In the heart of 'mulga country', Charleville and surrounding pastoral properties are rich in history, flora and fauna. Wander along the Charleville Heritage Trail to see some impressive examples of pioneer architecture and learn about the history of the town. The Save the Bilby Fund, at the National Parks Research Station, is worth a visit for an up close and personal experience with Australia's most famous endangered marsupial.
The Cosmos Centre provides an intimate look at our night sky, and with the outback's low residual light, there's no better place to do so. If you time your visit with the Charleville Campdraft, you'll be able to see skillful demonstrations of horse skills as riders and their horses work together to guide cattle through a timed course. Charleville also holds a rodeo, where cowboys and girls conquer their fears to ride wild and powerful beasts.
Charleville is home to south west Queensland's largest Royal Flying Doctor Service base that serves remote communities as far afield as Birdsville.
