This roadhouse has one of the more attractive locations in the north west. It is situated near the Fortescue River and is opposite some rock outcrops which make the area quite pretty. There used to be a camping area near the river but this has been closed in an attempt to force people to stay at the road house.


The name originates from C.S.P. Fortescue, Under Secretary of State for the Colonies in recognition of the assistance he gave to A.C. and F.T. Gregory who discovered the river in 1861.
