Located 617 kilometres north-west of Toowoomba, Charleville is the ‘neck’ of the Outback. You’ll be in awe of the mysterious night skies that can be viewed through large telescopes at the Charleville Cosmos Centre and Observatory. The spectacular sunsets that can be enjoyed from the Warrego River (Aboriginal for ‘River of Sand’) are something to write home about.
Charleville has a place in both Australian and American history. The town is home to one of Cobb and Co’s coach factories, and was also one of the largest top secret USAAF bases throughout WWII.
Architects will be impressed by the architecture that features styles dating back to the Art Deco period of the late 20s and early 30s.
For those interested in timber and birdlife, this is your dream come true.
There are so many different types of timber native to western Queensland that grow in this region and the birds that inhabit these timberlands are just as beautiful. From birdlife to endangered species, you’ll be able to see a Bilby up close, the only Australian animal that has its own National Day.
You’ll want for nothing else in Charleville, with a range of government departments, services, shopping and coffee shops to meet every need.
