Driving Directions

17.5km east of Orbost on the Princes Highway, eastbound side.

Murrungowar Rest Area will be closed from early 2016 to late 2016 for a major upgrade, including new toilets, separate areas for trucks and travellers and improved access.
VicRoads identifi ed this location as an ideal site for these improvements following consultation with key stakeholders including local freight industries and East Gippsland Shire Council.

The site is located 3-4 hours from the Latrobe Valley, has excellent mobile phone reception and is at the top of a hill which makes re-entering the highway easier, safer and more attractive to truck drivers.

Construction of the road and parking areas is scheduled to commence in early 2016 following the holiday period, at which time the existing rest area will be closed to the public. It is anticipated
that the new rest area will be opened
by late 2016.
