This is a very small area and would only fit maybe 5 or 6 small motorhomes/vans. No big open area, just the drive through road to the toilet and shelter. Go 6kms Nth to bushcamp no signage but look for dirt tracks. Drive in off the road to big open spaces with lots of shade. Get phone/internet in bush camp.
