The small Outback Queensland town of Mitchell offers a fantastic camping area at Neil Turner Weir as well as a unique Great Artesian Spa experience. Mitchell itself is located 587km west of Brisbane in the south-western part of the State.
The locals assured us that they are more than happy for travellers to stay as long as they like. After all, it brings much needed dollars to the town and local businesses.
Mitchell also offers travellers a Free Courtesy Bus, which runs a few times a day between the camp, the main street of town and the Artesian Spa. A fantastic resource for tourists!
