Welcome to Marree, Outback South Australia.

Lake Harry Ruins

In the 1890s this was the site of one of the largest Date Palm plantations. In 1897 there were around 2700 plants. Eventually, due to drought, remoteness and high costs this site was abandoned.

The start of the famous Birdsville and Oodnadatta tracks, home of Lake Eyre and district.

We are excited to now have an all-weather bitumen road to Marree from Lyndhurst.

Enjoy and discover the old Ghan railway, have a relaxing afternoon at Hergott Springs or take a flight over Lake Eyre and Cooper Creek or take a short drive up the Birdsville Track to Lake Harry Ruins and Lake Harry and if your lucky it may be full of water.

What was formerley a little run down shop has gone through a huge transformation in the last couple of years thanks to Owner/Manager Lyall Oldfield who had the foresight and was passionate about making it bigger and better with more to offer. Come and visit this massive new shop which boasts a large bakery and kitchen, a fully licensed bistro for delicious evening meals, a great selection of wines. Fresh bread is made daily in peak season as well as pasties, pies, pizza and our version of hot dogs. You definitely won’t go hungry.

One block away we have more accommodation to offer in the Oasis Caravan Park which has plenty of camping and of course our comfy cabins.
