Bendemeer Rest Area is a low cost overnighter with a limit of 24 hours stay as indicated by the signs.
Located to the west of the Oxley/New England Highways and on the eastern bank of the Macdonald River. The entrance is between the highway and caravan park. The yellow drop box for payment is at the beginning of the dirt road. Approx 800m to the camp area.
There are flushing toilets.

There is a self registration station at the entrance to the camping area. Please register and pay $5 per vehicle on arrival.

Note-This is the area around the Rodeo grounds. Not the day only rest area at Memorial Park which has no camping allowed. Please do not use this area for overnight stays. It is policed.

Be aware of the sign that says "no camping beyond this point" on your left as you drive past the toilet block as you may get a visit from the Ranger asking you to move.
