Welcome to Barcaldine Tourist and Caravan Park
Our Caravan Park is an Oasis in the west, located in Barcaldine, Central West Queesland. We offer beautiful grassy caravan sites and comfortable accommodation in our well appointed cabins.
Barcaldine, also known as the Garden City of The West, was established in November 1886. In 1891 'The Great Shearer’s Strike' took place under a large ghost gum in the center of town. This site became known as the Tree of Knowledge and led to the start of the Australian Labour Party. Unfortunately the ghost gum was poisoned in May 2006 and never recovered. Today the site houses an architecturally designed memorial, which was officially opened on the 2nd May 2009.
There is plenty to see in Barcaldine. Take a stroll along the Main street and take in the Tree of Knowledge site. Then visit the Australian Workers Heritage Centre and the Historical Museum.
The town also comes alive on the May Day long weekend every year when they have the Tree Of Knowledge Festival.
