Ailsa’s River theme this week brought back memories of camping in Matilda alongside rivers.
The Calliope river in Queensland is one of my favourite rivers and the best part, it is free. I would like to share this post I did in 2012 as I headed home on the last leg of a trip from Darwin.

How good does it get…
After 340 kilometre of steady driving and not being so lucky with the road works as I had a number of waits at one lane sections. I pulled into this idyllic free camping area. Being Saturday it already had family groups set up for the weekend, but still plenty of places left, camping is allowed on both sides of the river.
The “beware of crocodiles” sign did not put any one off, dogs and children were swimming, people out in their “tinnies” fishing others trying their luck from the bank. A group of youngsters enjoying the thrills of a jet ski, putting up sprays of water as they turned and weaved around. I sat relaxed with my coffee watching all the action.
