Reviewed 15 December 2015

What a magic place this is. We visited here for 3 days during September, which is the best time of year. Very green and lots of wild flowers out at that time. The property is very rugged and caters for all sorts. There are non-powered camp sites around the property along with a small caravan park area, which can accommodate approx 12 vans, and also has 3-4 cabins. There is a fantastic camp kitchen with bbq/oven/stove/microwave/fridge/crockery/saucepans for use, plus a games room with 8 ball and table tennis. There is also an old overseers cottage, close to the Homestead available for hire. Everything is neat as a pin. The owners are two of the most friendly accommodating people you would hope to come across, and make you feel like a long lost friend. There is four wheel driving around the property, from moderate to extreme. Add your Go-Pro camera for the birds' eye view of 4WD.The view from the high point Mount Arden, gives 360º views across Spencer Gulf and inland to the Flinders Ranges. Gob-smacking awesome, take a camera. Camping accommodates vans (certain areas only due to ruggedness), tents, and camper trailers, and most of these areas have a loo, or you can be a bit more secluded with none of the cons. Lots of different spots to 'make your own private stay'. Good walking shoes a must if you want to explore on foot. Bike riding also available for the energetic, but take a mountain bike. Countryside varies from gentle rounded hills, to very rugged rocks and outcrops. Yellow tailed rock wallabies live here, and we loved spotting them. Abseiling and rock climbing activities available for those keen enough. Come visit Argadells and just sit back and relax, or have an adventure. We loved it.

We wanted a peaceful, tranquil spot in the Flinders were we could go hiking, 4WD & have some quality family time and we found it at Argadells. The facilities, amenities & accommodation were spotless. The table tennis & pool table in the hall were highlights in the evening for family battles along with the fire pit where marshmellows & chocolate banana boats were prepared & eaten. The hikes we did in and around the property were spectacular offering breathtaking views, great wildlife and exciting discoveries. Unfortunately we were unable to do the 4WD track up to Mt Arden due to heavy rainfall the night before (nothing wrong with this part of the world getting a drink), but that means we will be back to visit sometime soon. Thanks to Malcolm & Judy (the property owners) for a great little spot. RELAX, ESCAPE, LAUGH, EXPLORE, DISCOVER.

We stayed in a tent there and enjoyed the tenting experience. The equipment was arranged by Paul Keen of Wallabee travels for us else we would have to buy the equipment.there was quite a lot of wildlife like Kangaroos ,Wallabees,Wallaroos,and some birds.If you know how to drive a 4w drive well and can manage to navigate the place based on maps then you will enjoy some nice scenic views. The sunset is fantastic. You have a lot more staying options like campervans and cottages. If this place is enroute your travels then it is an opt for this else this can be given a miss.

We wanted to stay near port augusta on our drive north from adelaide to coober pedy. Port augusta is a bit of a dive so we headed to argadelles just thirty min outside of quorn.

It's surrounded by hills, gorges and has plenty of wildlife inc yellow footed rock wallabies.

Cabins are comfortable. A/c, heater, shower, hot water & a basic kitchen.

Highly recommended

This is our second trip and it will not be our last. The accommodation is spotless, everything works and you feel as if the it's all been arranged just for you.
The historical machinery and artifacts are displayed on gravel plinths a lesson that should be copied by the pioneers park in Quorn where weeds grow up around their displays.
We drove a few of the easier tracks and simply soaked up the scenery and wildlife. At dusk we stoked up the open fire outside and relaxed ........ wonderful.
