Whether you like gathering around a communal fire pit or you love farm animals you should check out Gulargambone Caravan Park. Bernadette (one of the owners) gave me a warm welcome when we checked in and invited us for happy hour that evening. What a lovely welcome!
After parking up on the large grassy site, I had a walk around and found these gorgeous farm animals. How cool to see a caravan park with animals! They also have a menagerie of birds.
Little Extras At Gulargambone Caravan Park
You have to check out the huge undercover kitchen/TV/fire pit area. This is such a good area to sit around and meet fellow travellers or see some memorabilia. David, the other owner, came and cooked us some sausage rolls for happy hour. It was interesting to hear about the local area as well as Bernadette and Davids travels.
You can see the owners have a sense of fun and that they love their park. When you see the dump point, it’s not just a dump point, but an old out back dunnie kind of dump point
A short walk away is Two Eight Two Eight, the local cafe/Information desk/gallery and craft shop. It used to be the old theatre. We had a coffee and scones before we had a walk down the main street.
One side of the street has old shops that are now closed but have been painted in the most vibrant of colours. In each store window someone has designed a tribute to what the shop once was or a fun piece of art to look at.
Corrugated galahs are all around the town as are real galahs. You will also spot some great wall and silo art.
Next to Gulargambone Caravan Park is a swimming pool for those warmer days, very handy. David & Bernadette told us they are hoping to have an Elvis festival at the park if all goes well. Fingers crossed for them.
