Our campsite is surrounded by gum trees and bush land, yet we are only a five-minute walk from the Anglesea shopping strip and a 15-20 minute walk to the ocean beach. Araluen is an ideal location for retreats, school camps and family gatherings.
We offer a wide range of onsite and offsite activities, including low ropes, archery, nature hunts and team building activities for school groups on weekdays only. Offsite activities provided by our business partners include surfing, kayaking, high ropes, mountain bike riding and horse-riding. We also have a variety of busk walks and nature walks in close proximity.
Very recently upgraded, our facilities are thoughtfully designed so that teachers, parents and leaders have a clear view of the main play areas and gathering areas. We take pride in providing catering to your group with quality meals at a very reasonable cost.
A peaceful location for prayer, worship and contemplation

We loved Araluen when we stayed there for the recent Avalon Air Show 2023. The camp cleanliness and facilities were outstanding. The breakfast on the last day was amazing and was a great start for our trip back to Adelaide.
