Taroom Queensland

Marguerite Carstairs Lions Park Free Camp Taroom

As you drive to the end of Taroom, the Caltex Service station is on your left and the Pub is on the right. Opposite the Caltex Service station is the Lions Park where you can have a hot shower for $1.00 and camp overnight around the Grassy Oval and playground. Many roadworks and huge trucks also use this area for overnight parking so be prepared to be woken up at 4am by huge trucks and vehicles revving up as they get ready for the day.

Taroom  is a town in the Shire of Banana and locality split between the Shire of Banana and the Western Downs Region in Queensland, Australia. Taroom is the oldest inland town in Queensland after Ipswich https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taroom

Taroom has a rare windmill of an unusual design located on the banks of the Dawson River. The windmill was produced by the Steel Wings Company, in North Sydney between 1907 and 1911, one of only six models ever erected. The windmills comprise a steel frame and fan which turns to the wind between a bearing at the bottom and a swivel at the top, all supported by guy-wires. There is a lookout at the top of Kelman Street, known as Gilbert’s Lookout in honour of John Gilbert, a naturalist with Ludwig Leichhardt‘s 1844 expedition. There is a memorial to Gilbert at the lookout. Gilbert was killed when he was speared by an Aboriginal at the Mitchell River near Dunbar, Queensland near the Gulf of Carpentaria. The lookout offers panoramic views of the town and surrounding countryside
