Hi All, We are off to the Chinchilla Watermelon Fest, thinking of staying at either Show Ground or Polocrosse Club Grounds, has any one stay at these camps, have had good and bad comments about the show grounds facilities for the $40.00 per nt payment. Cheers Bob K.

Bob,

Showgrounds have several toilet blocks and showers.

Polocrosse grounds have 3 toilet blocks and only 1 shower block.

The Showgrounds is closer to the action if you want to walk down to the festivities. The Melon Fest Rodeo is also on at the Showgrounds


Remember to bring some shade with you as traditionally we have 40+ degree temps during the Melon Festival.


Cheers Kev

Never known it to cost $40.00 per night at the showgrounds before.

The festival is worth the visit all the same.

Great week end at Chinchilla and the Bell Annual Show is worth a visit also.
Usually a week later which gives visitors time for a good look around.

Plenty to see around those districts, Bunya Mountains, Lake Broadwater,
Jimbour House, Condamine River and some very big forestry regions.

Have Fun Haji-Baba

Thanks Jeffrey, Normal cost is $30.00 nt, show days are $40nt, I suppose this is when they make some money, we don,t mind paying as the money will go to hopefully upgrading the grounds. Bob.k

Only if you intend to get there early to get a spot.

Council has just installed new BBQ's out there as well.

The weir is at about 65% at the moment and with this rain we are getting it may get a bit boggy in some of the camp spots around the weir.

Cheers Kev
