Mundoo Island is a privately owned Station Stay nestled in the mouth of the Murray only 1.5 hours drive south of Adelaide. Located in the stunning Coorong, Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia, this unique property is the last farming property on the River Murray – where the river meets the sea.
The station covers a series of islands, the largest being Mundoo. This is SA site 229 in Camps 10 or find it on the Camps Australia Wide App.
This unique getaway is a working cattle and sheep station including a commercial breeding herd of Angus beef cattle, Dorper sheep and Arab bloodline stock horses. The owners allow small groups of campers to share the amazing landscape, peace and tranquillity.
This holiday destination offers bird watching (you can see where Storm Boy was filmed), a museum, old car graveyard, a minibus for photography tours, historic station tours and you can fish, kayak, go boating or swimming in the Coorong, and there are coastal walks or just relax and watch the sunset.
For the angler in the family, you can fish right from your deck chair. You’ll catch Mulloway, Salmon Trout and Coorong Mullet here.
There are no facilities, so you’ll need to be fully self-contained with porta-potties as no digging is allowed. Tents, camper trailers, caravans and RVs are all welcome, though some campsites will require 4WD access. These camps are suited to those who wish to set up camp and not drive anywhere as crossing the barrages has access restrictions.
Access to the property is via the Government operated barrages, so you have to be escorted on and off the islands. The initial access fee is $120 which includes camping at $20 per person per night up to $120 then $20 pp p/n.
I found so many beautiful images of this unique destination on their Instagram https://www.instagram.com/mundoo_island_station/ it was difficult to choose.
