Toilet seems to be out of service, and very dirty, we did not even use it. No water in had basin. Rubbish everywhere even though there are bins. This spot requires attention from council.



Nice spot to stop for a cuppa. No water in toilets so a bit smelly. Another rest spot just up the road looked quite nice and no trucks.
