Set amongst deep gorges and high mountain range with rugged rock formations and magnificent panoramas, 'Catninga' is the perfect holiday choice to give you a taste of the Flinders Ranges. This small family property boasts some of the most spectacular views in the area.

Located 26k's East of Port Augusta and nestled at the base of Mount Brown, Catninga is surrounded by the awe inspiring Flinders Ranges and the distant blue waters of Spencer Gulf.

Catninga homestead was built in late 1800's when it was run as a merino sheep/wool producing property. It was later used for the film set of the Australian film 'The Kangaroo' 1952, staring Maureen O'Hara and Chips Rafferty. The old stone fireplace still remains as a reminder to this early Australian film.

Today, Catninga is a small working cattle & horse property venturing into tourism. Heather & Brian are passionate about protecting the many endangered species of flora and the abundant fauna on the property and are committed in their quest to regenerate and protect the land and feel proud to share this beautiful part of Australia with anyone who wishes to visit.
