Caurnamont Hill




Caurnamont is a small rural settlement in the Murray Lands, located

130 kms east of Adelaide. It is easily accessible for a weekend getaway. Caurnamont has been a popular holiday destination for many years and some original shacks remain in use today. The appeal of the Murray Lands lies in the river's unique natural environment, long sunny days and dark starry nights. It is home to pelicans, echidnas, kookaburras and wombats. 

The wide river at Caurnamont is perfect for water recreation like fishing, kayaking and paddle boarding. Or you can simply allow yourself to slow to slow to the pace of the locals and enjoy lazy days beside the water or  peaceful afternoons curled up on the lounge with a good book. Share a sunset drink with friends and a barbeque overlooking the lagoon. This is what holidays at Caurnamont are all about.

Alfresco Dining Area
