Boorabbin Rest Area - Mt Jackson WA

Pet Friendly

The 24 hour Rest Area is operated by Main Roads for driver fatigue management. It is well sign posted on Great Eastern Highway from the east and the west. It is situated in open eucalyptus woodland with camp fires, rubbish bins, two composting toilets and a black water dump for caravans. The toilets are maintained by volunteers from nearby Koora Retreat Centre. The site had old tips at the north of it. These legacy sites have been restored by volunteers from nearby Koora Retreat Centre and are recovering their health. A load of local mulch has been placed for any visitors to the site to volunteer and spread around the establishing local provenance seedlings. There is no water on site.

    This camp area is also known as Koorarawalyee Rest Area # 238 in Camps 7 book. It is a very extensive rest area and we have stayed here five or six times in the last few years. It has an Eco toilet block that always seems to be very well maintained and has benches, tables and some fire places. There is plenty of firewood available across the other side of the main highway and room for literally dozens of vans and big rigs. We have always enjoyed our stops here.
