Bush Camping

Bush camping is available along the large banks of the shady tree lined creeks. Just imagine being able to wake up in the morning to the sound of native birds singing in the rising sun, in the company of kangaroos innocently feeding nearby.

To keep Argadells beautiful for generations to come the number of bush camping sites has been limited. Camping is not permitted in Hannaman's Gorge because of the close proximity of the Yellow Footed Rock Wallaby habitat.

There is an amenities block located near the homestead where a small fee is charged to have a shower, with each main camp site having a well maintained bush long drop toilet.

Fallen timber is a very important part of this unique ecosystem and provides homes to many small creatures and insects. We ask you to assist us to better care for this beautiful but fragile environment of the Flinders Ranges by discouraging the collection of firewood.

Bush Camping is available on the property at a cost of $10.00 per person per night and Children under 12 years of age are free.

Access to four wheel driving tracks is an additional $50.00 per vehicle for the duration of your stay.

Arrangements to camp need to be made prior to your stay, as this is private property and certain areas are not always available. Sites are allocated on a first come first serve basis. Please ensure you book ahead to avoid disappointment.
