Our Story

Virginia Park Station is a working cattle station in North Queensland, located on the Flinders Highway, just 30 kilometres North-East of the historic gold rush town of Charters Towers.


Only an hour's drive from Townsville, Virginia Park is conveniently positioned between the reef and the outback, offering visitors a true taste of country life at a stone's throw from the tropics.​


For the past 15 years, owners Rob and Sue Bennetto have proudly hosted a great number of school camps, catering for students (and teachers) of all ages. The facilities can accommodate groups of up to 70 people. With warm country hospitality and unique activities that only an outback station can provide, it is no wonder that school visitors always choose to return, year after year. ​


Virginia Park also holds several affiliations with local government and environmental research bodies, including CSIRO and the Department of Primary Industries, Fisheries and Forestry..
