APPLE Tree Creek rest area is about 7km north of Childers on the Bruce Highway. Re-opened in early 2005 for overnight stays, it replaces Isis River rest area, south of Childers ... closed because of its dangerous access from the main highway. Large level areas with nicely landscaped gardens and children's play area. Suitable for large rigs. Covered tables and benches, toilets, free electric BBQs, rubbish bins and tap water (non drinkable). TV and mobile telephone reception reasonable. Some noise from highway. Maximum stay 20 hours.
