"One of the best FREE ROADSIDE STOPS in QLD. It is about 1km from the Bruce Hwy so roadnoise is almost nil. Has toilets but no showers. Large grassy area for camping along the river. Grey nomads frequent this stop all through winter, so it can get busy this time of year so you will have to pull in early to secure river frontage. Summer time you will often be one of only a couple of camps in a 5 acre radius."

    There are 2 areas to camp here, one on the north side and one on the south side of the river on the old Bruce Hwy. Toilets are located on both sites. There is a Historic Village on the northern side with a small kiosk. Very popular. Get there early and watch where you park if it's wet. There is a 48 hour maximum but some people abused it and stay longer making it hard for other people to stay and enjoy the camp as there are limited spots.
