I enjoyed this spot. Just me here last night. The track is closed atm due to fawning so no one parking to go walk it. No toilet here but there is one at the Craigburn site 8km towards Lake Hawea township. Beautiful views and the road was very quiet at night. The stars out here with no light pollution are just incredible! There must be some roadworks due as there were large piles of gravel around, but still a good amount of space to park.



Really nice spot. We stayed 2 nights over there before and after the track. Just next to the lake. View is really beautiful. It was not really windy when we were there. Just a lot of people coming in the morning to park there for the track. We were just 3 or 4 van the 2 nights.



Lot of places, our most windy night but beautiful place. We recommend ! Insta : @les2petitsglobetrotteurs
