Welcome to Theldarpa.
Theldarpa is a 50000 ha sheep and cattle
property located in the heart of the Corner Country, little more than a half
hour drive west of Milparinka along the Hawker Gate Road.
It is owned by the Sandow family who have lived in the area for thirty years,
and is home to Sarah and David.
The homestead and accommodation places are located on the
confluence of two local creek systems which meet to form the historic Yandama
Creek. In the early days of settlement in the Corner Country the creek
formed part of the track from Mt Browne to the Transcontinental Railway
at Farina, in South Australia and was used by Afghan camel teams as well as
miners from Mt Browne. The remains of a historic wool-scour and shearing shed
can still be found on the creek.
Theldarpa is known for outback vistas that stretch for
endless kilometres before meeting a red-gum or gidgee lined creek.
Sandstone mesas rise above saltbush plateaus that shimmer with reflective skies.
Local 4WD is available with high clearance drives. It is a popular spot
for for birdwatchers, photographers and artists, as well as bush walkers.
Theldarpa is also an ideal stopover place for those traveling the loop around the Corner
Country, or towards or from Innamincka.
Dogs are welcome!
