duplicate entry 12.8.2021 LS

Located approximately 4 Klms East of Quilpie, on the Diamantina Developmental Road, turn opposite Old Charleville Rd across Railway.

The lake itself is a beautiful natural expanse of water set amongst shady gum trees. Seasonally, thousands of glorious water lilies line the banks in the shallow water. This lush oasis is home to a vast array of birds and native animals, making it an ideal location to birdwatch and photograph some of Quilpie Shire’s unique wildlife. Only a ten-minute drive from Quilpie, the Lake is an ideal spot for a scenic picnic, a refreshing swim, or to watch a magnificent sunset. Visiting this beautiful, natural lake teeming with native birds makes it difficult to believe this is outback Queensland.

Please keep in mind that The Lake is on private property which is a working sheep & cattle property. Please treat this beautiful area with respect and do not drive elsewhere on the property.

The Lake offers level powered camping without the restriction of small designated sites. Our Amenities Block has flushing toilets, hand basins with soap dispensers and hot showers.

Come stay with us in our Unique outback accommodation with linen supplied and access to cooking facilities and amenities.

Enjoy our peace and quiet, and many of the wonderful local attractions around Quilpie.

Open fires are permitted but only when the weather permits. If there is a fire ban, obviously no fires are allowed. Please be aware that, due it the surroundings, you must be able to contain your own grey water when camping at The Lake. You cannot discharge over the ground!

Please remember this is a bush track so drive to the conditions. The road is suitable for caravans and camper trailers but only in good weather.

There is some mobile phone service (depending on your carrier) and television reception here.

EFTPOS available.

Dogs are welcome at this campsite but please be responsible!

Potential visitors should note that there is now a charge of $5 per person per night, collected by the nearby 'The Lake' caravan park! Still great spot, but with no facilities perhaps this rate is bit steep.
