Lake Callide is located 12 kilometres from Biloela via sealed road and approximately 90 kilometres south-west of Gladstone via the Dawson Highway.

While compact, the lake provides visitors with rewarding fishing - especially for golden perch (yellowbelly) and has in recent times been well stocked with barramundi. Red-claw is abundant and it's well worth placing (tagged) traps for a catch of the tasty crayfish. A variety of other freshwater species are available to you and anglers report good success from bank fishing though the boat ramps make this an ideal spot for to launch a boat and follow the fish with a sounder.

The lake also attracts a wide variety of birdlife and the local region includes some spectacular scenery at nearby Kroombit Tops National Park. It is a comfortable drive from the major cities of Gladstone, Rockhampton and popular costal areas.

Camping is available along the lake, which also has toilets, picnic tables and a playground.
