Located next to FoodWorks Supermarket in the centre of Tambo, (Location halfway between The Isa and Brisbane) An oasis on a long bitumen road between Blackall and Augathella on the banks of the Barcoo River. Welcoming and Oasis are the words most often used to describe this Motel and Caravan Park in reviews and travelers advice. Managed by John and Sandra Horan and owned now by the Jones family from Munduberra, the Tambo Motel & Caravan Park welcomes travelers from many countries and many states within Australia. Comfort and relaxation are the core values of this establishment. 'Welcome' is the first sign you'll read and first words you'll hear, and "make yourself at home" is the core value. Clean, Safe and Affordable with a supermarket next door and a tavern over the road in Tiny Tambo outback Queensland.

Looking for a cabin / motel room and park a vehicle with trailer. We were shown options, but when about to make the booking they wanted to charge $135 for the room PLUS $35 to park on a caravan site offered close to the cabin. Seemed like a bad case of the bloke making the offer

I'm sorry you were not happy but we have plenty of people wanting a room and have boats or trailers and wanting to plug fridges etc into power. We have accommodated hundreds of customers in the exact same situation as you. John offered to park your boat next to the hedges at the front office and have free power but you wanted to take up a site for the sake of having your vehicle next to you in peak season. I'm sorry but John gave you a few options to try and accommodate you without it having to cost you the extra $$ but i think its only fair that if you wanted your vehicle in a certain spot on a powered camp site in peak season, we don't think its unfair that you pay for that site. What is unfair is you making an allegation that we are in it for extra money. Read our reviews and you would soon understand the kind of people we are here. Certainly not there to make the extra coin or rip anybody off. We endeavour to help any of our guests in any way we can and im very sorry you were not one of our many many happy patrons.
