For anyone touring WA by road, planning short rest stops along the way is an important part of overall trip planning.

To ensure drivers know exactly where to pull over for a break on their journey, Main Roads WA has produced a guide that details Main Roads rest areas in Western Australia.

A rest area provides drivers with a safe place to stop for a break and also offers additional facilities that may not be available at short term parking spots or information bays.

The guide contains maps of rest areas along 17 major routes across WA, the amenities available at each and the distances between rest stops.
