Mt Ive Station, Gawler Ranges, South Australia

There mail box is a beauty and can't be missed!

 

Located in the Gawler Ranges, a little to the north east of the national park, Mt Ive station covers 900sq km (approx 210,000 acres) of rolling hills and saltbush plains amongst the Gawler Ranges at the southern end of the Lake Gairdner National Park.

Lake Gairdner with water - a beautiful sight.


The homestead offers fuel, a liquor store, a basic kiosk, excellent camping and caravan sites (some with power) and a range of different accommodation. Bush camping away from the homestead is also available.

The camping area at Mt Ive; one of the old stone huts and remnants of a bygone era.


A number of self-drive 4WD tracks on the property ranging in time from just an hour or two to all day will tempt you to stay a little longer. The ‘Flight Path’ is a pleasant all day affair which takes you to Peter's Pillars, the most accessible organ pipe rock feature in the Gawler Ranges. The trips to the top of Scott Hill or Mt Ive itself are beauties in the evening light.

Peter's Pillars on Mt Ive - amazing formations; driving one of the tracks.


There's also access to the southern end of Lake Gairdner, which is well worth the drive. Along this route you can take side trip to Kath's Castle, an extensive area of 'organ pipes' and to a historic rock embankment built in 1892.

Lake Gairdner and the amazing reflections on the water - not a sight often seen.
