Spear Creek Holiday Park

1 site · RV, Tent21000 acres · Wilmington, SA
Spear Creek is more than just another Holiday Park. Set immediately adjacent to the Western slopes of the Flinders Ranges in the middle of a 21,000 acre working sheep station providing privacy, security and an experience like no other. Spear Creek is located 25 kilometres south-east of Port Augusta, only 12km off Highway 1. Our eastern boundary follows the summit of the ranges north from Horrocks Pass, with walking trails through deep gorges to range top views of upper Spencer Gulf. The Holiday park is nestled amongst 600 year old river red gums adjacent to the ranges. You may meet any of the three different species of kangaroos, echidnas, or 85 species of birds including wedge-tail eagles and peregrine falcons who call Spear Creek home. The owner operators of this tourism business are fourth generation, whose families have been farmers and graziers on this land for over 130 years.

Shingleback Shack

1 site · RV, Tent1 acre · Port Pirie, SA
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 shack fits 1 - 2 people, and is an empty 1.2m x 2.4m room. 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. 10% of profit made from this HipCamp goes to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.
