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 We offer a yabbie catching experience, contact us first for availability, $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 free firewood available. Fresh 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 Flinders Ranges in the area. In Wilmington, you will find a pub, a general store, coffeeshop and a variety of museums and a dumping spot. We, 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, 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! Our farm is a great homebase to explore the Flinders. 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. If you would like to have a hands-on experience on a sustainable farm you could stay for free for 2 weeks (we can be flexible) in return for some caretaking while we visit our grandkids on Kangaroo Island. Jobs would be feeding animals, collect eggs and water vegetables. Contact us if you are interested in caretaking. Hope to meet you all.Come and camp on our sustainable yabbie farm!

Awesome place. Great hosts. The sunset is beautiful and we had a blood moon rising which was incredible. Do the yabby thing. The little one loved it.

Had a great few days at Yabbie Bush Camp - we parked our vans at the far end closest to the tree lines to watch the birds. Secluded and quiet. Incredible sunsets and clear skies for stargazing. A great base for hiking Alligator Gorge

Loved camping here with our bathtub. Yabbies cooked over fire were a special treat. Hosts very friendly.

Enjoyed our stay. Quiet bush camp spot, was great being able to have a fire and watch the sunset. Roughly 10mins out from Wilmington and easy to find.

Our little family loved staying at this beautiful property. Cooking at sunrise and sunset was magnificent, but the highlight for us was meeting Rob & Anjo while they cooked up fresh yabbies. We also bought some of their oranges straight off the tree and they were delicious! Thanks for having us!
