There are a few around. They might come out. :grin:

For info on good camping around SA try this publication if you haven't got it yet.
http://www.caravanandcampingsa.com.au/page.asp?parentid=61

Also try this site.
http://www.southaustralia.com/

I have to say SA is good at promoting itself for the outdoors. Made a big effort at the Brisbane Camping Show.

Hey fedaykin,

Welcome to the forum. I would say there are a few youngins on the site a bit of a mixed bag really I think. Funny enough I think there is more girls then guys which is a bit surprising really. But always great to have a cross section of personalities and points of view.

thanks heaps for the handy links.


and yes. we are spoiled in terms of choices. lots of variety in very close range 8)

i haven't gone camping 'cept for school camps as a kid.

so i'm thinking just a little weekend camp to deep creek is probably the best bet to begin with. (its only an hour away) and has many walking trails to discover.

:grin:

so close enough to be escapable. and far enough to remove city sounds and pollution.

Camping Spots

Postby itchyant-senior » Sun Nov 04, 2007 6:55 am

I went through parts od South Oz during 2001 on the way to the Simpson.
Some great spots we overnighted at included Farina (lots of bird watching and the afghan gravesites), Mount Chambers George near Leigh Creek (Bushwalking), Coward Springs (birdwatching and a nice therapeutic spa), William Creek (watering hole and a flight over Lake Ayer), overnight on Peake River (birdwatching), Mount Dare (top location) then on to Purnie Bore.
South Oz has the outback for the adventurer - you only need to pick a spot and as they say - ENJOY. Be adventurous
