Paynes Find Road­house

Where the outback pathways start

Roadhouse at Great Northern Highway

Family owned and operated Paynes Find Roadhouse & Tavern is located in a remote area on the Great Northern Highway, 420 km north of Perth.

As we are one of the few independent roadhouses left, we take great pride in our hospitality and customer service.

We cook and serve homestyle food & beverages 24 hours a day, every day. You can enjoy your meal in our comfortable, restaurant-style dining room or outside in our beer garden. During the opening hours of our on-site pub, your meal is best enjoyed with a cold beverage.

Food and fuel as well as shop items are available all day and night, except for the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.

With our kids’ menu, family-friendly facilities and accommodation options, we are well prepared to welcome the whole family.

If you are looking to stay the night, there are accommodation options suited to all needs. Pitch your tent at our campground, pull up to our caravan park or sleep in one of our single, double or family-sized rooms.

Our friendly team is looking forward to hosting you!

Food & Beverages

Our kitchen offers all day breakfast as well as homestyle main meals and snacks at any time during the day and night. We have daily specials and a traditional Sunday roast every week.


Paynes Find Roadhouse and Tavern features a campground, caravan park, single / double rooms and family units.


At the moment we offer diesel and unleaded fuel in household quantities. We do not accept any fuel cards – sorry for the inconvenience. We are working on arrangements to accept fuel cards and offer diesel in larger quantities shortly. We will keep you posted.


There is a well maintained gravel airstrip close to the roadhouse. If you are getting here by plane, give us a call beforehand – we will most likely be able to pick you up from the airstrip.

Paynes Find Roadhouse is situated approx 160 kms north of Wubin and 140 kms south of Mt Magnet. It is a good place to take a spell in the 300 km leg (Wubin to Mt Magnet). In previous times the limited range of vehicles would have seen it as more essential, now the advantage of it's location is for Fatigue Management and convenience of 'stretching the legs', laying over for the night, having a meal or topping off with fuel. I admire the operators for putting in the effort they do to keep this important and historical facility operational, it would not be easy. There is heaps of parking for laying up overnight now that the highway has been realigned around the roadhouse, you now have to turn off onto a well sign posted loop to access the roadhouse. Due to the remoteness of Paynes Find you will need to hand over a CC or similar before taking on fuel as they have experienced a large number of 'drive offs'....there are always some individuals who do not care in the slightest for others.
