A good spot for a one night stopover. Secluded and isolated with no facilities. A walking track through bush with limited views (we did not do the full track). Probably not worth the drive out there unless you are passing by in any case.
Magic spot at the start of the Gunns Bush Track. Peaceful. Only 15 mins from Waimate turn off.
Very nice, clean, and quiet wee place. Not too far off the highway, but is better than staying on the side of the highway. There were very few bugs here as well. There is absolutely nothing at this site, other than a place to park, so would recommend for one night stay.
Not too far off the main road, a beautiful small free campsite at the start of the 4.1km Gunns Bush track. We were the only overnighters. There a is no toilets or water but a lovely walk along side a beautiful creek to finish off a day of travel. If you stay make sure to leave it spotless, which just the way we found it.
Hot showers, nice kitchen and dining area, unfortunately lots of sandflies.
