What Should You Know About Camping Around Adelaide?

Is it time for you to take the opportunity to disconnect from the busy world by exploring camping outside Adelaide? When every day is all about commuting from place to place, getting work done, and hustling to the next item on your schedule, burnout is almost inevitable. Add to that all the mental energy we devote to our devices and the Internet, and it’s no wonder so many of us are so stressed. Taking the opportunity to break away alone or with the whole family by camping in South Australia can give you the chance to recharge and get back in touch with what matters.

At Almerta Station in the Flinders Ranges, you’ll find one of the best places to embark upon outback adventures in Australia. An active grazing and shearing property with thousands of sheep, we’ve created unique bush campsites while also offering our shearers’ quarters to guests as well. Whether you want to sleep beneath the stars or enjoy a quiet retreat from the city, your adventure awaits here.

What Sets Almerta Station Apart Regarding Bush Camping in Australia?

How are we able to offer one of the best opportunities for bush camping in South Australia? It helps that our huge station property features a pristine natural landscape, where you can still encounter natural wildlife and see the stars with ease. There’s much more to what we offer, though, and we stand out in other ways too:

  • All our campsites provide unparalleled privacy. This site is not like a busy campground where you frequently run into other guests. At Almerta Station, guests at each site enjoy seclusion and the ability to interact with the land alone.
  • There are fun and inviting water features on our property, including a billabong and a natural spring that remains filled with water throughout most of the year.
  • We can accommodate campers with an advanced level of experience. With prior arrangements, we do allow camping in addition to the designated sites for those who want a true experience out in the bush.

At Almerta Station, we dedicate ourselves to ensuring our guests have the most enjoyable time possible. Whenever you have concerns, we’re here to help.
