Forgot to say that you can stay at the Ravenshoe Railway museum caravan park for one week and is preferred that your RV is fully self contained although they do provide a grey water dump site for buckets to be emptied...no grey water on the ground. A Dump site for black water is provided in one of the adjacent streets to the park and is about 700 metres from the main street.
We camped at the Railway Museum last night (2nd July). It has about 30 or so powered sites at $15.00 per van per night and about 30 or so more unpowered sites at $10.00 per night. There are 2 toilet shower blocks (one unisex) and you are supplied a numbered passcode for the main door. The facilities are excellent and hot showers are available for a gold coin donation in secured box inside the toilet/shower blocks. The caretaker is a volunteer and the one there at present is a really good bloke. He makes a damper each afternoon/ evening for anyone who wishes to try....each day is a different one. We had damper with prunes/chocolate chips and cream...yummy. The sites are large, well organised, grassed and flat and the park is just behind the main street. You would need to get there early in busy times as park was essentially full by about 3.00pm. We had a very enjoyable time there in amongst the trains and carriages being restored. There is also a large barn open for sales of clothes, souvenirs and knick knacks. I will post photos shortly.
