Nyroca Bush Camp

Nyroca Camp was a wonderful and serene place to spend a few enjoyable days.  Set amongst majestic and picturesque Red Gums and Sugar Gums, just 8klms from Wangary township with a lovely creek meandering through the property I can highly recommend this spot for you to spend some quality time.
Parked at the camp in lovely serene bushland
  Located on the Flinders Highway, 55klms North West of Port Lincoln on a natural bush setting and is ideal for camps and with a unique outdoor bush chapel, for bush weddings and church retreats.  It has sleeping facilities for about 36 guests with over seven dormitories all containing double bunks.  It also features a kitchen (modern and fully equipped), dining and recreation rooms containing a wood heater with satellite TV, DVD and internet access. 
Rotary bridge
 Outside is a wood supplied campfire circle, a large gas fired BBQ and rotating spit, volleyball and table tennis and a rope making machine.
The Pyramid in the pond
There is also lots of farm animals for the children big and small can interact with and feed.
The Ducks
The Goats
  Daisy the dog is extremely friendly and is known to chase the odd ball or two, but bring the camera out and she is off. 
Mal (caretaker) and camera shy Daisy
 Honey is processed also on the premises and free range eggs are available.  A powerful telescope is available in the recreation room for star gazing and when in season you can catch yabbies in the nearby creek.  Plans are afoot to have a special section in the camp for Motorhomes to park, with a dump point etc so watch this space.  Not far from the camp are the beautiful waters of Coffin Bay where you can purchase oysters direct from the farms.

I just love these rock formations at Coles Point
  Swimming or fishing at nearby Coles Point and Greenly beach or you can climb the Marble range.

We travelled over 200klms yesterday to arrive at a roadside stop just 5 klms from Streaky Bay.  We had full intentions of staying at Elliston, but arrived there on a Saturday afternoon and nothing was open and I mean nothing.  We were unable to reach the person we were going to stay with so we made a executive decision to venture on and meet up with  Lance & Kay (Rats Nest) and Ted and Mayrke(I feel Better now).  We have spent two nights here around the campfire solving the world’s problems and tomorrow we will move on to another roadside stop about 40 klms away.  A big day tomorrow.
