The Tallawang Rest Area is situated on the western side of the Castlereagh Highway 8.8km north of Tallawang and 29km north of Gulgong. The area is well paved and traffic on the Castlereagh Highway is fairly light most of the time. The rest area is in a pleasant rural setting. I could not find any signs prohibition overnight camping. However, if you do decide to stay here overnight you do so at your own risk.
