Ros Dunstall, Darryl Smith and Ryan Smith have kindly sent me this report about Nuttbush Caravan Park which is situated 40km west of Port Augusta.
“We were travelling to Streaky Bay in April and decided not to stop in Port Augusta overnight but travel on and perhaps stop at Iron Knob or thereabouts.
About 40kms from Port Augusta on the Eyre Highway we came upon Nuttbush Retreat and Caravan and Camping area.
We decided to pull in as there were only 3 vans in the camping area and a couple of tents.
Well we got our first surprise when it only cost $20/night (3 Adults in a Toyota Coaster bus with small dog).
The facilities were excellent, toilet and showers clean and modern, bbq and camp kitchen area also clean and tidy.
Swimming pool was closed as it was too cold.
A dining room available but best to book for a great country cooked meal in an area of the old wool shed set aside for a restaurant/eating area – beautifully set up and food great.
Oh, it also came with smell-o-rama, as they had just finished shearing the last of the sheep.
The rec room was comfortable, and there is a huge fireplace for those cold nights.
We would thoroughly recommend this stopover to anyone travelling westwards after Port Augusta.”
Some photos were also attached to the report and you can see them here.
