Driving Directions

66km east of Bauhinia, 7km west of Moura on southern side of Dawson Highway and north-eastern side of Dawson River.

The Dawson River Rest Area is located just off the Dawson Highway and on the bank of the Dawson River.
Positioned upstream of a weir, there is always plenty of water in the river at this location. Lined by majestic river gums, the Dawson provides a peaceful bush setting where you can enjoy boating and fishing or just admire the Australian bush.

Great Place to kick back for a few days, generators OK. Hot Showers $1 for 2min. Water here not great for drinking but you can fill up at the Showgrounds in Moura 7k's away. There's also a dump point in Moura.
