Kirar Weir

Kirar Weir was built in 2005 on the Burnett River 8km West of Eidsvold.  

The name Kirar was given to the weir by local aboriginal group Wakka Wakka.  

Fish from the shore or just relax by the river in the peaceful surrounds.  The abundance of birdlife here makes bird watching (particularly swans) an ideal pastime.
