Wauchope Rest Area, Wauchope

Date of Stay: August 2022 Rating: 2.5
This rest area is across the driveway from the Wauchope Hotel, which has a caravan park behind it. It is a daytime rest area and allotted overnight free camping area. No amenities except bins near the daytime shelter and a water tap to the north-west corner of the area, but vanners have been known to park in front of the tap blocking sight of it. Please be considerate and park rear to the fence line if possible, unless you're parking on the rest area driveway where this is not possible. As with all Stuart Hwy rest areas close to the road, traffic noise abounds but drops off markedly as night comes on. It was very busy when we were there and was full by 4 pm.
