Henty Rest Area is a small rest area wihch showcases an important piece of Australia's history, as the town where the modern grain harvester, used around the world today, was invented in 1914 by Headlie Taylor.
The rest area has a good clean accessible toilet, sheltered BBQ and picnic tables and is adjacent to the Headlie Taylor Blacksmith Shop display.

Across the road is a display of some of the early 20th century Australian farm machinery inventions.

There is limited space for vehicles in the rest area but the road provides wide safe stopping lanes on both sides, with room for large rigs.

There is a dump point across the railway line in town, 300 metres away, on the road that leads to the showground.
