We visited the Historic House on 3 separate occasions and enjoyed each one. The museum items are amazing along with the awesome knowledge and genuine outback hospitality shown to us by George and the team. Charleville's history will live on through your work...congratulations!

What a great collection of fascinating objects all telling a story of the past. $7 entry 8am-3pm. This was the original Charleville bank and bank managers house and is in its original position.

Another original pioneer home surviving as a museum. Amazing how much 'old stuff' survives, and not so far back in our history. I always visit such places as they help to grasp our grandparents lives and how fast life is changing for the present generation.

Lots of interesting stuff but too much clutter in some of the spaces. Remove some of the items and rotate them on and off display and the effect will be greatly improved.

Well worth the visit but to get the most out of it you need to spend at least 1-2 hours. We enjoyed seeing alot of items that either were used in our homes as children or used by our grandparents.
