For families planning to stay and eager to enjoy a farm tour, we recommend setting your camper up at Charleys Creek Campgrounds, a unique experience right on Chinchilla’s doorstep. Set on 35 acres on the banks of Charley Creek, it has a beautiful bushland setting and offers a truly tranquil experience. The good news is they’re also pet friendly, so your puppy also gets to enjoy walks by the creek and sit by the campfire. The town centre is only a short stroll as is the Lions playground.
This paid campground offers toilets, showers, access to potable water, and power hook ups. Open fire pits and firewood available. There is accessibility for RVs, camper trailers, caravans and big rigs. Pull through bays available and camping in tents is also encouraged.

Forget the 24-hour plane ride to France to walk through the gardens of a French colonial-style country home, just drive to Jimbour House.
Established in 1876, this heritage-listed property in the Western Downs takes its name from Jimbour Station – a pastoral holding that once covered over 300,000 acres of land from the Bunya Mountains to Condamine. Kids can burn their energy as they explore the gardens and play hide and seek behind the huge Moreton Bay Figs, pack your picnic and book into to tick this one off your bucket list.
In recent times Jimbour’s role as a cultural centre has revived. An Amphitheatre in the grounds provides the setting for major cultural events and performances – including the biennial “Opera at Jimbour” sponsored by the State Government as part of the Queensland Music Festival.
Visitors are welcome to tour the grounds and magnificent gardens on the first and last Wednesday of the month between the hours of 10am and 4pm (last entry at 3.30pm. Bookings to be made at https://jimbour.com
