Absolutely beautiful stop!! The road in is great, I think it's just been widened and graded. Would be fine in 2wd van.



BBQ is not working.



The road out is atrocious. Don't attempt it with a caravan or even a motor home. Corrugations are several inches deep. The bloke at the garage said it's only 3 ks in but the sign says 6. Too rough for us, turned around in the scrub after 1.5 ks. Such a shame that roads aren't maintained so tourists can enjoy the lovely scenery this country has to offer.
