Tungali Cottage, situated between Williamstown and Springton, is nestled in peaceful Red Gum country near the foot of Mt Crawford and offers guests the opportunity to enjoy country living.

The Cottage enjoys a private and secluded position nestled on its own, some distance from the main homestead, peaceful retreat amongst majestic red gums and verdant farmland.

The cottage overlooks a large dam that is inhabited by abundant bird life. For those wishing to get closer to nature, the surrounding country offers an excellent choice of walking trails. Mount Crawford Forest and the famous Heysen Trail are only a short walk away, while it is only a 10-15 minute drive to Hale National Park, Kaiser Stuhl Conservation Park or the Barossa Goldfields.

The area is blessed with abundant wildlife with abundant bird life, in addition to the water birds to be found on the dam, and kangaroos aplenty.

The Dam

The complete peace and quiet restores energy for those who have a busy life!
