Coastal Camel Safaris
Spencer Gulf, South Australia

Afghan cameleers were brought to Australia in the 1860s to manage a mode of transport suited to harsh desert terrain. Camel trains transported wool and stores from Spencer Gulf to the mining area around Mount Remarkable and to pastoral properties. They also supplied materials to the Overland Telegraph Line.  More detailed information - S.A History Hub.  

Today, our Camel Farm base is located within 10 kilometres of the Afghan cameleers 1860s Port of arrival at Port Augusta. In October and November 2023, our team of cameleers pioneered coastal camel safaris at Port Paterson. Thanks to their success, we are now planning to offer more opportunities for the general public, tourist groups, and schools to experience short, half-day, overnight, and extended coastal safaris.

This page and the 2025-2026 trekking itinerary are currently in the final stages of planning. Please check back soon or email us at cameltreksaustralia@gmail.com to be added to the mailing list and receive the upcoming PDF.
