Located on the banks of the mighty Maranoa River, the Major Mitchell Caravan Park is well-known for its warm hospitality, entertainment and pleasant surroundings -- Australia-wide.
Travellers of all types and ages stay at the caravan park, bringing with them a wealth of talents and interests to share.
At present, visitors sit around a central campfire -- in the late afternoon -- and are entertained with bush poetry and stories, and tunes played using a gum leaf as the instrument.
At other times there's singing with a guitar, keyboard or piano accordion to accompany the voices. Camp oven dinners and pancake breakfasts are organised for the peak of the tourist season.
In a recent survey of travellers, the Major Mitchell Caravan Park was voted number 14 out of 70 caravan parks state-wide.
A modern camp kitchen, and park-like trees and lawns add to the caravan park's appeal.
You can take a leisurely walk to the Great Artesian Spa and Mitchell's shopping centre that takes only five minutes. Majestic river red gums, a foot bridge over the river, murals and a well-maintained pathway make this a popular walk.
People who enjoy fishing can 'throw in a line' either from the foot bridge or the banks of the river, and catch a yellowbelly or two for dinner.
All in all, and from personal experience, the Major Mitchell Caravan Park is one of the very best we've ever stayed in (the ensuite sites in particular) -- and over the years, we sampled a lot.
