Dirranbandi Caravan Park is located just north of the Queensland–NSW border in the grounds of the old Dirranbandi Convent, with the reception area located in the convent building. New owners Nikki and Scott Pulfer, took the park over in April 2019 and are constantly making improvements to the facilities as well as adding services to make campers’ stays more enjoyable.

The pet-friendly park offers both powered and unpowered camping and caravan sites. Campers sites are grassed and the caravan sites are on a gravel base. The sites are large enough for big rigs and those who are towing caravans may not even need to unhitch.

If you’re after accommodation, there are some on-site caravans available as well as single person quarters and air-conditioned ensuited cabins.All equip with reverse cycle Ac, Microwave and Tv with satellite box.

The Park has a good range of facilities, including some not often found in caravan parks. These include a book swap service, a DVD library, and if you want to go for a day or overnight trip to surrounding areas and can’t take your pet with you, Nikki and Scott even provide a dog-minding service.

Monday nights is soup night and there’s baked spuds on Wednesdays. It’s a great way to bring travellers together to socialise and exchange stories and its all complimentary to our guests.

The amenities block is always clean and well maintained and includes a bathroom for those with disabilities. The park’s laundry also has a washing machine specifically for pet bedding. There is an outdoor fire pit and a large camp kitchen equipped with fireplace, barbecue, oven, microwave, pizza oven and TV.

Dirranbandi is near Cubbie Station and other cotton farms and the town’s population nearly doubles in picking season. The town is quite well serviced for a small locality and has a hospital and medical clinic, supermarket, butcher, bakery, takeaway food store, pubs, service station and a mechanic. For a wider range of shops, St George is the nearest large town.

THINGS TO DO
Jack Dwyer Memorial Park
Located north of the caravan park beside the Balonne Minor River, this park is a good spot for a picnic, walk or a spot of fishing.

Railway Park
The narrow gauge South Western railway line used to end at Dirranbandi but now only goes as far as Thallon. Railway Park still houses some of the old railway buildings, including the 1913 station master’s home.

Centennial Walk
For an artistic representation of Dirranbandi’s history, follow this colourful mosaic walkway in Railway Street.

Culgoa Floodplain National Park
Around 165 km from Dirranbandi, this park has a diverse range of woodland vegetation as well as Aboriginal cultural sites. It’s also an ideal place for birdwatching, with more than 150 species including parrots, honeyeaters and woodswallows. Bush camping is allowed but there are no facilities.

Thallon
Thallon is one of Dirranbandi’s neighbours, about 65 km away. There are both walking and driving history trails to follow, the grain silo “Watering Hole” mural to see, or you can fish, walk or birdwatch by the Moonie River.

St George
St George is the closest large town to Dirranbandi. The Balonne River is popular for fishing and skiing. You can enjoy a picnic or barbecue on the landscaped riverbank or take a cruise along the river. For some exercise, follow either the riverbank walkway or the town’s heritage trail. An interesting route out of town is the cotton self-drive trail, which also takes in EJ Beardmore Dam, or you can take a guided cotton farm and winery tour. For a taste of local art, visit Unique Egg to see an amazing display of carved emu eggs.

Have stayed twice now. 4 days then 9 days. Owners are very friendly and most welcoming. Amenities are always spotless. Sites are all gravel but spacious and level. Camp kitchen is a great meeting place with damper provided every night. Town itself has everything except a mechanic, a masseur and rain.
