Road trip – destination Blackall!
Home of the late, great shearing legend, Jackie Howe, Blackall is one of those places that you just can’t stay away from. Domestic travel is on the agenda and a road trip to Blackall is a must.
Blackall has plenty of space for caravans and motorhomes with three venues to choose from.
If you’re looking for something on the cheaper end of the scale, for only eight dollars per night the Barcoo River Camp is a must. On the southern side of town the naturally shady sites will surely tickle your fancy. Public showers and toilets are within walking distance and the centre of town is only a short stroll from the camp!
The Blackall Caravan Park provides guests with powered sites, a large equipped camp kitchen and free Wi-Fi. You’re more than welcome to bring your furry family members along too!
If you’re looking for something a little smaller and quieter pull up behind the Barcoo Hotel. The Hotel’s caravan park offers 12 powered grassy sites, town water and a dump point. All conveniently located behind the Barcoo Hotel in the main street of Blackall.
While you’re in Blackall, why not check out some of our local eateries? Start your day with a nice hot coffee and some breakfast from The Lodge on Hawthorn, The Drawing Board , Blackall’s House & Garden or Tina’s Coffee Shop. Great spots for lunch too. After your big day of exploration and discovery, why not end your day at one of the pubs for dinner and a few cold ales. The Barcoo Hotel and the Union Hotel both serve delicious, hearty country meals.
While all this eating and relaxing might be right up your alley, make sure you stop into the Blackall Woolscour, to see history in motion. Pop out to the Blackall Saleyards on a Thursday and experience a real-life cattle sale. Check out the People’s Sign, the Black Stump, the Aquatic Centre, the cemetery and oh so many other wonderful attractions around our town and discover why it really is Better in Blackall.
