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 skiing, 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.



The Bird Nest @ Caurnamont is a contemporary holiday house located beside the picturesque Murray River. It is available for short term holiday rental and weekend stays.  The house is elevated with a north facing deck overlooking the river and ancient sandstone cliffs. It is tastefully decorated in a modern Scandi-style and is fully equipped with everything you need for an enjoyable stay.  A spacious, open plan kitchen, dining and living zone open up onto the deck with a barbecue and an outdoor lounge setting. Comfortable accommodation is available for up to 7 guests in three bedrooms, serviced by 2 bathrooms. An alfresco area overlooks a lagoon with a wooden jetty which provides direct access to the riverbank.  Here one can tie up a boat,  swim  or watch the sunset while relaxing beneath majestic Red River Gums.
