Calliope River Village Rest Area

Rest Area Day Use - Queensland

Favourite

Day rest area only. The site is quiet, scenic and has a sealed road so suitable for all vehicles.   Located on the Old Bruce Highway behind the Calliope Historical Village. There is a kiosk there that can provide basic supplies. Only non-potable water available.

This site is being loved to death with overcrowding, there are over 80 rigs on site tonight. All along the river bank is now bare dirt and inappropriate disposal of grey water is noted. However it is still an excellent site even if under stress. Rangers have been checking the site for overstayers it is reported, which is good,

Nice and quiet tonight, cool river breeze after a stinker of a day. Still my most favourite spot on the Bruce.

Toilets still closed down. No sign of any repairs. Still a great spot for self contained vehicles.

Great place to rest for a couple days, most people do the right thing. Did not see rangers over the weekend but I am sure they get around. Well done Gladstone.

This is a very popular Rest Area and can get crowded at times. There are two Rest Areas north and south side of river with entrances from different roads. It is not possible to cross the old bridge with a vehicle at this camp site. Found the site peaceful and far enough removed from the main highway. A visit to the adjoining historical village is worthwhile.
