THEODORE has a coun­cil sup­ported park at their show grounds and a free camp at the junc­tion.

Moura has the Apex Park which is run in con­junc­tion with the lo­cal fish stock­ing group and has a cour­tesy bus to and from Moura on a daily ba­sis which ben­e­fits the lo­cal econ­omy.

I have been re­quest­ing of Ba­nana Shire Coun­cil for the past two years re­gard­ing mak­ing avail­able the area be­tween the chan­nel and the care tak­ers cot­tage at the dam avail­able to self con­tained vans and mo­tor homes.

This is be­hind the wall but would then be a le­gal camp­ing op­tion.

With this and the 8 sites the coun­cil has made avail­able we can at last say it is le­gal to camp at Cal­lide Dam and take steps to ad­ver­tise in the cor­rect ar­eas and at­tract the huge grey no­mad tourist in­flux to our area.
