Mt Molloy

21/7/13 – we had an early night and a good sleep. There was more traffic on the road that we expected though, lots of boats being towed in and out and some people racing up the road up and back on quad bikes. Would have been ok if they let us have a go 🙂 Noise didn’t go too late.

Very heavy due, wet pack up again. Had breaky before we left this time and filled the flask with hot water to help make cuppa breaks quicker. On the road by 7.45am


Travel was a bit slower going on this leg with roadworks with traffic lights which we got stopped at everyone. Traffic is also heavier.

We arrived at the Rifle Creek Rest Area at Mt Molloy just before 5pm. The place is packed with caravans and motorhomes, we are the only trailer. Be a different story tomorrow night.

Q – Rifle Creek Rest Area

Rifle Creek Rest Area, Mt Molloy – T, B, F, BR, D, ND, OR, DP, M. Large area, lots of trees, cold shower, dump point, dogs allowed. Non drinking bore water, which was a bit dirty looking, donation requested. Very popular spot, apparently the ideal time to get here is between 11am and 2pm to get a good spot. Some areas are well off the road, get in late and you are left with sites closer to the road or uneven. 48 hrs stay but we had someone admit many stay longer. Surrounded by rainforest, nice spot, bit busy for our liking. Rating – 4.5
