Charleville is in the heart of Queensland’s ‘mulga country’. It is the largest town in the south west of the Outback region and was gazetted in 1868. In March 1888, rail transport reached Charleville. This railway created a direct link with the state capital Brisbane, this line still operates passenger services twice a week.
Cobb and Co, the famous coach company, based their largest coach making factory in Australia here in 1890. The factory was moved to Charleville because the wood used in coaches made in factories closer to the coast would split and crack in the dry, dusty conditions of Western Queensland. Qantas scheduled its first fare paying passenger service from Charleville to Cloncurry, via Longreach and Winton in1922.
The mulga country of Queensland’s outback is rich in history, flora and fauna. The Charleville Heritage Trail guides visitors through the history of the town and its heritage buildings.
The stars almost touch the end of your nose at the Cosmos Centre and Observatory where clear nights and a low horizon combine to give visitors a great night time experience. Kangaroos, emus, birds of prey and a wondrous variety of Australian native wildlife can be seen whilst travelling this area.
Visit the National Parks Research Station, home of the Save the Bilby Fund. Seasonal ‘meet the bilbies’ tours are held at the station.
