An ideal combination of camping and homestead accommodation
We feel we have created our tours with the perfect combination of camping and accommodation. Experience 2 nights camping under the stars at the start of your tour together with walk-in tents and comfy off the ground beds. Our campsite is ideally located at magnificent Ormiston Gorge allowing us to walk directly into our campsite on night 1 and minimising our travelling time on other days. Enjoy a superb dinner each night around the campfire perfectly matched with fine Australian wines and beer. Then when you crave it the most, we will spend 2-night at the historic Glen Helen Homestead. At the end of a day’s walk there is nothing nicer than cooling off in the homestead’s swimming pool. With a warm cosy fireplace, a charming restaurant featuring award-winning food and live entertainment in the main lounge area on many nights, you’ll love the atmosphere of the homestead, as well as its comfortable rooms with en-suites and hot showers.
