Driving while fatigued is a major cause of more than 30% of all road crashes. When taking a long trip, it is important to plan ahead to ensure that you arrive safely. Most importantly, do not drive tired.
Rest areas in Western Australia are provided by Main Roads and are designed to enable you to take a short break from driving and help reduce fatigue.
The Rest Areas in this section are divided into the following sections;
Truck Bays (For Heavy Vehicle Use Only)
Road Houses / Service Centers
Please note: Rest areas are not designed to be camping grounds or caravan parks. Using rest areas for multiple overnight stays as part of a planned itinerary is not in keeping with their intended purpose. Those needing facilities for an extended stay are encouraged to look for camping areas or caravan parks in towns along the way.
