The Charleville Cup is the social and racing calendar highlight of the year. It's held in November, when everyone else has their eyes on the big race in Melbourne. Flights to Charleville aren't only run by commercial airlines, the town is a significant base (including a visitor center) for the Royal Flying Doctors too.
If you're a star-gazer, you'll enjoy the Cosmos Center and Observatory, which offers tours day and night. You can see galaxies up to 17,000 light years away with the 12-inch telescopes.
