Mixing Philanthropy and Business is a hard act to pull off. Toss in some tax payers subsidy and you might end up with a place like Wilpena Pound Resort where even the most dedicated of staff fail to deliver due to the lack of management. The online booking engine is cumbersome offering a baffling plethora of rates and special offers.... More

We stayed 3 nights, having booked a Safari Tent, but the weather was against us. We managed a flight the first morning but I was disappointed on two counts. First I was told that there was a 10% special but I noticed from my receipt that I paid full price ($199) and secondly the pilot didn't cater for passengers on... More

What great staff you have. I got the impression that they are undervalued. We stayed 2 nights and had dinner and drinks both nights in the restaurant.

Tent was very big and luxurious and we didn't not feel the effects of the 40 degree weather and 90km winds. Ensuite and King sized bed looking out towards the pound. Breakfast in the Main Safari Camp tent was BBQ based and the massive downside was they didn't open until 7.30 which meant we couldn't get a breakfast in before... More

This is a good place to stay if you prefer hotel style accommodation in the Flinders Ranges. The meals are good and the rooms are quiet. My room was clean, quiet and all I needed for a good night rest. The staff are friendly. I would stay again

We had one of the Edeowie Rooms, i.e. with kitchenette, and luckily we brought everything we needed with us. Shopping at the little groceries store would have been extremely expensive [e.g. $4.50 per litre of milk]. The Edeowie Rooms are set in a cube of 4 rooms so that every room has one corner of the cube with two large... More

Dear 12travellingismylife, We certainly appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback with us. I agree our Edeowie rooms create the perfect open atmosphere while in this great location. As you can understand we are in an isolated location, therefore the cost of freight is extremely high meaning some of our items must be marked up. We look forward... More

Full disclosure - three nights for two including breakfast. So great value. Iraki tents large, well equipped,comfortable king bed and clean. Slept with flaps open on warm nights. Closed in heavy rain. Great breakfasts cooked to order. Resort pool needs TLC and more lounges but still good in the heat. Would definitely go again if we got another deal as... More

We stayed for two nights in a permanent tent at the resort. It was very clean with facilities close by and use of the bar, restaurant and swimming pool at the main resort. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Various walks were well signposted and every advice given. Wouls recommend this to anyone.
