*Please only book additional campsites if you have booked Eckert's Old Place Cottage*

We are a Poll Merino sheep stud and a wheat/barley cropping farm at Emu Downs in the Mid North of SA. We have resurrected this gorgeous old workers quarters into a rustic, peaceful abode for you to enjoy.

There is a flushing external toilet and a bush shower (ie a shower bag, provided). The room with an open fire can be utilised as a kitchen/living area, and we have provided crockery, cutlery, glasses, kettles, jaffle irons and a camp oven. There is running cold rainwater into the sink. Cooking can be done on the open fire, or use the small camp gas cookers. There is also a gas BBQ with side burner in the open end room. If you are really brave, try your hand at camp oven cooking in the campfire. There is no power, only basic solar lights. Talk to me about your needs.

Campfires welcome, either bring your own firewood or I can provide for $20 a large wheel barrow load. (book as an extra) Dogs are permitted on a lead (we're a sheep farm). Heysen Trail is close by - pick up/drop off available - talk to me about this.

Beautiful, Peaceful and isolated farm. Our dogs had a ball!
The host was great at communicating with us re: bookings and directions.

It was lovely having a flushing toilet and the cottage was great for shade.
