About Charleville Graham Andrews Parklands
Whether it’s a quick stopover, or a day out with family and friends, Graham Andrews Parklands is always a great place to stop, relax and stretch your legs.
This park with its peaceful surrounds, lake, barbecues, rustic native gardens, Outback Timber Walk, adventure playground and the fascinating Vortex Gun display, has something for everyone.
Stop to feed the locals, the ducks and geese, are never too far away to say “G’day” . . . duck
Dusk and dawn are great times to take a quite moment to hear the bird song (or screech!) of the Australian native birdlife in the park. Birds often found in the park include: Galahs, Sulphur Crested Cockatoos, Red Rump Parrots and a whole variety of finches and small wrens (including the Willy Wagtail.)
A short leisurely stroll around the lake will allow you to identify and learn of 18 different species of Outback Trees. At the top end of the park learn of the desperate measures our early settlers took to break drought using the now infamous Steiger Vortex Rainmaking Guns.
