Hi guys,

I am looking at a place to camp overnight, with 5 vehicles, outside Yunta in SA. In the book, it suggests a creek out near Teetulpa Homestead, 7km nth of Yunta.

Does anyone know of this site, or has anyone stayed there. We really are just looking at a quick overnighter to brief the group, and sleep, before an early start in the morning, and we are not too keen on staying in Yunta.

Thanks, Jo

Dunno which way you're heading - but about 20km NW at Waukaringa would be a nice place for a camp !!!!

Yes, that is the way we are heading. My thought was that if Teetulpa Creek wasn't ok, then to head up to Waukaringa. From the photo's I have seen of Waukarina, it is very rocky, is there enough ground to pitch 5 tents without having to sleep on rocks?

Thanks, Jo

Yea- on the L/H/S of the road (from Yunta) there's a good clearing- next to a haunted house ruin !!!

I have stayed at both, the creek is nice but Waurkaringa has a sense of adventure. Watch out for the goannas that live under the concrete of the old veranda. You can even spend the morning poking around by the old chiminey and deep holes in the ground.

Thankyou so much. Is the one near Teetulpa easy to find, as in next to the road?

From memory it is before Teetulpa and just before the creek crossing on the right hand side heading north. The country side around there is just salt bush but as you approach the creek it gets into timber country around the creek. It is just a matter of finding one of the tracks off the road which will run easterly and following the creek to a suitable camping spot.
