A GREAT WINTER CAMPING SPOT ! Gum Gully was the name of the gully where the original settlers met for local church worship under a large gum tree. This campsite is located Eastern Adelaide hills & adjacent to Lavender Federation Trail. Kangaroos can be seen at sunrise & at dusk.

Site 2 - Echidna Place
The most peaceful place. We were lucky enough to have the whole place to ourselves. We had perfect weather as well. We would have liked to stay longer.

Site 1 - Lorikeet Plains
Camping areas well setup with clear signs and amazing support from the hosts. The hiking track we well marked and a great adventure for my son. No light pollution gives you a great view of the night sky. Rob advises and can confirm No Telstra coverage

Site 1 - Lorikeet Plains
Good chilled out spot, nice and relaxed but still close enough to some cool little towns. Will stay again if in the area

Mixed Feelings
Overall the campsites are nicely spread out so you don’t feel like you’re next to people. If you were in a large group it would be great to book out the whole place. The signage was super helpful and it was easy to find everything. We were in campsite 2, unfortunately there was no shade. Under the one gym tree in our site, there was stinging nettle as “grass”, so we weren’t able to use that area. Both ourselves and our dog were covered in bindis, and had rashes from the nettles. Because of how dry everything is at the moment, there was only crunch dead grass and dirt. Apart from site 1 & 2, the other sites had a good amount of shade. Although it was peak time for Easter, we found that $72 was a little steep for what we had (however this is personal opinion)
