low cost camping – glebe weir

We don’t know about you but we love LOW COST CAMPING!!

Please don’t get us wrong, we love FREE CAMPING too, well who doesn’t?

Why do we like low cost camping? 1. you get a few more facilities and 2. you are injecting funds into the local community.

Just around the corner from our current location is a hidden little gem of low-cost camping and it is on the water. WIN WIN!

The Glebe Weir is situated between Taroom and Theodore in QLD and falls within the boundaries of Banana Shire. From Taroom you are looking at a 54km drive and about 94km if heading South from Theodore. The road is all bitumen which is great for those who don’t like heading too far off road. It is quite a scenic drive in but beware of roaming cattle as the road is unfenced.

There are plenty of sites available for tents, camper trailers and caravans. Amongst the camping areas there is quite a few places to plug into power. First in best dressed. The facilities are basic but mostly clean. There are cold showers, flushing toilets, sheltered picnic tables and BBQs. Fires are allowed when there is no fire bans but travelers must bring there own wood. All this for $7 a night per vehicle!

The camp-sites over look the Weir and the Dawson River so water based activities are a must. Kayaking along the water at dawn and dusk is a must! While the keen fisherman can take out the tinny and have a flick around. Don’t forget the yabby pots!

If you are heading this way stop in and take a look for yourself.
