This large circular rest area has a couple of trees offering limited shade. Reid River rest area is on the western side of the Flinders Highway, over a slight hill that affords some buffer from the highway noise. Facilities are good.
The river itself is normally dry, so don't worry about unpacking the fishing gear. The Rest Area has been refurbished.

Great spot for an overnighter. Good toilets, cleaned daily and bins emptied. Some train noise, but these are rare. Calcium Service station with good food is 7km down the road towards Townsville
