Good roadside rest area,not too much traffic noise mainly B double trucks and caravans,usual toilets.Very popular stop.On the opposite side of the highway about 30 mtrs heading towards Broken Hill there is a huge area to camp (no facilities ) and go for a walk to actually get amongst the local flora without a barb wire fence to stop you,it also allows you to get further off the highway.This is one of the better rest areas on the silver city highway.
