Discovery Parks - Port Augusta

Caravan Park - South Australia


At the gateway to some of South Australia’s most spectacular destinations - the Flinders Ranges, outback and Spencer Gulf - is Port Augusta, just over 300 kilometres from Adelaide. Discovery Parks - Port Augusta (formerly Port Augusta Holiday Park) is the ideal holiday park to plan your great southern adventure.

It’s not every day you get to travel on a moving museum, but step on board the unique Pichi Richi Railway and you’ll understand why it’s so special. Discover local history with a tour of the iconic Royal Flying Doctor Service and Wadlata Outback Centre, where you will walk in the steps of the Aboriginal people who have lived here for 40,000 years.

Did you know that Discovery Parks - Port Augusta also manages the adjacent 47-roomed Acacia Ridge Motor Inn. If you’re visiting friends or relatives in the Flinders Ranges and Outback and need an affordable, comfortable, no-fuss place to stopover for the night, we can provide the motel-style accommodation you need. Available rooms sleep between 2 to 6 guests with in-room facilities and daily housekeeping that you would find at any hotel – free wi-fi, air conditioning, TV, basic kitchen amenities (tea/coffee facilities, refrigerator), iron, hair dryer, fresh towels. Plus, you also have shared access to laundry washer and dryer, a fully equipped gym, outdoor pool and BBQ facilities.

Great park with great staff and facilities. At 17 metres, we were provided a drive through site - a rarity in a park. The toilet block was modern, clean and showers were good.

Our site was huge. The amenities are good. We would stay here again.

This caravan park is currently undergoing modifications but this did not affect our stay. We found the reception to be very friendly and helpful, the powered sites are level but maybe a little narrow if you had an awning. The amenities are excellent, camp kitchen has all you need and is also enclosed which is great on those cool nights. Location is walking distance to town if you don’t mind a nice walk. The price for Discovery members is about $35 per night depending on number of nights stayed. Overall very nice.

Drive through site booked and supplied though they are very narrow. There is no way to put up an awning without impinging on your neighbour. Booking is essential as powered and drive through sites were all gone by 1400 on the day we arrived. Sites are sloped and where you park on you patch can make a difference between being able to get level or not. We noticed a number of caravans levelled by having their tow ball receivers centimetres from the ground. Facilities are clean and tidy and the staff are friendly and helpful. Park maintenance are also quick to deal with problems and go about their task in a friendly manner.

We loved the park! Friendly staff. Immaculate facilities and a beautiful camp kitchen, where we sat to get out of the heat! We had a swim in the lovely shaded pool and overall we had a great stay in Port Augusta. We visited the information center, which was the best I have ever seen

A gently sloping area the sites are grassed but with little shade. There is a good double camp kitchen with all the essential facilities duplicated. 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 centre down the hill from the site with a Foodland supermarket a baker a farm outlet selling fruit and vegetables and a fishing and camping store. The park was in the process of changing ownership from Aspen Parks to Discovery Parks.
