Calliope River Camping Ground, Calliope, is accessible, and can be camped on both sides of the river. Camping on the southern side is on rocky river flats, the northern side is set high above the river on grass under the shade of large gums, good for both trailer and tent based camping.
This is a popular spot for river fishing with many large species of fish being found in the river along with prawns and crabs. A boat ramp is provided on the southern side by the weir that is foot accessible, and joins both side of the camp area.
A rather pretty spot with basic toilet facilities a short drive south of Gadstone and the best thing is that its PET FRIENDLY and FREE!
Getting there: To access the southern side of the camp ground exit the Bruce Hwy onto the Old Bruce Hwy about 1.5km south of the Calliope river bridge. Follow the old Bruce Hwy about 2km north to the southern side of the camp area.
Or about 1km after the Calliope River Bridge and turning left onto Carrara Rd at the Historical Village then left onto the Old Bruce Hwy and following it south about 1 km to the northern side of the camp area.
