Camping Melrose - Kookaburra Creek Retreat

Bush Camping & Campsites

Kookaburra Creek is a Wilderness Retreat. We are proud to have our Privately Owned Sanctuary listed as a member of the Wildlife Land Trust. We offer non-powered bush camping situated along the creek bed with stunning views of Mt Remarkable.

We are also proud to say- “We never over-book!” We provide a genuine Australian bush experience with peaceful and private campsites available, all at least 50+ metres apart. We have 4 group sites catering for 3-4 camps per site, and 2 single sites.

Peaceful, secluded camping, away from the crowds, offering the ultimate family camping experience.

We wish for all our guests to enjoy a peaceful experience in the bush, therefor we ask that you leave your generators at home and respect our 10pm noise curfew.

Thriving birdlife, Kangaroos, and Wallabies (Also known as Euros), the occasional Emu and Goanna.

The campsites are a convenient short walk to the main accommodation, where the toilet and shower facility is.

We have some easy, short walking trails on our property, and our neighbouring National Park (Willowie Forest) offers a network of shared-use trails, bike riding and bush walking.

Situated 10kms north of Melrose, our family operated Retreat is set on the foothills of Mt Remarkable, in the Southern Flinders Ranges, South Australia.
