What's special

Surat Weir is stocked by the Surat Fishing and Restocking Club Inc. The weir is stocked with golden perch, Murray cod and silver perch. In 2017/18 31,250 golden perch, 3,400 Murray cod and 20,833 silver perch were stocked from SIPS permit sales. The weir joined SIPS in 2016 but has previously been stocked from other funding sources.


Surat Weir is located on the Balonne River just on the north side of Surat. The weir is suitable for small vessels and paddlecraft. There is a concrete boat ramp with a pontoon on the north side of the river at the camp area. Accommodation is available at the Fishermans Park Camp Area and the Surat Cabins and Caravan Park. The Fishermans Park Camp Area has toilets and picnic tables. The Cobb and Co Changin Station in Surat is also well worth a visit.
