Eyre Highway Sign

Free historical stopover at Koonalda Homestead, South Australia

Barbel wrote into us about one unique site that has been listed with us since Camps 5!  This was our first crossing of the Nullarbor in 2008. A lot of people told us the Nullarbor is boring – quite the opposite, we found it most interesting and have crossed it 3 times since. It was also the second year we used Camps. Somebody told us about Koonalda – an old sheep station on the old Eyre Highway and we went to find it. Absolutely beautiful. It was not only a station but also a repair place and petrol station, the

Images Courtesy of Scott Tonkin A new listing for us, and a beaut little spot to sneak away to is Greenways Landing just 3 km W of Nildottie in SA.  Not far from Swan Reach and run by council, there’s plenty of room to stretch out, catch yabbies and do some fishing.  Mid Murray Council has added a toilet and gravel road, best of all it’s pet friendly and free.  All size vehicles are welcome here, but the road in can be slippery in the wet.  You’ll find a boat ramp, nice shady campsites, and a good swimming hole.  Watch
