8 acres hosted by Miners H.
20 Vehicle/Tent sites
We have 8 acres of land. Rubyvale in the Gemfields Queensland. We have a Cafe, fossicking park, Sapphire Jewellery shop and underground guided sapphire tourist mine on premises. We have a pub 5 minutes up the road. We have 2 huge dams an hour away. Emerald is the closest town. 40 minutes away. Bitumen road into the property.The Gemfields was founded in the early 1800's. The Gemfields is well known for its beautiful Sapphires. Nestled in the Central West of Queensland is one of the most unique communities you’re likely to find in Australia. The Gemfields QLD is made up of Sapphire, Rubyvale, Anakie and The Willows. This little pocket of Australia is all about mining for Sapphires and you’ll really feel like you’ve stepped back in time as you explore the area. You can view the spectacular outback sunset from atop a volcanic basalt plug, enter Australia’s largest underground Sapphire Mine, or fossick for Sapphires yourself in a park, add your flip-flop to the Thong Tree, plus spot wild camels.

Great little spot out of the way
Self contained great little spot middle of nowhere, Sunday night was very quiet and peaceful, we were the only ones there. Went on the mining tour during the day and the cafe is nice.

Great potential with large open space for fully self contained camping. Staff could be friendlier. Wandering dogs from outside keep coming into camp and stirring up our dogs and leaving droppings. A lot of broken glass and rusty metal bits around, not great with kids and dogs. Mine/shop was closed during the stay so we went fossiking down the road with very friendly helpful staff.

Great little spot for an overnighter. Plenty of space, with a communal fire pit.

Great place to stay if you are self contained. Quiet at night Cafe opens at 8am and the mine tour was great. Just a short walk down the hill.

Self contained private camp site
Stayed out the back of Miners Heritage. You need to be fully self contained and cannot use their amenities at any time. They have an amazing large communal fire pit. Was very spacious, quiet and felt very safe. Also took advantage of the cafe, mining tour and fossicking a bucket of wash. The local inquisitive wallabies were super cute too. We would come back here again and can highly recommend the stay.
