Very large dusty site with a lot of sun for solar and a bit of afternoon shade. Views of the water from high bank. Around 250m from nearest toilets and same distance to little waterfall with rockpools for a quick dip.

We drove in first without the caravan and picked this spot. Has some trees about for wind protection but still full sun for the solar. High Bank so no worries with kids and crocs. Ripped my cast net bad catching livies :(
