Just wondering if any one has been to the Rosie River Fishing Camp in Lorella Springs Wilderness Park near Boorooloola.
If so what was the track in like?
We are thinking of heading over next week to do a bit of fishing.

Hi Daryl,
I've been to Lorella 3yrs in a row - been to the fishing camp twice - but not this year. It can be a challenging track ,80 k long, takes about 4-5 hrs.
It is worth the journey, the queenfish down there are on steroids.
There are no facilities at the camp area however.
I would advise ringing Lorella to check if the road to the fishing camp has been reopened after the wet.Enjoy the Hot Spring at the main camp.
Regards Blackie

Thanks for that.
Have been told that the road is open so will probably head there next week.
I just wonder if the area is commercially fished.

Yeah like Blackie said the Queenies are pretty good.
Its a 30km trip off the main savannah rd to the main homestead section where there are awesome hot springs,,, then the 80odd km jount down to the rosie..
Bauxite banks make some interesting slipping hehehehe... Like ball bearings..

Thanks for the replies. Went there a couple of weeks ago and had a ball. Homestead is a great place to relax and check out the local surrounds. The trek to the camp was well worth the effort, although a bit rough in places. We bent the axle on the boat trailer and part of it is still out there. We motored out to the mouth but could only manage to catch Queenies, Couta and Trevally.
A great place and plan to go back after the wet to try our luck again.
