Accommodation along the Heysen Trail

Spread along the Heysen Trail are numerous campsites, huts and shelters. The trail passes through and near towns where there are caravan parks, hotels, motels, bed & breakfasts and self-contained holiday houses.

Camping on the Heysen Trail

camping-on-the-heysen-trail-IMG_5370Huts vary from either stone or timber settler’s cottages and old public buildings. Water is available at most, but not all, campsites and huts. Specific detailed information about each campsite, shelter and hut is available below. Most of the huts are basic, offering only a small sleeping shelter with a rainwater tank. Walkers should aim to be self-reliant. The huts incorporate facilities such as a rainwater tank, simple bunks, toilet, fireplace, tables and seats.

Many of the shelters are primarily constructed to capture rainwater rather than provide sufficient space to sleep – these are noted as small shelters. Medium and large shelters usually have three walls with one open side, suitable for sleeping during inclement weather.

Generally there are no fees for using the huts, shelters and campsites. Most huts cannot be pre-booked or reserved, so you are advised to carry a tent in case they are fully occupied upon your arrival. Huts and campsites in national parks and forests incur a fee. Huts in forests need to be booked in advance. Private campsites such as caravan parks require payment.

Caravan Parks, Hotels, Motels, B&Bs and Self-Contained Cottages

There are many commercial accommodation options available near the trail, or in towns the trail passes through or near to. Information about many of these is provided below.

Search Accommodation Options

Accommodation options along the Heysen Trail include campsites, huts, shelters, caravan parks, hotels and bed & breakfasts.

Listed Huts, Campsites and Towns

This comprehensive list of huts, campsites and town accommodation options provides up-to-date information. The official guidebooks mark each hut and campsite on the maps, but information about each can be limited, and sometimes campsites are closed, altered or upgraded, and that information is reflected below.

The below information can also be viewed via the Google Map of the Heysen Trail by selecting the Accommodation checkbox.

History
Originally built as a two-roomed hut, probably to accommodation shepherds working for Arthur Hardy of Sir Samuel Davenport. Hardy and Davenport were two of the first large estate landowners on this side of Mount Lofty Summit. They used the land chiefly for pastoralism and logging but also some agriculture, including the growing of vines and olives. Hardy was the first 'colonial gentleman' to build a summer house on Mount Lofty - nearby Mount Lofty House in the 1850s.

History
Bundaleer Forest was the first plantation forest in South Australia, and also the "birthplace of forestry in Australia". There was early concern that the State's precious native forest cover, never abundant, would be lost forever in the rush to find building materials. From 1873 the South Australian Parliament passed various acts to encourage the planting of forest trees, and in 1876 'Plantation A' - the first forest - was planted at Bundaleer. Many tree species - natives and exotics - were planted to see which would thrive in local conditions, and be commercially useful. Many of these trees, now a century and a quarter old, can still be seen at Bundaleer. The most successful product was the Radiata pine, today widely used in construction. There are other plantations along the Heysen Trail, at Kuitpo Forest and Mt Crawford Forest, but the vast majority of plantations of Pinus Radiatus are in the State's South-East. The first nurseryman at Bundaleer was John Curnow, whose cottage, known as Curnows Hut, is located near the original nursery. The timber from this plantation was used to build Spencer Gulf jetties, railway sleepers and in Broken Hill’s mines.

History
During the 1800s and 1900s the house was occupied by two generations of butchers, who had shops in either Georgetown or nearby Narridy. The slaughter house was on the rise east of the hut - hence the road name (Slaughterhouse Road). After WW1 a family of 6 children and 3 adults lived in the house. Between 1940 and 1950 the house was occupied by the Noll family, of which Wendy O'Hagan (nee Noll) now lives in Georgetown.

History
Mark Grey junior built the hut and adjacent cow yards in the early 1900s, milking cows and taking the cream to Melrose, at least 10 miles away. The hut was burnt down in a bushfire in 1988. The area was known as the race course, because local lads secretly trained their horses here for the picnic races. The current hut was built around the ruins of the original hut.

Water tank with basic shelter.

Please note that this water tank is in a range shadow, being on the western side of the ranges. At times during 2011 and 2012 the tank has been very low or empty. We would recommend the carrying of some extra water as a contingency (but not necessarily a full load) from Mt Arden South (reliable) or Dutchmans Stern (reliable).

You should watch this page for reports of the latest tank water level. We would also encourage hikers who have visited the campsite to record the tank water level on this forum page:
http://heysentrail.asn.au/forums/topic/eyre-depot-water/
Notes
Funding for this shelter and water tank was raised by the End-to-End 2 walking group.

History
Built in 1925 as an outstation for Eddie Pumpa. A four-roomed dwelling with a stone fire-place and verandahs, the house is a typical pug and pine construction. Slabs of native pine were cut and erected side by side. Chicken wire was nailed to this framework and mud or pug was flushed to fill the gaps. The floor was rammed earth and the roof was corrugated galvanized iron sheets.

Notes
Established in July of 2013 by the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources. This new water tank will avoid the problem of walkers having to rely on the water tank at the nearby Parachilna Gorge Trailhead (the tank there is readily accessible by vehicle so water supply is sometimes over-used.)

There is a water tank, small shelter, benches, information signage and trailhead stile here.

Water supply is sometimes overused due to the adjacent road, carpark and 4WD drivers. Hikers may need to walk 500 metres south to the Parachilna Gorge Hikers campsite to find more readily available water.
