Take regular breaks on your journey

The online rest areas and Driver Reviver map provides information on both heavy and light vehicle rest area locations for major roads across NSW. It also provides locations and opening times for NSW Driver Reviver sites during holiday periods.

Driving tired is the second biggest killer on NSW roads after speeding, so it's important to plan to take regular breaks. If you're feeling tired, the best idea is always to pull over at a rest area and take a break.

Use the interactive map to find the nearest rest area or Driver Reviver location during holiday periods, or to find a rest area with specific amenities on your route, including rest areas accessible to heavy vehicles.
