There are many lay-bys on West Australian roads, but there are also some excellent rest areas which offer tables, shelters, BBQs, bins and toilets. These are usually set well back from the road and make pleasant overnight stops if you are driving long distances.

You are permitted to stay at any designated rest area overnight if you need to rest.

Visit the Main Roads website to get more information on rest areas and you can see road and traffic conditions for different areas of the state.

Another useful resource for travellers is the National Public Toilet Map.

You can also find an extensive list of rest areas in our campsite lists.
