This deserted town has this beautiful trek but it's really scary tough n harsh. Beautiful landscapes with lot of reptiles you will see. Weather can play really harsh. Worth the effort.

We recently stayed here for 5 days in a remote camp site and it was well kept and the long drop was well maintained. Went four wheel driving everyday and found that the staff, especially Chloe were more than helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Great place to sit back and relax with or without kids and just soak up... More

We came for a 4-5 night stay with 26 friends and 14 cars. The designated camp ground allocated for us was roomy and we camped under shade in our caravans,camper trailers and tents,some with powered sites. Clean amenities, hot showers and a large camp kitchen. The 4WD tracks were well defined with something for beginners and experienced drivers not to... More

With the rate of track closures in South Australia this place is a breath of fresh air (literally!). We decided at the last minute to head away for the October Long Weekend and was lucky enough to secure accommodation at the Crotta Homestead. Being first timers to the Bendleby Ranges this gave us the creature comforts of home and a... More

We spent three days driving the Bendleby and Hungry Ranges with freinds and their familys.What a magnificent place, there is truly something for everyone from the 4Wd tracks to bush walking or just relaxing and soaking up the peaceful surrounds.Warren and Jane are very freindly and accommodating.

Enjoyed the 4 wheel driving experience - plenty of tracks of varying difficulty with Billy goat track being the most challenging. Also great bush camping experience

We spent two nights at Bendleby ranges on the way home from a holiday to Wilpena Pound and Arkaroola. We did not book anywhere choosing to call in at station accommodation each evening and stay. Bendleby Ranges suited us perfectly. The campground at hidden valley was secluded, allowing for ourselves and camper trailer to set up in peace and quite.... More

Well organised, signposted, managed, mapped, described and organised (did I say organised) 4WD tracks that would last you three or four days. The owners seem very concerned to ensure that people are only driving on tracks within their capabilities and intent on breaking you in slowly and saving the best (Billy Goat in Hungry Ranges) until last and until they...
