Bowna Rest Area is located on Bowna Road, Albury. Bowna Road used the be the old Hume Highway which has now been replaced by the Hume Freeway. Albury is located 526km south west of Sydney. This is a very well designed rest area and I would expect it would be fairly quite as it is a reasonable distance from the Hume Freeway. Access is by sealed roads and the rest area has a good sealed surface. If you decide to stay overnight then it is as your own risk.
