Toompine Hotel Camping Area

Free Camping - Queensland


Please note, the hotel itself is currently closed for renovations. September 2021.

The sign at this old Cobb. & Co. staging post says it all: Toompine – the pub with no town!

Toompine is situated along the “Dowling Track”, named after legendary explorer and pastoralist Vincent Dowling.?The South Western Hotel, locally known as the Toompine Hotel is all that remains of this once bustling town, which came about due to the discovery of opal nearby in the 1860’s.

This iconic outback pub is over 120 years old and is a great place to have a beer or two and a yarn with the locals. Book into the “Toompine Terraces” for a night or two or free camp around the pub grounds. Great meals are available from the pub day and night.

Ask at the pub for directions to the best fishing spots and to the local “Cemery”, just a kilometre down the road. You can even have a round of golf on the sand green course.

Toompine is a great base from where you can fossick for Opal at Duck Creek & Sheep Station Creek Opal fossicking areas. Fossicking Licences are required and can be obtained from the Mining Registrar in Quilpie.

Here you will find toilets, showers, water, picnic tables, campfires, BBQ and pets are allowed.

Sept 2021 the hotel is currently closed for renovation. Coffee and snack food available at adjacent kiosk. Camping still available out the front some power available near tennis courts. Donation for use to aid RFDS. Will be fantastic when operational once again, owned by local family.
