Free Stopover: Alwyn Francis Bridge, Queensland

Just south of Kingaroy, we’d recommend a shady, quiet campground – and beside the Stuart River (we’ve heard there may not be much water in it at the moment though). 

Alwyn Francis Bridge at Taabinga, has toilets, picnic tables, mobile phone coverage and is pet friendly. There is plenty of room for big rigs. Note the time limit of 20 hours. It is QLD site 683 in Camps 10 or find it on the Camps Australia Wide App. 

We had a lovely stop here. There is plenty of room so you don’t feel surrounded. Kumbia is only 17km away as well. 

Kingaroy is known for peanuts and the home town of Queensland’s longest serving Premier, Joh Bjelke Peterson.

Lesser known is that there is :

  • A growing wine industry in the district, well worth a look-see (and tastings).
  • The Bunya Mountains are also a beautiful place to visit, and not far away.
  • Also check out the Rail Trail to Murgon, and Kilkivan and Goomeri in the Gympie Region. Suitable for mountain bikers, bushwalkers and some sections for horse riders.
