Bush camping is $15 per vehicle per night ($30 with bathroom access).
Nungawurtina Hut costs $60 per night for two people. It sleeps six and guests need to be self-sufficient for food, water and bedding. The hut has 12V lighting, but there’s no shower, refrigerator or power. Pets are allowed. There is no mobile reception at Alpana and, while Parachilna, Blinman and Angorichina have some Optus coverage, Telstra users will find little in the way of reception north of Wilpena.
As the brochure says, “There’s no boring bits!” driving Alpana.
