Chinchilla Weir

National Parks and Reserves

Camping is available (two nights maximum) with recently upgraded toilets, limited powered sites, BBQ and picnic facilities.

Chinchilla Weir is a concrete-faced earth-fill structure 8km south of Chinchilla and is known for the unique curved design of its wall. Located on the Condamine River, 10km south of Chinchilla, it’s a popular freshwater playground for both locals and visitors with waterskiing, canoeing, swimming and fishing (please note a fishing permit is required). Donations for camping are accepted at the Chinchilla Visitor Information Centre, and some power and barbecues are available. It is a shady, relaxing place where you can photograph a spectacular Western Downs sunset over the water and a top-rated bird-watching spot.
