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.

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.

We stayed for two nights in a not-so-soundproof room which was only separated by a locked door. The bed was very hard. I wouldn't exactly call this place a 'resort'; the title is very misleading. My boyfriend & I are both vegetarian. We booked at the restaurant, went in & I asked about vegetarian options on the menu. The waitress... More

Because we flew from interstate we were travelling light with our camping gear. We would have appreciated some tables and seating. There are none except for some marked "reserved for buses only". The camping ground is nice location. The information centre extremely light on for such an iconic area. It wasn't until we visited the Parachilna hotel that we realised... More

Had two nights stay in the stander villa room. I am surprised it has full brick walls between rooms so it is good sound proof, not like other places in the remote places. So I had good nights sleep, which is very important to me when travelling. I am not picky with other things in those hotel rooms in remote... More

We stayed at the camping ground after reading poor reviews of the resort accommodation. We took a tent and stayed in a power site. Great location but the ground was as hard as a rock and not peg friendly. The site is large and the park is well maintained. Toilets are very clean, showers were great with plenty of hot... More
