Keep reading below for everything you need to know about staying at the Explorers, Thargomindah Caravan Park.


Located at 88 Dowling Street, Thargomindah, the Park is expansive on 11 acres and is just 100 metres from the centre of town and 350 metres from the banks of the Bulloo River.  Its location is perfect for exploring all of the town’s attractions on foot.  You can park up and walk everywhere from here which I just love.

Accommodation Options

No matter what sort of traveller you are – there is a range of excellent accommodation options and sites to suit your needs.

Cunnamulla Tourist Park has a range of self contained modern suites as well as budget style rooms.

During our recent stay, we stayed in one of the modern suites, which was extremely comfortable.  These suites include a queen size bed, private bathroom, dining table, verandah with outdoor furniture and a fully equipped kitchen.  There is even an undercover car park for each suite.

The modern suites are grouped in twos and are interconnecting so great for families.

There are also more budget style rooms available, which are within close proximity to the amenities – so perfect for preparing your own meals in the camp kitchen.

Camp and Caravan Sites

Explorers - Thargomindah Caravan Park

Explorers offer both powered and unpowered sites.  Powered sites (main image) are set up close to the amenities amongst shady trees and shrubs.  Unpowered sites (see above) are further away from the facilities, on the riverside and are in a typical outback setting of red dust.

The sites, particularly the unpowered sites, are very spacious so plenty of room even for the biggest rig!

Facilities at Explorers Caravan Park

Explorers Caravan Park Park provides a range of facilities for guests to use to ensure their stay is comfortable.

Camp Kitchen

There is just the one camp kitchen on site, but it is first class!  It is tightly sealed up with canvas to prevent all the dust from coming inside.  As you can see from the above images, there is everything you need here to prepare your meals.  Amenities include stove/oven, microwave, fridge, kettle, toaster – loads of bench space, tables and chairs and even a TV.

For those on the road for a while or having an extended stay at the caravan park, you’ll be pleased to know that there is also a laundry for guests to use.  There is a range of coin operated washing machines, dryers, iron and tubs to use.


There is one large amenity block at Explorers, both with hot showers and toilets.  While we had a self contained cabin, I did check the amenities and found them to be super spacious and clean.

Explorers Caravan Park – Our Verdict

We spent two nights at Explorers Caravan Park in one of the modern self contained cabins.  We found these cabins to be extremely spacious and just perfect for preparing our own meals for our short stay.  I was overall impressed with how friendly the staff where and how immaculate the grounds and amenities were kept.  Nothing appeared to be out of the place.

While we had everything we needed in our cabin, I did take the time to check out the various facilities around the park and found them all in great working and clean order.  As mentioned above, I was particularly impressed with despite all the red dust around the place how clean and well kept all the facilities were.
