Excellent visitors centre with the added interesting museum: well worth a look around. I, in particular, also enjoyed the short walk outside to an adjacent vantage point where wonderful 360 degree views of Cloncurry and nearby vicinity can be gained. Recommend.

They have some interesting static displays around the grounds - the entrance fee into the museum seemed a little steep for something I could learn online - although we were short of time anyhow but probably would've paid had time allowed.

Was very impressed with the video of the town and surroundings followed by the wonder through the museum today. The museum provides a very comprehensive snapshot of the history not only in Cloncurry but Mary Kathleen and surrounds. Well priced and ver informative. Recommend.

I think entry was free. The gardens surrounding the park are lovely. Can't tell you about dogs - don't remember seeing any "no dogs" signs, but not sure. Sorry.
