The town of Leigh Creek, an oasis in the desert, is nestled at the foot of the Northern Flinders Ranges and Gammon Ranges. It is situated 560km from Adelaide and 270km north of Port Augusta on highway 83. It is the last major town before the bitumen ends and is therefore an ideal stop-off point to relax, fuel up and stock up the pantry.
Less than 40km up the road youre on the dirt and its here where your adventure really begins and the outback truly is your oyster. The Simpson Desert? Arkaroola or up the famous Birdsville, Oodnadatta or Strzelecki Tracks, you decide!
Dont go rushing off too quickly though as the Leigh Creek Caravan Park makes an ideal base camp whilst visiting the many local attractions such as Wilpena Pound, Sliding Rock, Parachilna Gorge or Aroona Dam where hopefully you will catch a glimpse of the rare Yellow-footed Rock Wallaby.
On 27th September 2002 The Leigh Creek Progress Association took over the running of the park so that the tourist dollars earned could be channeled back into the park. All bookings, yard work, general maintenance, administration and cleaning is done on a voluntary basis, so please be patient if you find something not quite to the standard you might expect.
Among the many facilities in the town the Olympic sized swimming pool is a great place to cool off during the hot summer months.
For the golfers amongst you why not try your luck on our outback links, its certainly not St. Andrews but the views and wildlife truly are breathtaking even if your putting isnt!
So what are you waiting for? See you soon!
