    QUIET AREA OF PORT AUGUSTA

    by

    Port Augusta is a City in which a lot of cars and heavy traffic passes through, one of the reasons why we chose this park. It is a way from the main road, and on the waters edge. Good fishing just outside too! We were talking to some guests who had caught a nice size Snapper!

    Its a large park with dirt caravan sites, either powered or unpowered. We could choose our own site, this was nice, so we opted for one near the Amenties block. This block included clean showers and toilets, just a short walk away, was the laundry block with coin operated washing machines & dryers, or outside lines for drying. In this area, washing drys fairly quick.
    For those hot days, jump into the swimming pool for a cool off! For children, a playground, and for campers a TV/recreation room and camp kitchen.
    They have plenty of cabins available from cheap, small, large and more expensive and Backpacker's accommodation.
    Pets are allowed.

    The Caravan Park is a "Top Tourist Park," so if you are a member of this group, then you will receive 10% off the price of your accommodation.

    Security gates are on the Park entrance.

Travel Tips for Port Augusta

Port Augusta

by dmirebella

"Country SA"

For the uninitiated, Port Augusta is located around 400 kilometres north of Adelaide.

A quick history lesson

Pt Augusta was discovered when Matthew Flinders explored the Port Augusta area hoping to penetrate the heart of the Australian continent - to discover either a navigable river or vast inland sea. He was disappointed on both counts however.

The legendary inland sea did in fact once exist, but basically Flinders was 120 million years too late.

Having discovered no supplies of fresh water in the Port Augusta area Flinders then departed to complete his epic circumnavigation of the Australian continent and charting his name to the Australian history books..

Port Augusta has a unique geographic position - being centrally located; it makes a major service centre for travellers and freight trucks crossing to the Northern Territories as well as to Western Australia.

The freight train also crosses Pt Augusta heading towards NT and WA.

It was a very smooth ride, enhanced by the fact that I had a fabulous car

It takes approximately 4 hours to drive to Pt Augusta from Adelaide..

To get to Pt Augusta, places of interest that was passed includes Bute, Pt Wakefield,Snowtown, Redhill and Pt Pirie. However, due to the constant rain as well as I was not really sure of the route, I did not take any detours but the landscape although quite flat and arid has a certain kind of charm to it. Its hard to put the feeling into words actually. One has to be there to actually feel it.
