Ampol’s Pheasants Nest site officially opens

Ampol has officially opened its flagship Pheasants Nest Service Centres, located on the Hume Highway in New South Wales.

The newly developed Pheasants Nest sites include a large food court area with both indoor and outdoor dining areas, children’s play areas, truck driver amenities, separate fuel and diesel canopies, outdoor spaces to refresh, dedicated caravan and coach parking spaces, and a fresh convenience offer.

In addition to Ampol Foodary, the site has an array of other food offerings, including Hungry Jack’s, Oporto, Oliver’s, Krispy Kreme, Boost Juice, and Durk’s Café.

Kate Thomson, Executive General Manager, Retail Australia at Ampol, said they’re striving to make our customers’ time with Ampol more efficient, comfortable, and convenient.

“Our highway redevelopment strategy is part of our mission to power better journeys, where all drivers and their passengers are able to refuel and re-energise in the comfort of our modernised facilities. 

“Our redeveloped highway sites will also set a new standard in comfort, retail convenience and wellbeing for long-haul drivers.”

The Pheasants Nest site will also feature first-of-its-kind AmpCharge electric vehicle charging hubs, with 12 charging bays across the two sites providing up to 300kW of power to serve EV drivers, as part of Ampol’s national commitment to install over 300 charging bays by the end of 2024. 

“We have taken a sustainable approach to our strategy through low carbon design and construction including the installation of renewable solar energy generation and storage and water sensitive urban design with the use of native plants and grey water reuse. 

“The Pheasants Nest sites are strategically located for commuter and long-distance traffic on one of Australia’s significant national highways, an important stop on the busy route between Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne,” said Thomson.
