A further 7 km past Linville there is a free camp alongside the upper reaches of the Brisbane River. I believe this camping area is on private land and there is a sign at the camping area asking campers to take their rubbish with them when they leave. We were pleased to see that campers had done the right thing which helps keep places like this open. The camping area is quite large but has only a few open sites amongst the trees. When we visited, during the January school holidays, one family camping in a camper trailer had the place to themselves. There are no facilities provided. Just past the camping area there is a causeway over the Brisbane River and this is a popular spot for swimming.
