Plenty of parking nice little park for the kids the train memorabilia was good for the kids to see. Staff was easy to talk to and knew a lot about Cloncurry. A must drop in spot on your way through

Great park like surroundings. Plenty of parking, will accomodate caravans etc. Toilets both inside and out. Great picnic area. A few exhibits outside before entry. Very helpful staff. Souvenirs.

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.

We have free camped a few times at the Mary Kathleen “Ghost” Town and wanted to learn more about the town. The museum in Cloncurry was very informative and well worth the visit. It also has other interesting stuff about the area.

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.
