Basic Rest Area. Good size meaning you can get away from the road. Quite busy for the location. Fires are allowed and locals friendly

Very nice spot next to the intersection of main roads. Lots of trees, camping tables, trash bins and taps with untreated water. Fires are permitted but there are no official fireplaces so I just dug a small hole and put stones around. Probably the safest way is to be near the water tap. Heaps of firewood around. Clean toilets and perfect "high pressure" shower - cold/not so cold. I've heard the pressure is not as good at the ladies so maybe just a hint here:) Donation box near the toilets/shower block.

A good place to stop for a night or two. There is road noise but that's only a problem if you let it to be. Toilets x 2 are cleaned and kept tidy. The shower x 1 is cold only. Worth the $2 donation for a small town, not even the big towns offer this service.

Good camp, no light in the facilities at night and cold showers.
