Stayed here a few days ago. Good spot for an overnight rest. Large area, we were the only ones there. Camped as far back from the road and we got a good night sleep.

Great spot for an overnight free camp! Not many people there last night so we had plenty of space. Looks likes you could fit quite a few people in though. We even had basic Telstra reception! Flys were annoying until the sun went down. Cute family of Magpies hanging around looking for scraps. Beautiful sunset! Would stay again. No amenities.

Lots of ants where we stayed, can hear the road but not too much traffic

Good spot. Literally on the side of the road so lots of trucks during the night. Ground really hard if youre tenting and need to put pegs in otherwise it's fine. we had tons of ants, literally on everything and they were even trying to get through the zip into the swag to have a sleep with us! The view is fantastic though over some fields and when the sun set it was beautiful. Clean, easy, but if you're not self contained there's not really anywhere to go for a wee unless you're happy for everyone to watch you :)

Plenty of level sites for all types of vans and campers. Same as many other spots on the highway.

Great spot with large camp sites for all size rigs. Telstra reception. Only amenity is Waste Bins. Road noise not an issue. Suitable for an overnighter. Plenty of trees for shade and the March Flies are pretty vicious. Ants werent an issue for us. Do recommend.
