Rest areas – Western Australia

Rest areas, WA, Paul Smedley

Western Australia might look big on the map, but that’s no guide to how vast this state truly is. When travelling the network of highways across Western Australia, rest areas offer a welcome chance to hop out, walk around, and sometimes even stay for the night. They might be there to break up your trip, but there’s the occasional added bonus of stunning views and epic scenery.
