Comet River and Weir..Queensland

The Comet River is a river in Central Queensland which rises in the Expedition Range, north of Expedition National Park and south of Rolleston. It then flows north through Comet towards a confluence with the Nogoa River, where they both form the Mackenzie River.

The Brown River is one of a number of tributaries and the Comet River Weir is the main water storage facility on the river. In the late 1990s the river was the site for a proposed new dam, although it was never built

There is a steep track down to the river, but you can park above and walk down. The area has some beautiful trees and Coolibahs and paper barks line the river banks
