A small, level rest area 200m off highway overlooking Lake Bolac with shaded, grassed areas under a plantation of Manna Gum.

Bush camping without facilities but with more privacy is possible by following the gravelled track south-west around the lake (behind the cemetery).

One of the better rest areas (especially for the Western Plains) and an alternative to Lake reserves for overnight stops.

Rated 3.9/5
