Jessie (the owner) does a monologue every couple of nights in the shed. You will laugh. You can include dinner for $20ish. The dump point is across the road. The sites are pretty squeeze for a 6 metre van but Jessie's backing directions are good. Ilfracombe is a good dormitory spot for Longreach.

DFP. Cost was $30 per night for a powered site or $25 if you stay three nights. Large sites, many with slabs which was nice to get out of the dust. Spotless amenities. Large shed with a fire lit each night and the owners, Kathy and Jesse, were great at jokes, bush tales with a country delivery that had guests laughing so hard they had tears. Suggest you book ahead because this park was booked out every night. Not hard to see why when you compare it to the Blackall CP charging $32 and crammed in door to door.
