Bendleby Ranges is an offroad getaway destination with the lot, situated on a working station in the Flinders Ranges, a cruisy three and a half hours north of Adelaide.
The remote campsites are dotted between the hills and gullies of the Bendleby Ranges, along the banks of picturesque gum tree-lined creeks.
There’s no shortage of exhilarating 4WD tracks available for visitors to traverse, with gorgeous views towards Lake Frome and Wilpena Pound.
If bushwalking’s your schtick, you’re in for a treat, with miles and miles of prime walking tracks to explore.
The Sunset Camp Kitchen is an easy stroll from the main campground and there’s affordable accommodation available in the old Shearers’ Quarters as well as in a handful of restored cottages, in case you’d prefer a roof over your head.
