Stayed one night in a cabin. Very comfortable bed. Well equipped kitchen with full size fridge and gas cooking. Well laid out grounds, clean and tidy and cabins not too close to each other. Would recommend to friends.

First point....3 adults looking for a bed for a night. The nephew is 6'3" tall, but nowhere in the web page is it made clear that the third bed is sized for an 8 year old. That's seriously Bad Billy. Secondly, the guests are expected to do their own washing up, drying and putting away of all kitchen items. What...

We were here just over 6mths ago and again as an overnighter yesterday. It still is a great park and I think that the amenities have been spruced up and upgraded a bit on the loos and basins. I highly reccomend this place if you are travelling through or staying in Port Augusta. It's close to the town and there's...

This caravan park was excellent! We only stayed one night as we were just passing through and we booked an ensuite site which was absolutely worth it, the facilities were excellent, staff were helpful, the pool looked lovely (however it was too cold for a swim), the only disappointing thing is that the "free wifi" didn't work at our sight...

The Big 4 Caravan Park at Port Augusta is a great place to stay, sites are large, very clean amenities, excellent camp kitchen, loved the wooden dining room table ( covered with a nice plastic table cloth) & chairs. Would recommend this as a good place to stay🐞🐞🍷🍷

Stayed in a Deluxe Cabin 2 and it was very comfortable. We felt safe in this caravan park and the staff were really lovely and helpful. It had air con, a very comfy bed and lounge and a great kitchen......we saved a lot of money by cooking our own meals. I'd stay here again.

Discovery Parks - Port Augusta (formerly Port Augusta Holiday Park) is the ideal holiday park to plan your great southern adventure. It’s not every day you get to travel on a moving museum, but step on board the unique Pichi Richi Railway and you’ll understand why it’s so special. Discover local history with a tour of the iconic Royal Flying Doctor Service and Wadlata Outback Centre, where you will walk in the steps of the Aboriginal people who have lived here for 40,000 years. ... more   less
