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!

  1. I may not be drawn by the idea of camping but I can always use an artisanal spa. These days I could use waters that are said to have healing properties for the body and soul. Love that Mitchell also offers a courtesy shuttle into town.

  2. Now that’s how you would get me camping again, with a promise of a spa experience! I love how most of your camping places only require a donation. It’s a wonderful incentive for people to embrace camping.

  3. It looks like I will be doing a long road trip when my two children a bit older in a few years time and I hope to drive around the big island (gonna need 6-9 months me thinks). Campsites like this will be used so if they are all like the ones here in Mitchell, then I am going to be happy (especially if its super hot). The swimming pool is the appealing part and the question is, is the pool open at night. After a long days drive, I think that is the first place I be heading for before I have a cool brew.

    1. That will be an amazing family trip. If you could manage 6-9 months, you’d be well on the way to doing a lap. Not all campsites are like the one in Mitchell, but there are plenty like it along the way. It looks like the pool closes at 6pm at the moment.

  4. I have not spent much time inland from the Australian coasts but this area does look inviting. I am a fan of naturally heated spas (there are a lot of them here in NZ). I like that only a donation is asked for camping.
