Driving Directions

Proceed to waypoint on Burnett Highway, 20.5km north of Nanango. Turn north-west onto Broadwater Access road and continue approx. 700m to campground.

The access track is narrow and uneven and shows signs that it could be a challenge after wet weather. In dry conditions it is OK for lower clearance 2WD vehicles/caravans etc with care.

The Broadwater Recreational reserve is located 21km from Nanango and is a well know birdwatching area on the bank of Barker Creek. There are two separate cleared areas along the creek. Both are large areas with shade.
The second (and largest area) runs alongside an extensive stretch of water where onsite evidence suggests that fishing is a popular pastime.

Some bushcraft furniture including a bar and seating has been constructed by X-mas 2012 campers (see pic); but may not stand the test of time.

An overgrown narrow concrete strip is evident in the middle of the second clearing. Local legend is that the strip was once a cricket pitch (believe it, or not).

Barker Creek commences in the Bunya Mountains at an elevation of 591m and ends at an elevation of 290m merging with Barambah Creek below Bjelke-Peterson Dam.
