Waterside at Redbank Park, Jericho Queensland

Redbank Park was a donation site but is now $6 per vehicle per night, using an honesty system. If you love fishing or birdwatching, kayaking, canoeing and being waterside, then it is for you.

The pet friendly site has toilets and cold showers, BBQ, fire pits, picnic tables and playground. It is suitable for all types of camping, including Big Rigs. Mobile coverage is available, and the time limit is 48 hours. You need to collect your grey water, if you are within 50 metres of the riverbank.

We checked it out on our Outback Queensland trip last year – swimming and walking are also popular along the Jordan River. A big thanks to Barcaldine Regional Council for providing a terrific site. 

It’s a great town to visit, right on the Capricorn Highway! This route stretches 575 km from Rockhampton (or Rocky) to Barcaldine, and Jericho is a great stop off.

What to see and do?

Jericho has the crystal trumpeters, telling the story of how Joshua won the battle of Jericho, in the main street.

Boasting the smallest drive-in theatre in Australia, you’ll have to time your trip – as it opens once a month!

The Tourist Information Centre is just across the road from the pub.

You can also find all these sites on the Camps Australia Wide App.

Other Jericho camping sites include the showgrounds and the Jordan Valley Hotel.
