Burning Mountain Reserve Rest Area is a large open free overnight stop with nice shady and sunny spots, some with grass and others with gravel. Almost all of the area is sloping, so you will need your levelling chocks.
There are some nice walks to be enjoyed from this spot which has good facilities including a pagoda shelter which is marked as an information centre, but has little information.

The walk up the mountain track is well worth the effort. It is an easy 2.3km in each direction and there is a picnic table near the top.

The mountain is literally on fire. An underground coal seam has been burning slowly for about 6,000 years, the ignition point advancing at the rate of 1 metre per year.

There is wildlife aplenty along the track, with king parrots, eastern rosellas, kangaroos, wallabies, echidna and wombats making Burning Mountain their home. Early morning and late evening are the best times to meet the locals.
