On our recent roadtrip to the Flinders Ranges, we decided to check out the motel-style accommodation at Discovery Parks Port Augusta. Yes, that's right, this holiday park in the Spencer Gulf offers a variety of motel rooms, ranging from two to six beds, within an adjacent complex. These rooms are well-equipped with a bar fridge, microwave, tea/coffee, dining table, television, air conditioner and bathroom. And, on top of that, you also get a pre-packed continental breakfast takeaway for each night of your stay!
Besides motel-style accommodation, Discovery Parks Port Augusta does have the usual range of cabins and sites to choose from as well. While we were there, the deluxe cabins and powered sites seemed to be just as popular as the motel rooms. Guests consisted of both holiday makers and the power sector workforce. With regards to our room, we were very happy with its size, cleanliness and affordability. The "stay 3 pay 2" promotion available at the time of our stay made the price even more attractive, as we essentially got one night free. I would recommend having a look at the current deals on offer before booking.
Discovery Parks Port Augusta is located at the corner of Highway A1 and Stokes Terrace, and features an activity room, playground, camp kitchen, bbq, laundry and two swimming pools, which are all very well maintained. Do note that, due to the COVID-19 situation, check-in procedures have been revised and all guests will experience a contactless check-in upon arrival. A text message will be sent to your mobile with the code to access a safe containing your keys and any other information.
