Frances Creek Rest Area

Located 11km south of Ingham and 45km north of Rollingstone on the western side of the Bruce Highway, the Frances Creek Rest Area is a free overnight campsite that is right beside the road.

It is not a large area but the drive in drive out set up makes it an easy place to park and there are quite a few trees that provide shade making it a pleasant place to spend the night.

As it is right beside the highway, the noise from trucks passing by during the night may be an issue for light sleepers.

Facilities include:

  • Toilets
  • Water (not suitable for drinking)
  • Sheltered Picnic Tables
  • Fireplaces
  • Rubbish Bins

Dogs are ok here and there is mobile phone reception too. The maximum time limit for staying here is 20 hours.
