onsite observatory along with Jane the super friendly host, and this place is definitely...

I visit The Gemfields usually at least once a year and since I discovered The Rubyvale Motel and Holiday Units in 2011 I have stayed here every time. Additionally, I have taken many friends who are first time fossickers out over the years and I know that (since they got hooked) they all stayed here on their subsequent visits. The...

It was a lovely place to stay, nice and quiet with everything you need. The cabins are in blocks of 3 and spread out around the property. There is Gem shop at the reception and the owners are hands on and lovely to speak with. The place was also very clean.

The accomodation is great. So clean and well maintained. Easy to get around from the location. The owners are a delight and know so much about the area and gemstones. Great pieces of jewellery available that show fantastic design quality. This is the second time we have stayed and it didn't disappoint.
