Apart from camping in Hunter's Gorge at the Lakes, the only other "riverside camping" is at Old Cork waterhole, about 132 kms up the River from the Lakes. You could camp at the old Mayne pub, just north of Mayne River channels, its not "riverside", but there is the specatular Mayne Range there, to act as your backdrop, as the sun creeps down behind the coolibahs of the Diamantina Channels.

Old Cork hole camping site is directly behind the remains of Old Cork Homestead. Heaps of water, and yellow belly if you're lucky.

Road is currently open, though grader hasn't been sighted yet. With care, you should have few problems, as below average rainfall this year hasn't done much damage. River crossing at the Lakes has only opened this week, that's the road west to Springvale, Boulia, 'Isa etc.

BRING FLY/MOZZIE/SANDFLY STUFF - lots of it!!! Hooroo...

Thanks Bob,
Sounds like a bit of local knowledge here.
Maybe I can extend the knowledge to best baits for the yellowbell,other than the mozzies.

I don't fish much, but cornbeef or fresh meat works for some, frogs are now illegal as bait, but a grass hopper might be worth a try. Try the rocks opposite the campsite for sure place. Hooroo...
