The Charleville Botanical Reserve aims to showcase the region’s vegetation within a 2,000 hectare reserve, just 15km south of Charleville.
The 30km driving route around the reserve takes you through spinifex and mulga forest, across a gidgee swamp and over a sand ridge to the mixed floodplain with poplar box and cypress communities along the Warrego River.
There’s plenty of bird-watching to be had, although the best time to visit the Charleville Botanical Reserve is in spring, when the desert myrtle turns the landscape pink.
Things to do:
– Bird Watching
– Spinifex Walk 1.9km
– 20 and 30 km 4WD and AWD self-guided drive
– Picnic tables are located throughout the reserve
– 2WD to 1.5km, after that 4WD for the remainder 28.5km self-guided drive
– Reserve may be closed after rain.
Please ask at the Charleville Visitor Information Centre, situated in the Charleville Railway Station, for directions and road conditions and to pick up a brochure.
Please note that camping not permitted, and pets are permitted only on a leash.
