Marla Travellers’ Rest is a sprawling roadhouse, hotel/motel, restaurant, service station, supermarket and much more – all in one place. Located on the Stuart highway since 1982, it provides a comprehensive range of facilities for travellers and locals alike. It takes it’s name from the Aboriginal word meaning kangaroo.

Situated east of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Lands in South Australia, Marla Travellers’ Rest is very much the heart of Marla. Marla is 1,082 km’s from Adelaide and 159km south of the Northern Territory border.

With it’s official population of just over 70 people, Marla is primarily a service town and it visited twice a week by the historic Great Southern Railway train, The Ghan, which now frequently passes by directly across the road from the roadhouse.

Mintabie

Only 33 km’s from Marla is the small opal mining town similar to that of Cooper Pedy and Andamooka, it’s very basic, although a great place for daytrips and to learn about the lifestyle of a rural mining community.
