boshie,
Don't know about Roper Bar, but went to the Wearyann River several years ago. Roughly 100 k's from Booroloola back toward Qld, dirt road-not too bad at the time. Paid the $50 per vehicle for as long as you want to stay at the old Manangoora homestead to the local indigenous owners. Closest fresh water was back at the Foelche River. (cross just before turn off to Manangoora) Barra went off the bite the day before we arrived (cold snap) but we caught 8 ourselves. Plenty of large Black Bream, Black Jew, Fingermark, Mangrove Jacks, Blue salmon, Crocs and heaps of Mud Crabs. We pulled our crab pots out after three days as we could not keep up eating them. Four Pro's working out of there at the time.
Keep in mind that this was 2001 and hope it helps in some way.
Cheers,
Bros.

Yep Boshie, agree with Bros here . Manangoora inlet a top spot. However cost per vehicle now $100. But you would probably find this most places now.
There will be quite a mob there from NSW end of this month. How do I know!!!
You might also need to know the cheapest cans will be at the Isa!
Good fishing, dont forget the bag limits if you are taking away.
cheers the kesh

My son-in-law and brother-in-law went fishing at Roper Bar last week-end and caught barra fishing off the bar.

Life's great and it just keeps getting better

Travelled through the area last October. Fished the Macarthur River at Booraloola and caught my first "keeper" Barra. THE spot is King Ash Bay; it has camping and some faciities (shop, fuel, etc) and great fishing and crabbing.

Bing Bong (about 50 km fm Booraloola on bitumen road on the Gulf) has a boat ramp as well which provides access to a pristine creek system.

The whole area is a fisherman's dream. We can't wait to get back there.
