Few years ago I had the privilege of bushcamping at pernatty station. Fantastic stay there. Station has since been sold. Did a search and don't see any other posts about it.

Has anyone ever been on it. There is a grave of an explorer named william coulthard there. He died of thirst and there is a bit of history there.

If anyone knows how to contact the new owners i'd be much appreciated.

Just a bit more info on Coulthard,if you visit the barossa valley and in particular Nuriootpa,you will see that he left a large legacy there,gifted the land the caravan park and oval is on,the High School land was his,built the Methodist Church and I believe the main town hall is rembered with a plaque.
