There are a couple of Heritage trails in Charleville which are worth doing.
The walking trail is a great way to fill in a day. The walk will take you past some wonderful old buildings, the railway station, the court house and many other interesting buildings (a total of 18 sites are on the trail).
The driving trail is also well worth a trip. This trail will take you the local meatworks, the old brewery building, the Ross & Keith Smith Landing Memorial, the Qantas plaque, and several other interesting sites outside of the town area. There are a couple of popular swimming holes included in the trail and picnic areas as well so you can make a day of it.
when we were in Charleville we chose to visit the Flying Doctor centre..This is a great little museum here with so much history of this wonderful service..stop in...see the museum...watch a movie...make a donation..people that live in isolated outback Australia really KNOW what a great service that this is ..as usually this is the only way to get much needed help..As you realise when you travel out here..
The Cosmos Centre, located right by the airport in Charleville, is a spectacular way to get an introduction to the southern sky.
For visitors who are not particularly astronomy-savvy, the centre offers a gentle introduction to the showcase objects, while going easy on the physics and cosmology that the objects represent.
With three nice Meade Schmidt-Cassegrain scopes in the facility, everyone gets time at the eyepiece. (Of course, this means that you can only really get a look at a few objects, but that's okay.)
If you're in Charleville (or even anywhere within 1000 km), this is a very worthwhile stop, both for the intellectually curious and for those who just like to gaze at beautiful sights.
There really isn't anything to see here but stop and read the plaque about the old armoury
The plaque is on Qantas Drive as you are heading to the airport.
Upon arrival in Charleville..stop at the Tourist Information Centre..very helpful staff will give you all local information on the many things to see and do and places to stay..
