Yaamba Rest Area
Located right beside the Bruce Highway (literally) is a popular rest stop that also operates as a Driver Reviver centre during holiday periods.
It can be quite busy and because of it’s closeness to the road, can also be quite noisy but it is a good place to stop for overnight stay. The time limit at the rest stop is 24 hours.
The large sealed surface is most suitable for caravans and motorhomes but it is not unusual to see tents pitched on the gassed area between the bitumen surface and the fence that borders Joan Tierney Park which is right beside the rest area.
Facilities at the Yaamba Rest Area actaully in the park and include toilets, picnic tables, BBQ’s, rubbish bins, water tap but it is not suitable for drinking and pets are ok.
