Ravenswood is in North Queensland. Built in 1902, once a gold mining town with 5000 residents and over 30 hotels in the late 1800s, now it is just a sleepy Outback town and a nice place to stop for a night.

Traveller Janet Peters said, the publican loves visitors to partake a beer on arrival. “The kitchen is always open to purchase food. Very friendly people and locals were full of info on red claw at the dam, 115 km up the road.”

There is a playground across the road and the publican Terry boasts an “amazing” whisky bar! It is pet friendly, suitable for all rigs and tents, has mobile coverage, fireplaces, picnic tables, shade – as well as water, toilets and showers. 

It is free to park out the back, without power – do register at the bar, and patronise the hotel, as with all pub stays. Powered sites attract a small fee.
