Mount Ive Station

Private Campground - South Australia


Since 1978 tourists have been offered private access to some of the most spectacular scenery in the area. Examples of exposed ancient Rhyolite columns can be easily accessed at places such as Peter’s Pillars. The view from the ridge-top track to Mt Ive is the 4-Wheel Drivers reward.

Visitors are welcome to explore private tracks to historical, geological and scenic places, along with observing station life on the 230,000 acre property. The view from the private access to the beautiful pristine Lake Gairdner, with its white salt bed nestled into the contrasting red sand and rock hills is like no other. Film producers have likened it to the “Jewel in the Crown” of locations. Many land speed records have been made on the lake. The absence of any intrusions into the landscape can reward visitors with scenery and a wilderness experience of the highest quality.
Since late 2002 the present owners of Mt Ive have been continuing to upgrade facilities and open up more of the property for visitors to enjoy their sheep station and its amazing scenery.Mt Ive Station in the heart of The Gawler Ranges has Lake Gairdner as its Northern boundary. 

This pastoral sheep station, first taken up by Price Maurice in 1864, is the only property within The Gawler Ranges with visitor facilities.

Mt Ive is a family owned sheep station situated 200km west of Pt Augusta in the Heart of the Gawler Ranges. Enjoy the scenic views and historical sites.

Accommodation varies at Mt Ive from our Stone Rooms (made up with sheets, quilts etc) and Shearers Quarters which are located next to the Communal Kitchen, Dining/Recreation room and BBQ area and our camping areas which has powered and unpowered sites with Gazebo for shade and shelter (firewood available in season).

A basic kiosk and Liquor Store are also located at Mt Ive supplying fuel, liquor and drinks and other small items. EFTPOS is available.

A BBQ area is also available to you and is a perfect way to eat outdoors at night when the weather is good.
