Previous report is accurate for the showground, but an update on the Pub is that it serves lunch & dinner 7 days a week with breakfast also on weekends. The Pub has had freshen-up and the menu is varied including pizza and GF is available. Choice of beer garden or dining room for your meal, coffee/cake is good too and only 2 minute walk from camp

This is a nice showground in the valley surrounded by mountains. It is a nice quite town to stay at and very handy to Eungella National Park. The amenities were clean but very old. There is power and water at all sites and there are some trees that provide shade at a small number of sites. It is only a 2 minute walk to the local pub and they serve meals from Wednesday to Sunday nights. Our main concern about this park is that the cost for a powered site is $25/night (unpowered $20/night) and the nearest dump point is at Mirani (52km return trip). We thought this showground was very expensive at $25/night. It seems Mackay Council are the problem with the dump point as they think a dump point is not needed at Finch Hatton as there is one available at Mirani. The caretakers were very friendly and the grounds were well maintained. TV and phone reception were available.
