A father and son duo are facing seven drug and weapon-related charges after police allegedly found 800 marijuana plants at an Isaac coast property.

Terrence Eric Latimore and his son Daniel Eric Latimore fronted Sarina Magistrates Court on Monday over the February 17 raid at an address along Schirmers Road in Ilbilbie.

Magistrate Bronwyn Hartigan said the police search also found an ATV, quad bike, tools, generators, water pumps, water tanks and farming and gardening equipment which police alleged the Latimores used for tending the crop.

The court heard there was also a caravan used in possession of marijuana, unauthorised explosives, a shotgun and a rifle.
