Agnes Creek Stuart Highway Free Camping
Agnes Creek on the Stuart Highway is one of the best free camping sites we have camped at. It’s well back off the road with loads of room and firewood. There is also abundant birdlife if that’s your thing.
We were originally going to stop in for the night at Marryat Creek Rest Area however after reading a lot of unfavourable reviews we decided against it. After spending the night free camping at Agnes Creek on the Stuart Highway and then driving past the Marryat Creek rest area the next day we are very happy we made the choice to camp at Agnes Creek instead. Marryat Creek rest area is just a roadside rest area with a fence around it and not much to look at. Marryat Creek does have drop toilets however we are self contained anyway so a toilet is not a necessity for us.
