Mt Ive Station: Gawler Ranges

The Gawler Ranges are a beautiful place at the northern end of the Eyre Peninsula.  We left the bitumen at Wirrulla after a re-stock at Ceduna.

A few hours of sandy, rocky, and corrugated roads led to Mt Ive Station which is a working sheep station. We camped about 2km from the homestead in the bush with a magic view out across the ranges and Mt Ive immediately behind us.

There are a number of 4WD tracks on the station and we chose to take the “Flight Path” named after Mr Flight who built the trek around the station.  Some rocky climbs and descents were easily managed in the Landcruiser and the scenery was just magnificent.

It was great to camp away from the homestead and have our own little patch of bush.  Lovely campfires every night and some great camp oven meals!  But we were still close enough to zip down to the homestead for a hot shower!
