The Granites Motel/Caravan Park (named for its magnificent surrounding outcrops of natural granite boulders) was established in 1985 in time for the Tibooburra School Centenary Celebrations.
It started with five motel rooms and four second hand caravans with an amenities block and a few powered sites. Over the years it has grown into a ten unit motel plus four cabins, two cottages, a very spacious four bedroom country residence, at least twenty six powered sites and a much larger camping area with all the facilities required for a very comfortable and extended stay.
The Reception is situated opposite the Motel Complex at TJ’s Roadhouse and both businesses are owned and managed by John and Mavis Jackson whose families arrived in the Tibooburra area back in the 1880’s. They are both members of six generation families to live in Tibooburra so for local information or advice on where to go or what to see just call into the Reception at TJ’s Roadhouse on the Southern end of the town where you will find a warm welcome, true country hospitality and a service typical of outback residents.
