The very first European exploration of the region was done by Edmund Kennedy in the year 1847. A hotel was erected in 1865, and a town started to grow servicing the region. It was located near Gowrie’s Crossing, which was initially a permanent waterhole, currently on the modern town’s outskirts.
Gowrie Station had been situated around the crossing alongside a natural stock route, for the sheep and cattle grazing. In 1868, the town was gazatted with extremely huge streets to allow bullock teams of more than fourteen pairs to turn around with their wagons. Then, government assistant surveyor (William Alcock Tully) laid out the streets of the town. An Irishman, Tully was the one who probably named the town after Charleville, County Cork town, Ireland. The Roma-based Skinner family members established a store in the town in the year 1872 that was referred to as the Warrego Stores. The Post Office in Charleville open on 1 August 1865.
