Stayed here on a powered site in our caravan on our way up north and on the way back. It's ok for a night or two. Just make sure you request a site or cabin away from the main road. The road trains get very loud. The site we were on was dirt. There are some gravel sites. The amenities... More

The area can be used for one large party of divided into two cooking and eating areas. There was limited WIFI of 200Mb but was not accessible at the sites. There is a small shopping... More

How nice it was to arrive exhausted and to be greeted by an incredibly friendly, efficient receptionist. What a relief! Then to end the day on a high - big drive through site for my motorhome and wonderful, very clean bathroom. The shower was hot and fab!! Apparently the camp kitchen is one of the best around. Stay here, you... More

Always good to stay with any Big4 resorts. The Amneties where clean and spacious enough. We where lucky to get a spot to camp for the night in June 2016. Friednly Services and highly recomendable. The camp site is in good layout and one feels safe in the environment.

We had an ensuite powered site and the bathroom was very nice! New and clean and modern. The people who work there are lovely and we had no problems. The camp kitchen... More

We stayed in a powered site. The staff on arrival were very friendly and helpful. The park itself was very clean and had very good amenities. They provide a games room, although someone had let their kids go wild and didn't clean up after themselves. Was disappointed at the lack of respect shown by who ever did the mess but... More

We have stayed here some years ago and this time were pleasantly surprised how much things had improved. We stayed on a powered site. Smooth check in, gravel sites which are great for keeping the van clean and facilities were clean.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on the tip of the Spencer Gulf, Port Augusta is known as the 'Crossroads of Australia'. It is where the major inland highways from Western Australia, Northern Territory, New South Wales and Victoria converge, and offers the weary traveller a perfect stopover between vast travelling distances. Port Augusta is an excellent holiday destination with a variety of attractions, wide range of water activities, relaxing foreshore including playground and barbecue areas and extensive shopping facilities. Visit the Wadlata Outback Centre and take a walk through the "Tunnel of Time", an interpretive, interactive, three dimensional display offering a fun learning experience for the whole family. The Australian Arid Lands Botanic Gardens are located just 5 minutes drive from Port Augusta BIG4 Holiday Park and provides a fascinating insight into the Outback's plant and bird life. The Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden showcases a range of arid zone environments within an area of more than 200 hectares. From Flinders Lookout you can admire the superb views of the spectacular and ancient Flinders Ranges. At the foothills of the imposing Flinders Ranges, Port Augusta is the 'back door' to the great Australian outback, this intriguing environment where desert meets the sea, is a delight to explore. All in all Port Augusta is fabulous base for easy access to the attractions of the Flinders Ranges, Eyre Peninsula and Outback. ... more   less
