Envisioned as a place to recharge and embrace the outdoors, Camel Beach was purchased in 2000 with impact conservation in mind. Situated on the Eyre Peninsula this private 250 acre coastal conservation estate is famous for its pristine wilderness of coastal cliffs, rocky shores, sandy beaches, dunes and native scrub. It is home to a number of threatened species, including; the Australian Sea Lion, White-Bellied Sea Eagle, Osprey, Hooded Plover, and temporary home to masses of migratory seabirds. In May, the majestic Southern Right Whale migration travels past Camel Beach on their way to the Head of Bight nursery grounds and pass by again in October, on their way back to Antarctica waters.
The Camel Beach sanctuary is located at the southern end of a spectacular coastal area known as the Chain of Bays (Venus Bay to Streaky Bay) and through the private owner's efforts for conservation status, it is now protected for future generations. In terms of the property structures, environmental design and low carbon infrastructure have created an eco-dwelling for guest stays that touch the earth lightly, through material choice, harvesting rainwater, solar panels, inhouse products and recycling.
We love your wanderlust, those who seek far-away places and ’the wild things.’ Adventuring to destinations that support conservation and national parks. Opening the property gate allows for visitors to create unique and impactful memories, with a nod of a greener future. A wild escape in a bespoke offgrid architectural nest, surrounded by the energy of panoramic ocean and desert, is pure body and mind goodness. Camel Beach is not only a conservation sanctuary, it’s a brand committed to nature, sustainability and wanderlust.
'I had searched far and wide in my pursuit of the perfect filming location for our new IMAX feature documentary, when I came across Camel Beach House. I almost couldn’t believe eyes. Secluded on the wild and extremely beautiful Eyre Peninsula, the house is soulfully designed and totally unique. With the roaring Southern Ocean only a short walk from the front deck, this place is unlike anywhere I have ever been. I was sure that my shoot dates were likely going to be too short notice to secure the property, so I sent a message to CBH. Within the hour CBH had organised our entire visit, and I have to say that this is one of the most spectacular experiences I have had in South Australia. I am now on a new mission to find any excuse to come back.'
