  • Chillagoe is located in dry savannah country, making it the perfect location for stargazing. With its expansive clear, dark skies, you’ll wonder at the spectacle of the Milky Way with its multitudes of stars.

    We have a fully equipped dome and everyone can take a closer look at planets, nebulas, and star clusters.

    Our host will take you on a guided tour of the heavens and captivate your minds and imaginations with many interesting stories and facts.

    This is a fun and educational evening for all ages.


    There is a variety of well-appointed queen and family rooms.

    Bookings are essential & can be made by calling PH: 40 947 155 between 8.00 am – 5.00 pm.

    A $50 deposit is payable upon booking to confirm your reservation.

    Please note – There are no cooking facilities in the rooms. Rooms do have a small fridge, kettle & tea/coffee-making items. If you wish to self-cater – there is a camp kitchen available. You must bring your own cutlery, plates, etc as these are not supplied in the rooms.

    There is an expansive camping ground, partly grassed with scattered trees. An amenities block and camp kitchen are available to all campers. There are also rustic “bush showers”, bush dunnies and fireplaces provided throughout the grounds.

    There is a recycling station for glass, plastic and metal containers but all other rubbish must be taken with you when you leave.

    Please note – we are not a caravan park. Our powered sites are bush camping sites that have access to power & bore water only. There are no concrete slabs.

    Bookings are essential for all camping sites & can be made by calling PH: 40 947 155

    A $35 deposit is payable at the time of booking for powered sites.

    Check-in time for camping is from midday onward.

    Check-out time is strictly 10.00 am.

    A minimum 2x night stay is required during long weekends & school holidays. A $25 deposit is payable at the time of booking for unpowered sites during these times.

    The campground is also pet friendly. Visitors are welcome to bring their pets, provided they are well-behaved, don’t disrupt other guests, and owners are prepared to clean up after them. If you are planning to spend most of your day visiting the caves and other attractions – please consider carefully before bringing your pet along. Most attractions are located within National Parks and pets are not allowed. For much of the year – it is too hot to leave your pets in the car. Rather than leaving your pet unattended for most of the day and potentially becoming distressed/noisy, please leave them at home. We do not offer dog-minding services and don’t want distressed animals causing concerns to other guests.

    For more detailed information, please visit our website regarding bookings and opening times.

    We look forward to seeing you soon at our peaceful oasis in the outback, surrounded by shady trees and visited by many native birds and animals
