Located 25 kilometres south-east of Port Augusta, Spear Creek Caravan Parks eastern boundary follows the summit of the ranges north from Horrocks Pass, with walking trails through deep gorges to range top views of upper Spencer Gulf.
You may meet any of the three different species of kangaroos, echidnas or 85 species of birds including wedge-tail eagles and peregrine falcons who call Spear Creek home.
The owner operators of this small tourism business are fifth generation whose families have been farmers and graziers in this district for over 130 years.
Their working sheep station abounds with history – trees scarred by Aboriginals removing boomerangs and shields and the remains of the original pastoral leaseholder’s home established in 1849. The caravan park is nestled amongst 400 year old river red gums adjacent to the ranges.
For accommodation they have available, powered and unpowered sites, spacious two bedroom bungalows each with its own courtyard and gas barbecue, motel style rooms with ensuite and limited cooking facilities.
For guests staying in their bunk style accomodation or camping in the caravan park, there is a fully equipped kitchen and dining room area.
Numerous fire rings provide the ambience of the bush.
Bush camping along the creek is available for groups large and small.
