Hi Brad,

Camps Australia will give you a comprehensive listing. Available from the EO shop. See also the article in the box beside your post.

Cheers,

Hi Brad,

There are quite a few really good ones once you get past Southern Cross.
Just look for the signs, most have toilets and areas where you can have a fire.
Plenty of room if you like your privacy.

Cheers,
Dennis

Brad,
We usually stay at a place called Koorarawalee rest area. About 60 - 70 kms east of Southern Cross

s31 16.080
e120 01.000

Very large area with several fireplaces. Good clean drop toilets well maintained

Not much wood laying around, so if you want a roaring fire you better take your own wood or bring a chain saw

Brad how far do you intend to drive before stopping for the night?

There are a number of spots not too far of the road west of Kal where you can stop. Karalee Rocks just east of Sth Cross is not a bad stopping point either.

Hi Brad

We use the Jan Holland Priceless camps and rest area books purchased from ExplorOz bookshop, and chose a spot well off the road, however we found the toilet had been removed. It was alongside a large granite outcrop with plenty of room to spread out from other campers, and on a loop of old road around 1 km from Highway for a quiet night. It is on the south side of the highway 110 kms east of Southern Cross. We stopped there in 2007.

Boondi is another spot that has a toilet, fire rings, tables and a dam. it is 80km west of Coolgardie and signposted on highway.
If the campsite Motherhen mentioned is the same as the one I'm thinking of it is an old MRD spot that is being cleaned up and removed so there is no facilities there anymore.
