Claude Wharton Weir

The Burnett River provides excellent recreational fishing. Claude Wharton Weir, named after a state parliamentarian of the late 1900’s who was born in Gayndah, is a small circular rest area located off the A3 Burnett Highway just north of Gayndah  well away from highway noise on the beautiful Burnett River. 

The varying waterways provide areas for some quiet canoeing around a creek, a spot of fishing and plenty of room for water skiing. 

For keen photographers, Claude Wharton Weir makes for outstanding sunset photography.

Facilities:  2 boat ramps, Picnic shelters, Barbecues, Public toilets and
Car parking.
