Evening Star

Evening Star Tourist Park is a working station and caravan park a mere nine kilometres out of Charleville, Qld and when we call in (winter 2014) it is managed by cheery Neil and Dot. The place is so good we book a second night as soon as we’re set up. It’s as neat as a pin with a real bush feel. There are spacious gravel sites and ensuite amenities surrounded by red dirt and mulga scrub. There is a licensed bar and camp kitchen that is run by Lenny the muso and his wife Annette who is the camp cook.

We arrive back at camp in time for a campfire dinner. Lenny is belting out a few numbers on the guitar and there is a huge fire pit. We meet our fellow campers and tuck into Annette’s hearty beef camp oven casserole. One of the campers is encouraged to recite some bush poetry and does a great job. Lenny belts out a few Slim Dusty songs and regales us of his shearing days as a young bloke. Lenny and Nett are from Victoria’s Western district and they spend each winter working here. What a great bunch. Check it out at http://www.eveningstar.com.au.
