The Riverland is an amazing place to visit, full of so many surprises! The variety in the landscape, from harsh limestone plains to beautiful rolling sandhills, to the beauty of the Murry River. There is so much wildlife to see especially when it comes to bird watching! And the area is full of history! In every town you will discover many historical facts and buildings, machines etc. We even have histroy right here on our property!-ruins of an old school. Oh, do I hear you love taking your horse out for trail rides? Well, here's the perfect place for that too! At the campsite - approx 2km away from the farmhouse - you have the privilege of being surrounded by natural scrublands and habitats on the plains. See our mallee, acacias, sugar woods, grevilleas, honeyeaters, wrens, finches, kangaroos, emus & more. And don't forget the stars!! Our night sky is amazing due to very low light interference. At times, wake up to the sounds of sheep bleating and drinking from the trough a few hundred meters away. We have a central campfire area for each site and a double sink connected to river water for washing up and a large prep area on sites 1 & 2. Also on site 1 & 2, just a short walk from the camp fire is an outdoor flushing toilet with hand basin-a luxury for a station stay! Often there are things happening on the farm. Feel welcome to ask if there is anything you can be a part of to add to your holiday experience! We may be moving sheep, shearing, crutching, fencing, feeding the farm animals, milking our house goats etc. Even come for a horse ride (further info in 'Extras")! Well behaved dogs are welcome, but please discuss this with us prior to booking and they must be on a lead at all time. Sites are family friendly. Please let us know if you have children so we can accommodate the pricing. We want you to have the best camp experience! If you are camping with friends, why not do a Group Booking? You will find this if you search "Stockyard Plains Group Booking" in the search bar. Come and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and relax and unwind in quiet of our county property.

Great hosts, great camping spot
Our family loved our time at Stockyard Plains, the hosts were so lovely and the location was perfect. The camp set up is great with enough space between camps for privacy amongst the scrub, each having their own campfire set up and the flushing toilet was a huge bonus. We loved meeting Astro the pony and rest of the family, who came down to meet us. Completely agree with the 100% rating, exactly what we look for in a hipcamp. Thank you

Lovely hosts and great camping! This is a working farm with real outback scenery and sunsets. Good setup with toilet and fireplace. Quite dusty when we were there but it doesn’t detract from the arid Beaty Would recommend! Thanks Leanne and family!

Couldn't recommend enough!
We absolutely loved our time here! Not only is the property peaceful and quite there is just a specially feeling about being out there. It was lovely to watch the kids make there own fun. Our girls 9, 4 and 1 (and Dad) loved building a stick cubby like others that were around and also loved seeing the sheep wonder by! Leanne and her boys are incredible host and so welcoming! The girls loved being introduced to all the animals around the homestead and we loved hearing the history of the property. We decided to add on an extra horse ride of the girls and it was the icing on the cake for our girls.

Highly recommend!!!
Amazing views. Extremely clean, flushing toilet which you never find that far out in the bush. A area to clean your dishes. The hosts went above and beyond. Some of the kindest hosts we have come across. Highly recommend. And the stars at night were incredible!!!

Relaxed camping with our dog
We really enjoyed tent camping, with our dog, at Stockyard Plains for three nights. The campsite was very quiet with great views of the stars. We like to camp simply but, we appreciated the clean flushing toilet and the sink unit supplied by river water at the campsite. Leanne and her family were friendly and helpful and we saw kangaroos, birds of prey and rabbits on the property (in addition to the station's sheep, goats and horses). A nice campsite away from the crowds at this busy time of year.
