Round Hill Rest Area

Round Hill Rest Area is short term fee campsite located 7km east of Broken Hill or 70km west of Little Topar on the Barrier Highway in the Broken Hill Region of Far West New South Wales.

It is a very basic rest area on the northern side of the highway that has sheltered picnic tables and a rubbish bin at the roadside and a path leads to a toilet that is set back a bit further from the roadside. There is another stopping bay on the western side of the highway a bit further south but this is a Truck Stopping Bay Only.

There is no shade here and it can be noisy at times due to it’s closeness to the road. The area is quite large and is suitable for all sized rigs. Overall it is an OK place to break your journey and have a rest. For more information contact the Broken Hill Visitor Information Centre.

There is some mobile phone service here, but it will depend on your carrier.

Dogs are welcome at this campsite but please be responsible!

The maximum time limit for staying here is less than 24 hours.
*Please obey any signs at the site regarding length of stays.

Please Note: maximum permissible stay in a rest area is not specified as motorist’s needs are different, with varying levels of fatigue, at varying times of night and day. Some may need to stop for a few hours until they are ready to continue their journey safely.

Rest areas are not designed to be camping grounds or caravan parks.

Using rest areas for multiple overnight stays as part of a planned itinerary is not in keeping with their intended purpose and reduces the availability of space for motorists needing a break before continuing on their journey.

Those needing facilities for an extended stay are encouraged to look for camping areas or caravan parks in towns along the way. (source:
