Bedford Weir is on the Mackenzie River and the camping area provides free camping with hot showers, a boat ramp and excellent fishing where you can catch a feed of Barramundi or Saratoga.
Resident caretakers have regular camp gatherings to tell local stories. The facilities are fairly old and basic, but kept clean. Dump Point has been removed to Blackwater due to misuse.

The road north with connection to Capella (west) Nebo (east) is now a sealed road.

There are lovely poinciana trees providing shade and colourful blooms, attracting many variety of birdlife.

2 large tubs are provided outside the happy hour tent for empty cans, which are collected by the local Boy Scouts to raise funds.

There is now has a sealed road all the way from the junction of the Middlemount-Capella Highway.

Thanks for that info Ezza. Glad that I noticed it and was able to remove the dump point icon from the page.
