Bailey Bar Caravan Park     Read more ...

Bailey Bar Caravan Park at Charleville in Queensland is a Top Tourist Park. We stayed here for several nights while visiting the area and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. We arrived Tuesday and immediately booked a ticket for the 'Lamb on a Spit Dinner' – lamb, mashed potato and steamed vegetables – followed by apple pie with custard and billy tea. You bring along your own chair, table, plate, cutlery and whatever you would like to drink. It is a great way to meet other people staying in the Park. They offer camp oven meals on various nights during the week and also have Yabby races - for a bit of fun.

This is a very popular park and some spots are a little tight but the staff will walk alongside your vehicle to the allocated site and assist with reversing the van. They have done this many times and have no problem getting the van into the correct location.

Drive-through sites are available and the park offers free WiFi.  Beautifully clean amenities - 'blokes' on one side and 'sheilas' on the other plus a dump point. Bailey Bar Caravan Park provides a fully enclosed camp kitchen (to keep away the flies), plenty of shady trees and will even allow you to bring your pet.

Cobb & Co Caravan Park     Read more ...

Cobb & Co Caravan Park is located in Ridgeway Street, Charleville, Queensland. The park has a bushland setting and is within walking distance to the shops. There seems to be plenty of shade and we saw some large rigs set up within this park - drive-through sites are available.

There are two amenities blocks, two dump points, a camp kitchen and barbeque facilities for the convenience of guests. They provide areas for coach parking as well as spots available for boats - pets are welcome on application. Cabins are also available but I understand you will need to bring your own linen.

We called by to have a look at the Cobb & Co Caravan Park and take some photos - it seems to be a in a very quiet area.

Evening Star Tourist Park     Read more ...

The Evening Star Tourist Park and camping ground is about eight kilometres from Charleville, Queensland and has been set up on Thurlby Station.  It is extremely well designed with large drive-through sites - Dot (the owner) calls them marriage saver sites (quite true). Each site is separated by a row of shrubs and they are very flat - making parking even easier. The amenities are self contained (toilet, shower and hand basin in each) which Dot says is very good for older couples travelling with one partner who is a bit shaky. I had never thought of this and was extremely impressed that these park owners were so conscious of the comfort and dignity of the older travelling couple.  

They have created a large campfire area and licensed bar where they invite everyone to come together for happy hour. The station owners also provide camp fire dinners and entertainment if you feel like a night away from cooking. Self contained cabins are available if you are not towing a van or travelling in a motor home.  

The Evening Star Tourist Park is located on a working cattle station - tours are run regularly which explain the operation of this property and allow you to look around. We loved the feel of this Tourist Park, and the friendly nature of Dot - will definitely stay here on our next visit to Charleville.
