There is a great free camping area on both sides of the river with toilet facilities and view over the river.
The river rises in the Calliope Range inland from the industrial port city of Gladstone, flows past the town of Calliope, before emptying into the Pacific Ocean just north of Gladstone. River length is 98 kilometres (61 mi), with a catchment area of 2,241 square kilometres
You can camp beside the river on the Bruce Highway entrance, or you can drive in from the Historical Village and Museum entrance and park on the top. There are many birds in this area that come to the lake in the centre
