Yabbie Farm Bush Camp

7 sites · RVs, Tents500 acres · Wilmington, Mount Remarkable
Come and camp on our sustainable yabbie farm! A 500-acre property that sits on an aquifer with unlimited fresh water. We have seven plus sites available for self-contained campers. You will need to be self-sufficient and leave no trace. You can pick your own spot and there is plenty of space - so you can be as secluded as you wish! All flat area Book a yabbie catching experience as an extra at checkout! $30 per person. There are lots of bird species and wildlife here, as well as sheep roaming around. You are welcome to enjoy a controlled campfire, and there is firewood available. Water available. The property is located 12kms from the township of Wilmington, a sleepy country town boasting panoramic views (both Hancock's Lookout and Horrocks Pass) and some impressive walking trails through the lower Flinders Ranges in the area. In Wilmington, you will find a pub, a general store and a variety of museums. Your hosts, Anjo and Rob live pretty much self-sufficient here - with solar power, water, vegetables, fruit, eggs, chicken meat, sheep meat, yabbies and marron. Everything is recycled, and nothing goes to waste - what we and the chickens and the sheep don’t eat will go to the compost/worm farm. The compost is reused in the veggie garden, excess eggs are boiled and fed to the yabbies and chooks and excess veggies will go to chooks, ducks and sheep. We grow carrots to feed to the yabbies. It’s a great lifestyle and we love it! Explore the views and walks around Mount Remarkable, Mount Maria and Mount Brown, as well as the amazing sunrises and sunsets and starry night sky. There is an abundance of nearby hiking and biking opportunities including Alligator Gorge. Seasonal farm produce available on request. Options available for longer stays, talk to us about that.

Shingleback Shack

1 site · RV, Tent1 acre · Port Pirie, Mount Remarkable
The Shingleback Shack is situated on a 1/4 acre costal block in Port Germein. It is only a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk to the town centre, main beach and jetty. Otherwise you can explore the stunning Southern Flinders Ranges just a 15 minute drive from the block. You can either choose to bring your own bedding and stay in the shack or bring a caravan or tent and set up camp around it. The block is off gird, but there is access to water from a sink connected to a water tank. There is also access to toilets and showers both in the Port Germein town centre or at the local truck stop the Perry's Tinman just up the road. In town you can also access a RV dump point, and water tap if additional water is required. There are also bins located at the corner of Taylor's Road and Port Germein Road or in the town centre. Please take all your waste with you. I want to acknowledge that Port Germain sits on the land of the Nukunu People, who have native title claims in the area and the Flinders Ranges sits on the land of the Adnyamathanha people. I respect all elders past and present and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded.
