Claude Wharton Weir Rest Area is a small circular rest area well away from highway noise. It has good amenities, shade and a boat ramp. Not suitable for large rigs and there is little level ground.
This spot provides good, deep water fishing where you can catch barramundi, bass, yellow belly, silver and spangled perch.

Like other free camps around Gayndah, this is for overnight camping only. Penalty for staying longer.
