Bushy Parker Park is a great rest area to stop over for free with all the camping facilities you need. There is plenty of shade and if you feel like taking a dip there is a clean creek closeby where you can enjoy a refreshing swim. If you would prefer to hit the waves there is a patrolled swimming area closeby at Balgal Beach, another free camping site. Rollingstone is located alongside the Bruce Highway and is a popular Queensland destination for camping, swimming and picnicking. If you need a fuel top up or supplies there is also a service station and general store.
