Home Hill Comfort Stop - QLD RVFT

Free Camping - Queensland


The Comfort Stop is much more than just toilets. It also includes free showers, parenting facilities, two electric barbeques, sinks, large stainless steel bench, and eating areas. 

Should you arrive in Home Hill without any barbeque supplies - this is not a problem. Everything needed for a barbeque is available from nearby shops - meat, sausages, cooking oils, tongs, plates and cutlery, desserts. Want to "throw a shrimp on the barby"? Fancy ice cream and apple pie for dessert? The volunteers at the Tourist Information Centre in the old Rail Station across the road from the Stop can suggest sources of supply or you can take your time and explore our shops. 

Parking in the Service Lane is usually not a problem.  Motorhomes, caravans, campervans are allowed to stop for 48 hours in Railway Avenue at the rear of the comfort stop - in the centre of town. 

Many free camp grounds are too far away from anything to be convenient. A black water dump for RV's is nearby - all free. All they ask is that you buy your supplies in Home Hill if possible and explore Home Hill and its district. 

Bookings - No bookings to stay at Railway Avenue - first in - first choice of site. Please park carefully and thoughtfully - don't waste the available space. 

Please note to access this site: The Service Lane is one-way traffic (north only).  Zigzag entrance at the southern end of Service Lane - no entry from the North.  Must be approached from the South or Sixth Street.

Thanks to Home Hill for a really great free 48 hour rest stop! New toilet and showers block, lovely hot showers, laundry right where you park $4 wash $4 dry. Yes you are by rail line but only 1 train through at about 10pm, 1 earlier about 8pm. They do seem to cut back on speed so noise not as bad as it could be. Very busy with cars and motor home from one end of street to as far as we could see! Be early!!

Great spot for 48 hours, lovely friendly town. Does get crowded so try and arrive early.

This rest area has everything, toilets, BBQ, shower, close to dump point, shops nearby. Paved roadway with only minimal slope. However, you park between the highway and the train line, so noise is an issue and train noise reflects back from the commercial premises beside the parking area.

12/8/21 excellent 2 night stopover and much appreciated hot showers. Thanks Home Hill Shire. We restocked the pantry , filled the prescriptions,filled up the water and dumped. Enjoyed the trains and the neat, clean facilities.

Great layover for 48 hours, pubs have great food, fish n chip shop also good value

This is an excellent freebie but you need to get in early as it is very popular particularly with the backpackers. All facilities are there and shops just across the road. It can be quite noisy with highway on one side and railway on the other.

Great location to town. Amenities are great. Sadly the town seems to be dying, still good shops & eateries open. They have done a great job of this stop. Shady grass area with tables. Dump pt. The trains were very noisy overnight.

A good stop for those wanting to lay up for a few days. Trains and traffic can be inconvenient but not intolerable. Home Hill is really trying to support their town by encouraging grey nomads and we are always inclined to support those places. Certainly beats paying $30+ at a caravan park. There is a camp kitchen and showers available for general use which is a very proactive move. It does get busy and there are, as expected, lots of backpackers in wizz bangs. The town appears to be doing it tough like most small places so we are happy to do our bit by visiting the IGA, fish n chips, laundry, pub and the bakery. Well done and thank you Home Hill
