Reviews for the Best Accommodation in Barcaldine, Qld

Below I have provided a detailed review of some of the very best accommodation options for families visiting Barcaldine.  

Midway Motel Richmond QLD

Take in views of Lake Fred Tritton at the Midway Motel Richmond. With rooms set up as either double or twin, with an extra bed available on request.  All rooms have air conditioning, a TV and a small fridge.  There is a restaurant on site and the Motel has free WiFi, with a 24-hour front desk for any assistance.

What’s to love?

Having a roadhouse on site is handy for getting quick and easy meals.

What’s not to love?

Rooms at the Midway Motel Richmond QLD are only doubles, so families will need to book two rooms which aren’t ideal, particularly for families with young children.


The Midway Motel is recommended if you’re after a modern motel near all the activities Lake Fred Tritton offers.

Lakeview Caravan Park

For outback hospitality at its finest, the friendly Lakeview Caravan Park is where it’s at! The caravan park overlooks Lake Fred Tritton and has a range of accommodation to suit all budgets.

The two bedroom villas can fit up to 4 people (there is one that can fit up to 5 people), in double and twin bedding with full kitchen facilities. The Ensuite cabins can also sleep up to 4 people in an open plan capacity with basic kitchen facilities.

Onsite, there are BBQs, a coin operated washing machine and dryer and free WiFi.

What’s to love?

Cabins at this Richmond QLD Caravan Park are self contained, which is fabulous for families wanting to cater for themselves while in town.

What’s not to love?

It’s hard to fault this Richmond Caravan Park QLD offer – it gets such great reviews.  It doesn’t have a pool though, like a couple of other properties in this guide.


For a clean and easy caravan park with spacious accommodation, Lakeview Caravan Park is worth a look.

Federal Palace Hotel

Centrally located, the Federal Palace Hotel is the hub of the Richmond community. 

With basic family rooms available and shared bathroom facilities, what the Federal Palace Hotel lacks in accommodation amenities… it makes up for with its warm family friendly atmosphere.

What’s to love?

Super room cheap rooms, perfect for families just after the most affordable option.

Mud Hut Hotel Motel Richmond QLD

The Mud Hut Hotel Motel is well renowned for its pub grub! But what about the accommodation?

It’s budget accommodation with air conditioning and ensuites, it’s not going to wow you, but it is a comfortable and affordable place to sleep, with rooms accommodating up to 3 people.

There are a couple of big drawcards, the first being the delicious pub meals, then there is the pool and finally, there is local entertainment at the bar.

What’s to love?

The Mud Hut Hotel Motel Richmond QLD is another one of the rare properties in Richmond which has a pool!  The kids will appreciate this after a day of sightseeing or travel.

What’s not to love?

The largest rooms can only accommodate up to 3 people, so larger families will have to book multiple rooms.
