The Drovers Camp commemorates the droving industry of Queensland and the Northern Territory.

The Drovers Camp was founded in Camooweal in 1997 to provide safe storage and preservation facilities for authentic artifacts, documentation, art and photographic treasures from Australia's droving industry. The museum and art gallery also contains audio-visual presentations, interactive and interpretive displays, as well as a memorial to acknowledge the contribution to Australia's cattle industry development by stockmen and stockwomen of all races. A festival is staged each year to celebrate the contribution of the drovers and their families, and to provide an opportunity for veterans of these drives to come together.
