To me, those folk at the "Evening Star" are on to a great idea.
Hopefully in that area this is not a "one off" but am sure with some encouragement other property owners will follow.
Charleville, I believe, is a real gateway to the outback (from the east) and we always stop and look up a few old mates there.
Plenty of history, and a good prowl around the old Corones Hotel well worth while.
As an aside, Coronie's had a soft drink and cordial manufacturing business in Quilpie sometime in the 1880's.
My wife found one of their (empty) bottles near lake Houdraman some years ago.

I used to work out there a very long time ago. I always stop there for a bit of nostalga. Corones pub, etc etc are pretty special places for me, as are the locals.
I've stayed in a caravan park in town. Very ordinary.
I've stayed in motels...very expensive and couldn't even get drinking water in one of them. I'd forgotten what the aroma of bore water smelled like:)
Finding a decently priced place to stay o/n has proved elusive, it appears that this might be just the ticket.

I have a copy of Queensland Caravan Parks 2008 directory
The rates listed for Evening Star Tourist Park for vans are listed at $27/2 adults powered site/ night, and $16/2 adults unpowered /night.

I can`t comment on the park as I have never stayed their, but it sounds OK.
