Every day in the late afternoon during winter your hosts Ben and Thanh prepare the campfire at the Homestead Caravan park, located along the Landsborough Highway at Barcaldine Queensland.
At first it burns brightly and as the coals settle to a hot glow, the damper and billy tea is prepared the outback way. This has been a grand tradition at Barcaldine’s Homestead Caravan Park for more than two decades and people from all parts of Australia have enjoyed the great Aussie welcome.
It’s a great gesture of hospitality that has been passed down from owner to owner, and carries on to this day – every day from during the tourist season.
A service station is also part of the complex (fuel discount is available for park guests, StarCard welcome), there a kiosk, camp kitchen, Free BBQ’s, Free internet (wired and Wireless), coffee shop and book exchange as well

Most nights, a country music singer and a bush poet provide some entertainment, which means that from about 4:30 pm, there's about 2 hours of entertainment laid on for the guests!
Park owners Ben and Thanh also offer the occasional sausage sizzle or camp oven stews.
