Site 1 - Lorikeet Plains
Perfectly Perfect
Perfect peace and beautiful scenery. Even though there was a large family group near to our campsite there was plenty of space so our peace and quiet was not disturbed. The campfire spot was a great place for us to spend the evening. Highly recommend this excellent spot. Rob (the host) visited before sundown to make sure everything was in order. He’s a friendly host who wanted to make our stay perfect.

We loved Rob and Jo’s joy of sharing their property and happiness to share their time during our eco tour! We were lucky enough to have the whole space to ourselves (benefit of week day escapes!) Many wonderful camp sites, beautiful trees, bird life and fabulous fire pit. We are sure to be back. Thank you for sharing your land.

Site 4 - Kangaroo Rest
What a lovely, open space. It feels so far from Adelaide, yet it's only 60mins away. We camped on a long weekend, so all sites were full, but there was still ample room for everyone to space well and truly out. Rob the owner seems keen to improve the property and camping experience, so we’re keen to revisit down the track. Not only welcoming and very accommodating, he took us on the first ever tour of his organic permaculture setup around his house. Despite being middle of winter, the short climb to the top of the hill rewarded us with spectacular sunrise views. This is also the best way to get phone signal here, as the campsites are in a valley.
