Whilst this area is technically a Rest Area, the Department of Transport has permitted the use of this particular Rest Area for Overnight Stays. Time limits do apply and are stipulated in our features below, but there should also be signs available on site to indicate this.
Rules on the length of stay at rest areas vary between controlling authorities.
Caravans and motorhomes are not considered heavy vehicles, and should not stop at heavy vehicle locations.
HOW TO GET THERE

FEES & BOOKINGS
There is no charge for the use of this facility, so if you are staying at this site we encourage you to help keep it clean and tidy.
There are toilets and water at this location with a tap available to fill tanks.
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, unless clearly indicated. Those needing facilities for an extended stay are encouraged to look for camping areas or caravan parks in towns along the way.
