Where to stay in the Western Downs

Stay the night in the Western Downs choosing between sleeping under our big skies under just the cover of canvas, sleeping in the comfort of a hotel or motel bed, or settling into the creature comforts of a rural retreat or farm stay.

The Western Downs might be large in size but it’s sparsely populated, so you’re guaranteed plenty of neighbour-free camping and caravanning among its 38,000km2. With waterfront campsites and forest-clad campgrounds the Western Downs delivers more camping space than you book in a lifetime. The region’s hotel and motel offerings are vast, from villas to boutique accommodation options, and for some real creature comforts, rural retreats and farm stays.
