The water is slowly creeping up at Roonka. Fortunately our camping areas and buildings are well above the 1956 flood levels, so Roonka remains a pretty amazing base from which to explore the Riverland and safely witness this high river event.

Nestled on the tranquil banks of the River Murray, about an hour and forty minutes north-east of Adelaide, Roonka specialises in creating exceptional, memorable experiences through our shared love of water sports and the outdoors, encouraging guests to re-live their childhood and immerse themselves into the whole old-school camp experience.

With bunkhouse accommodation, camping for small or large groups, caravan sites, launching facility, private billabong, a wide range of recreational activities and fully equipped kitchens, Roonka is ideal for school camps, cultural and community groups, sporting and social clubs – and family groups longing to reunite, relax and rewind to the simple pleasures of simpler times.

Things move a little slower down by the river, including the internet… and that’s all part of our charm.  Let’s disconnect to reconnect.
