Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Camping at Site 5 at Catninga Station. Magnificent views, could not have chosen a more beautiful, natural site amongst the gumtrees, cows, emus and galahs. Great hot outdoor shower and fires each night. Host Heather very helpful. Highly recommend

We stayed in one of the bush campsites which are beautiful and secluded. The hike was also a lovely addition with great views over the surrounding area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I would recommend a visit to Catninga for anyone wishing for a true country experience

We camped here for a night, it is such a beautiful spot. You have your own area to camp with plenty of space around. The view is spectacular and it is so quiet and peaceful. A great spot to stay and enjoy the bush

We loved our four night bush camping stay at Catninga Station . Heather and Brian were great hosts who have created excellent facilities and magnificent campsites for travellers wanting secluded and spacious campsites in beautiful natural surrounds. We highly recommend Catninga's "Peter Good Gully walk" and loved returning from our daily travels to visits from kangaroos, emus and very friendly beef cattle at our campsite.

A group of 12 of us glamped in our caravans over the long weekend. We are all very impressed with the rustic beauty so close to home. The 4WD tag along tour was fantastic and hosts Brian and Heather were very friendly and accommodating. 15 minutes from Port Augusta.

It is a great place with lots of animals and a great place to spend time in the outback with the conveniences of home. We stayed for a couple of nights in caravan which was comfortable and warmer than expected, even in July.
