Shearers Quarters “Camping”
Running 100,000 sheep in its heyday, shearing at Bungaree was an annual event that could take up to a month. During shearing, the shearers stayed in the Shearers’ Quarters, located opposite the Woolshed. Today, with modern machinery and fewer sheep, shearing takes only a week and most of the shearers live locally so do not need to stay on site.
The Shearers Quarters has been converted into a conference centre venue but can also be hired by larger groups, such as extended family groups and school camps, who are seeking a more rustic "camping with comfort" experience.
The Shearers Quarters can be booked by groups of up to 25 people at a minimum nightly charge of $880 per night for a minimum 2 night stay, with discounted rates available for longer stays. Guests need to bring their own swags, or bedding and mattress.

Full of local and South Australian history, great way to connect with this, while staying in the beautiful old buildings that are comfortable and functional, while retaining the old world charm. Oh and the helpful hosts make great coffee.
