Barradale rest area

GPS 22 51 40 S 114 57 15 E







Situated on the banks of the Yannarie River this is now just a rest area. There was once a roadhouse here but all that remains are a few curb stones and some concrete driveways.


For anyone who has stopped here and wondered what the old roadhouse was like, below are two photos of the place taken prior to 1992 when the roadhouse was closed.


From the information we have seen, the roadhouse closed after the road was sealed and people started to bypass it. Romour is that roo-shooters used it as a base for a while until a fire burned the place out and it was not worth re-building.


Located a little way off the highway is Emu Creek Station which offers accommodation and has a campground.
