The Hann River Roadhouse serves food daily and sells drinks, supplies, souvenirs, fuel and ice with EFTPOS available. There is also a basic mechanical workshop here that can do tyre repairs, trailer repairs, welding, batteries etc. Hann River now has a towing service available for breakdowns/recovery, transport etc.

 You can also do some fishing here in the nearby Hann River. 

In the off season which is November to April, we are opened from 7am till 8pm for fuel food etc and from May till October we are opened till 10pm or later. The kitchen closes at 7.30pm but snacks are available after this time.

Note on road conditions: The Peninsula Developmental Road road is closed for up to four months per year due to the summer wet season causing damage to the surface and flooding over low level river crossings.(source:https://en.wikipedia.org. To get an update on the current road conditions, visit the Department of Transport and Main Roads Website or phone them on 131940. 

Note on communications: Mobile phone coverage is generally not available in Cape York Peninsula, although some networks may have service in major towns, Laura, Coen and Weipa. At the Hann river you can select roaming wifi on your device and create an account and use this paid service at any roadhouses along the way.  It is essential to travel with other communication equipment, such as a satellite phone or UHF radio. It is also advisable to carry a Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) (source:www.nprsr.qld.gov.au).
