Description

Gil Weir, 8km south of Miles, is part of the Dogwood Creek and the primary water source for the town of Miles. After World War II, the Department of Water and Irrigation built a weir on the Dogwood Creek with the vision of establishing a soldier settlement for growing citrus. The scheme did not come to fruition and the former Murilla Shire Council was successful in purchasing the weir in 1949. Today, Gil Weir is a popular fishing spot (permit required) with serene picnic facilities among the trees.

Nice level ground surrounded by tall pine trees. Bring firewood or go collect some. Turn up anytime, no booking, no fees. Lovely & quiet. It's worth the extra 5mins drive off the main road for the peace and quite and privacy. Great little spot. There was a dozen other campers here when we arrived at 6pm and all spread out nicely, facing the lake is lovely.

Great spot, tall tree's do stop a little sun (solar). Cant park as close to the water as would like, however plenty of views to the water. A little muffled traffic noise in the distance. Plenty of room for space between others.

Beautiful spot. Right on creek and a toilet and tables as well. If you have any battery or tyre problems can't recommend the miles tyres and batteries mob more. They were fantastic and did my job straight away.
