Almerta Station

Farm Stay - South Australia


Almerta Station is a family owned property and a unique destination in the Flinders Ranges. We are situated on the Boolcunda Creek 20kms north of Carrieton, three and half hours north of Adelaide. The station stretches from the Carrieton-Quorn-Road as far as up to the peaks of the Mount James Ranges. There are between 5.000 and 8.000 sheep grazing on our lands and we own a Shearing and Crutching contracting business.

The Boolcunda Gum Creek runs along a grand old grid line, that was part of the ancient water ways of this country. It was part of an inland sea, which supported the aboriginal of the area, called Nukunu. Now it is a dry place that still holds the memory of that time and with the waterways being the song lines that cross this country. The song lines have anchor points which some call vortex or transition points. There is a such a point at Almerta, that is now known as the Bluff. It was a vantage point and an island in the time of the sea. The Gum Trees in the Boolcunda Creek are supplied by an underground water stream, so that they are green and healthy, even if the creek is not running during most of the year. There is a Billabong near our homestead and a large natural spring, that holds water the whole year round and is home to an abundant wealth of birds and plants.

Enjoy a stay far away from the city and other people, when you camp on one of Almerta’s campgrounds. We found 13 special spots on our property, that we want to share with you
