Neville Hewitt Weir Camping Area - QLD RVFT

Free Camping - Queensland


Neville Hewitt Weir was completed in 1976 and has totally changed the uses of the River.For practical purposes the Weir supplies water for the town, for properties on the local Benleith Water Scheme, for the Baralaba Golf Club, and for the town of Woorabinda. 

Properties access irrigation for hay and grain crops and cotton production, while there has also been some diversification into fruit and vegetable farming. 

Additionally it has opened up an area at the southern end of the town as a wonderful recreation playground which covers swimming, fishing, camping, skiing and boating. 

There is a concrete boat ramp and a well-established picnic area, with toilets, showers and barbecues. During the cooler months of the year, many southern ‘grey nomads’ make good use of the camping facilities and become involved in town social activities. Stays are welcome up to 7 days.

Peaceful camp. Lots of trees. Well kept picnic area with stools and and shelters Town water. $1 hot showers. Dump point nearby. Enjoyed our stay. Plenty of water in the weir. Donation appreciated.
