We stayed at the Wilpena Pound Resort late in July and were blessed with perfect weather for getting out and about around the walking trails. Staying in a room close to reception and the bar I was a little worried about noise but there were no problems at all. The room itself was clean, comfortable and importantly warm as July... More

Our family of 4 spent a night in a permanent tent in the campground while riding the Flinders Ranges by Bike tracks. The tent was very basic, but we had an idea of what to expect. The tent could have benefited from a thorough clean and we found some forgotten items belonging to previous visitors when doing our final check... More

My partner and I love the Flinders Ranges and have now visited twice in the last couple of years. Stayed at the Wilpena Pound Resort on one of those trips and thought it wonderful: extremely comfortable motel-style room, even luxurious considering its remoteness. It is not exactly inexpensive (which is why we have stayed there only the once)! The restaurant... More

We were upgraded to deluxe room which seems better than standard if they were the ones closer to reception, as they would get all the noise and headlights shining in. Food in the restaurant was average but they are a long way from anywhere. I wish I could have stayed longer as it was freezing and raining when we were... More

Booked a long weekend (3 nights) at last minute so got a good deal on top room with free child place and breakfast included. Room was good with plenty of space, comfortable beds and sufficient amenities. Cooking facilities are a 2 burner gas hob and a microwave so plan in advance if you want to cook any meals. Resort itself... More

We were pleased to discover that this resort is now owned by the Adnyamathanha people on whose traditional country it stands. I like it when some of my tourist dollar goes to the First Peoples. I've stayed here before, in a tent, which is the cheap option for the single traveller, but it's lovely to have a comfortable room in... More

We decided to take a short camping trip to Wilpena Pound for the June Long Weekend. Thankfully it was a weekend in between all this wet weather we have had. The camping grounds a really well set out with different sizes and have clean amenities located in a very short walking distance if utilising the powered sites. Ground maintenance is... More

We stayed in this resort in the National Park and were pleased with our choice. As it was winter we had both good and bad weather but found plenty to do starting with a two hour walk into Wilpena Pound Hills Homestead. We fell in love with the red river gums that line the creek and the yellow footed wallabies... More

I almost cancelled our booking after reading a number of negative reviews. What a mistake that would have been. Excellent accommodation in the resort, comfortable, clean, warm and plenty of hot water. We went on a tour of the gorges that was excellent. We've eaten in the main restaurant and the medium rare kangaroo was superb as was the friendly... More

4 days was not enough in the campervan at Wilpena Pound. The park is set in a beautiful bush setting with access to the many hikes through the Pound only metres away.
