Any tank water available?


The Potter Show

Spent last night here. Lovely spot with soft sandy floor. We arrived around 3pm and it was quite busy, but much busier as the night went on. Nice to be in there for sunset. Absolutely stunning to watch. Flies were around during the afternoon, but went after dark. You can have a fire. There are bbq fire pits, tables and toilets too. Bins were super full, so we took our rubbish with us to stop it flying away. Highly recommend this as a free stop.



Spent the night ..lovely spot.. get in early if you can. No Telstra reception though
