At Newman Rock there is a choice between 3 different spots to camp. Close to the road is a small circular spot with no facilities. If you venture along the dirt track for 500m there is a nice shady rest area. About 1km from the road is The Rock.
The Rock is a bush camp with only a bin and a fireplace, and little shade. But it is a beautiful spot with wonderful views, out across the scrub and including glimpses of a lake in the near distance.

The Rock is a low outcrop, not too high and contains a number of waterholes. There is also a lagoon. There are a number of tracks which provide walking and driving opportunities.

There is a little bit of mobile phone signal at the highest point.

The halfway rest area is nice and shady with plenty of room. A picnic table, fireplace and bins are provided. There is no phone signal at all here.

A very nice stop on the long journey to West Australia, or your return trip. A quiet area with a plenty of space for caravans.
