It was the infamous Burke and Wills who first discovered the beauty of Cloncurry in 1861. Now it’s your turn. Discovery Holiday Parks – Cloncurry is the perfect place to stay while you immerse yourself in our rich local history. Our caravan park will be a welcome base during your touring holiday of the ‘Great Australia’ – so-named by the founder of Cloncurry, Ernest Henry in 1867.
Conveniently located near the town centre, this park is the ideal location from which to explore local attractions and the surrounding region. Our accommodation ranges from beautifully shaded camp or powered caravan sites to comfortable cabins. Our self-contained standard cabins sleep 4 to 5 and feature en-suite bathroom, TV, kitchenette with microwave and verandah.
You can play ‘pioneer’ in our well-appointed camp kitchen (with a little more luxury than our original explorers) and enjoy a refreshing dip in the pool to start your morning or wind down after your day of sightseeing.
With other Discovery Holiday Parks located at Mt Isa, Lake Maraboon, and Rockhampton, Queensland’s Outback and Central regions are ideal destinations for a touring holiday. There are so many things to see and do, it’s hard to know where to begin. Discover the famous Royal Flying Doctor Service at John Flynn Place Museum or see Burke and Wills memorabilia at the Mary Kathleen Memorial Park and Museum.
