    We stayed here overnight in early July 2016. The rest area is all bitumen and all facilities were well maintained and in good order. Has M/F/unisex/disabled toilets (4) showers. The rest area is close to the main road and has a truck parking bay on opposite side of the main road. The road was not busy overnight although two or three large road trains stopped and rested across the road for various times without disturbing anyone.
