Emerald Travel Articles

Our articles have been grouped into locations so you can better read about what there is to see and do in a town.

It's easy, start by picking a location. Each article has a link to an RvTrips' web page containing more detailed information, photos and maps.  


Emerald Cabin & Caravan Village     Read more ...

Emerald Cabin and Caravan Village is located within walking distance of the CBD. We called in to look at this park when we were travelling through Emerald on our way to Barcaldine. This looks like a lovely place to stay and is located next to the Golf Course (there is a large net constructed along the length of the park to stop any stray balls). The Golf Club has a bar and bistro which is within walking distance of the park so you can head out to enjoy a meal.

In fact we have since stayed at this caravan park on subsequent trips through Emerald on our way to visit our daughter in Mount Isa.  We have had lovely drive through sites which are off-set from the next site and large enough to stay hooked up overnight. We have met some lovely people at the Emerald Cabin and Caravan Village and spent several days exploring the area - Sapphire Gemfields, large replica of Van Gogh's Sunflower painting, Lake Maraboon, Emerald Aquatic Centre etc. We spent a lovely afternoon on our last visit cycling through the Emerald Botanical Gardens.

The sites are quite shaded and some people come back year after year for several months working in the area. We found the staff very helpful during each visit and would not hesitate to call in again on our next trip through central Queensland. 

Features include:

  • ensuite cabins - Disabled cabins
  • grassed campsites
  • amenities - very clean and some ensuite style
  • laundry
  • camping area
  • drive-through shady powered caravan sites
  • fully equipped camp kitchen with gas barbeques

Emerald Showground     Read more ...

The Emerald Showground can be found on the Capricorn Highway as you head out of west from the Emerald Botanic Gardens.  The Showground also allows caravan parking and camping for a short stay. They were charging $25 per night and they have new amenities – separate rooms for unisex showers and toilets.  Sites look to be relatively flat with plenty of space for large caravans or motor homes.

You are asked to contact the caretaker on 0428 396 448 before entering the grounds.

Nogoa Caravan Park / Emerald Tourist Park     Read more ...

We visited the Nogoa Caravan Park in Emerald a couple of years ago to have a look around.  The manager was welcoming and happy for us to take some photos. I understand that this park is now known as Emerald Tourist Park and improvements are occurring all the time.

The park has five ensuite cabins, ten standard cabins and 46 powered caravan sites. The amenities block has been recently refurbished (very clean) and they are now adding additional caravan sites. We have been told by fellow travellers that the grounds are well maintained with annex slabs and good shade. This park is pet friendly and walking distance to town. The Emerald Caravan Park has a dump point and new camp kitchen.
