Theldarpa Station

Private Campground - New South Wales

Favourite

Theldarpa is a 50000 ha sheep and cattle property located in the heart of the Corner Country, little more than a half hour drive west of Milparinka along the Hawker Gate Road. It is owned by the Sandow family who have lived in the area for thirty years, and is home to Sarah and David.

The homestead and accommodation places are located on the confluence of two local creek systems which meet to form the historic Yandama Creek.  In the early days of settlement in the Corner Country the creek formed part of the track from Mt Browne to the Transcontinental Railway at Farina, in South Australia and was used by Afghan camel teams as well as miners from Mt Browne. The remains of a historic wool-scour and shearing shed can still be found on the creek.

Theldarpa is known for  outback vistas that stretch for endless kilometres before meeting a red-gum or gidgee lined creek.  Sandstone mesas rise above saltbush plateaus that shimmer with reflective skies. Local  4WD is available with high clearance drives. It is a popular spot for for birdwatchers, photographers and artists, as well as bush walkers. Theldarpa is also an ideal stopover place for those traveling the loop around the Corner Country, or towards or from Innamincka.

Theldarpa's range of accommodation options will suit individual travelers, or groups.


Visitors to Theldarpa are welcome to camp alongside the Yandama Creek where they can watch native animals and birds coming in to water at dawn or at the end of the day. The showers, laundry and toilets in the nearby shearers' quarters are available for use.


The shearers' quarters are made up of a series six adjoining rooms with two single beds, and two rooms with double beds. It is preferable that visitors use their own bedding ( swags etc) although some can be supplied upon request.
