The Full Brick 3 Bedroom Main Residence

The original sections of the building were built circa 1883 to accommodate the school teacher and family.

Subsequent owners, and their families extended the building to its current size today with an additional room (later used as the Telephone Exchange and Post Office), a breezeway and 3 extra rooms are utilised today as a full walk in pantry, another bedroom, and a shower room/laundry.

The Full Brick Classroom
This was also built circa1883 to accommodate the local school age children.  For many years after the school closed in 1957 it was used as a storage area and a workshop.  In 2013, both Glenys and Mike along with assistance from friends  restored this classroom for use as a conference and meeting centre.

In August/September 2013 they added "The Bunkhouse" with 3 beds and a toilet within the original cloakroom to give additional accommodation.

There is no NBN for this area, but we utilise the Telstra "Blue Tick" system for both Mobile phones and the WiFi unit which we have found to be faster than what is offered by normal ADSL2 systems back in Adelaide

For many years Glenys & I had seen the need time and time again for those with a great un-met need to retreat somewhere safe, quiet, hospitable, and where all can just veg out and be refreshed.
In 2012 we acquired what was originally the Nackara School and the teacher's residence on an almost 4 acre property for just that purpose and to assist with fund raising for our missions works.
The property is located approximately 300kms north east of Adelaide on the Barrier Highway and roughly 43 kms from the township of Peterborough.
Current facilities include 3 bedrooms (suits 8) in the main residence,  multiple bunk bed accommodation (adjoining classroom suits 3) as well as caravan and tent sites.
For those who enjoy history, we have retained the school's original 'long drop' toilet, no red back spiders!


As there are sheep and other animals on adjacent properties, prior approval by the property owners to bring dogs on site is required.

Nackara is in the ideal stop-over location when travelling either from Adelaide or from Broken Hill - it's in the right spot for a break from driving, and it is also in the right place to see many of the local sights including the following;

Peterborough:  The Peterborough Information CentreSteamtown Heritage Rail Centre with all the old carriages and engine - Railway Bob, Peterborough Town Hall and lots more.
Jamestown: Jamestown Railway Museum, Bundaleer Forest, Magnetic Hill
Orroroo:  Tourism, Black Rock, Goyder's Line
And many other picturesque towns like Melrose at the foot of Mt Remarkable, Booleroo Centre, Hawker, Yunta, as well great driving trips to Dawson Creek (via Oodlawirra), Teetulpa Gold Fields and many many more!
