Driving Directions

Turn north at waypoint, intersection of highway and Pine Street. Self select, hook up and set up. Caretaker will collect fees.

The Barcaldine Showground Camping Area is more expensive with less to offer than it once was and rumour has it that it is because of vested interests in the town who aren't prepared to compete, but prefer to remove any competition instead.
This un Australian behaviour has led to a decline in the number of visitors staying in Barcaldine to the detriment of the town in general.
