Salmon Gums is a little gem of a park. You see dry red dirt but then you see all the little gardens with well maintained flowers and succulents.
As we arrived, Peter came out from his caretaker caravan to greet us. Such a friendly and pleasant guy.
We decided to hook up to power and water, for $15. Wanting to fill our empty tank again, after the long trip over the Eyre Highway and Nullarbor. The last time we filled our water tanks was in Ceduna eight days before arriving in Salmon Gums. We still had one full tank left but as we didn’t know where we were heading next, we topped up.
For $10pn you can still camp and have use of the toilets and showers, microwave and sink. They have a washing machine and the usual book exchange, also a fire-pit and outdoor seating.
Community Caravan Park
As the name suggests, the money from the park goes back in to the Salmon Gums community. Peter told me, as well as other things, they are adding seating and a rest area for travelers.
The Pub is around 500m away. Menu’s and opening times are up on the wall at the park. Although told the opening times can be a bit random.

Pub Times and meals
You might see this park as basic, and it is! But it has character, and a lot of love has been put in by Peter. The gardens are a credit to him, they and him are what makes this park.
