Well I have to disagree with Joe, I travel the road from Weipa to Coen often and the burgers and fish come highly recommended. The new owners go out of their way to help everyone don't knock them until you go and meet them also have a burger.

Yea the archer burger is awesome. Whatever you do don't eat at the cafe in Coen. Many reports of food gone bad and way too expensive. Even the locals don't eat there. They all go to the pub for awesome roast meals (pork and lamb and chicken and beef). So yea archer is the best cafe on the cape. (All they need is tap beer)

Been there a couple of times from fishing trips further on and back. It is an oasis even if only to get off that corrugated road. the Staff is fantastic,provisions aplenty,Amenities like a shower after a long day, but man you got to have one of their Archer Burger that is something else.

Great hospitality, cold grog, and the best burger i've ever eaten and all halfway up the cape! And use of the workshop to do a wheel bearing change on the bike was not a problem...a must stopover for anyone doing the cape.

Thank you Archer River - we stopped there on our way to the Tip and back. Beautiful and special place. Staff were great and really friendly, nothing was too much to ask. Your mini museum/photos were great and interesting to know more about this history of the place and the people.
I loved it!

hey, im the daughter of the owners of Archer River Roadhouse. its great to hear positive feed back from customers. it makes you feel that all youve worked for has payed off.

this year at the archer weve undertaken a new project to build more amenities blocks and were hoping to get that finished by the end of the year sometime, so come up and have a look! it should be a bit better than the 1 toilett and shower that was there before...

well we plan to have another great year this year. thanks again.
