Every time I drive north. I almost always overnight-stay at the Gympie Six Mile Rest Area. I like the setting, the toilets and the distance from Brisbane…and if you can handle the noise from the trucks at night, it is a pleasant stay. The Caltex station before here provides a meal. I usually get petrol at Kybong which is 10 kms before Gympie, but with the new highway, it is now off track and suffering badly from a lack of trade. I called them on the phone and went back to get petrol and also a meal from the 24 hour diner which is open. I was told I could stay there overnight, but chose to return to Six mile Creek.
