People say it is free, yes and no - it is donation based. This charming site is run by vonlunteets for those staying at rest area, so please leave the donation if we want this running. The place itself is great for overnight stay to rest, flat, lots of space, quiet having in mind the highway is close.

We arrive around 6pm on high season and there were 8 other camper vans. Everything was cleaned and everyone was very respectful. The toilets were super clean and there was also a specific room for cleaning the dishes very helpful. There were some picnic areas but not bbq. The highway was very near but because there was a forest you rarely listen the cars and trucks. I recommend this free parking spot if you have been During the day in Yamba or nearby.

Very clean toilets and an extra sink to wash the dishes. Can’t really hear the highway. Much space, even for large Caravans. Complete free and based on donations
