Coopernook Forest HQ Rest Area

A favourite amongst caravan and campervan travellers, Coopernook Forest Rest Area within Coopernook State Forest offers a free stopover and rest area for those seeking respite from highway travel.

Halfway between Taree and Kew and just off the Pacific highway, picnic facilities and toilet amenities are available within a peaceful eucalypt forest environment.

Coopernook Forest Rest Area features flat, grassy fields perfect for camping or spending the night. Free electric barbecues are available in the nearby picnic shelter area. And make sure you do the Tall Trees looped walking track, which offers the opportunity to view local birds and wildlife.

Please note this area, as for all NSW State Forests, has a maximum 4-week stay.
