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.

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.... less
