Town not worth visiting. Old, tired, nothing to do, nothing much to see. Feel sorry for any kids brought up here. $140 week. The only thing to do here is talk, visit another town or drink with the other caravaners at the fire of an evening. Usual wannabe Grey Nomad talk. Unable get Internet - getting "Limited" - But OK later in day, obviously congested. Internet OK. Showers really suck. Water is either scalding hot or freezing. Womens apparently doesn't have this problem. Amenities cleaned half-heartedly. The "roast" offered twice a week turns out to be a camp oven stew. Not bad, but not a roast. Never saw a free coffee at the 2828 information office, nor mentioned when we booked into park. A knitting and crochet workshop at the park was not mentioned, though Del would have liked to participate. Lack of information owing to park managers being away for a few days when we booked in, and lack of interest in the couple providing relief. Only plus here is the evening fire, an opportunity to talk to other caravanners. Otherwise Gulargambone is a waste of time. Hardly worth the effort learning how to pronounce it!

$20 [cash only no EFTPOS] a night at this excellent park and that includes free coffees at the Visitors Information Centre. The sites are grassed with good shade. The amenities block is old, but spotless. Damper and nibbles provided at happy hour. As we could not get to the camp kitchen the manager brought damper etc to our van! Service beyond the call of duty!

A lovely welcome as soon as we arrived and we were offered a few different sites to make our own choice. The sites are grassed, all utilities are handy to all sites and its an easy stroll into town. $20p.n., 2A powered is excellent value. Excellent DTV and ok drinking water also.

This is a great little park in a town that's trying hard to re-invent itself and attract tourists. Bernadette and David are happy to welcome you to their park and put on a campfire happy hour with free delicious damper and pizza. Every one of the caravanners was there and chatted for a few hours. We paid $20 for the night. Site was green grass with shady trees. Amenities are old but very clean with added touches like 3ply loo paper! There is a small farmyard with chooks, lambs, alpacas and turkeys! Mobile 5 bands. Visit cafe 2828 and look for the corrugated iron galahs.

This is our second visit and new owners are as good as the previous owners. Damper and pizza is made each night on the fire as a welcome to guests. Roast dinner cooked same way on Wed and Sunday nights with $10.00 per head donation for the Flying Doctors. $20.00 powered site. No slabs but all grassed sites. Some trees for the summer. Plenty of hot water and washing machine and dryer on honesty. On arrival given a ticket for buy one coffee get one free from coffee shop in main street. Can walk to shops, but unfortunately most shops have closed. Easy to stay a few nights or more. Owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Pets allowed on lead. Great value and relaxing stay. Will return.

This park has new owners, Bernadette and David, who have made many improvements. There is pizza and damper each night around the fire. The amenities and park are kept very clean and tidy. We have stayed here a number of times but this stay, 5 nights, was very enjoyable. The owners are very friendly and go that extra bit to be helpful. It is a shady, quiet and pleasant park to stay in, many campers come for one night and end up staying longer. At $20 a night it is good value.
