After a recent trip to Kenya staying in safari tents, we decided to do the same with our relatives from England in the Flinders. Tents were near new, lovely big comfy beds and clean ensuite. Shower pressure was ordinary, but not really a problem. Cold at night and needed extra blankets which were provided easily. View was lovely, and we... More

When I attempted to book direct on the Resort’s website there was a minimum of three nights stay in the motel units. This is outrageous bullying by a big resort with a monopoly. Do not succumb! Have a look at the web booking sites. I booked a room in the Aroona block for two nights for $130 per night, which... More

Hi DaisyClover, Thanks for your comments. Feedback is always welcome from all of our guests. It seems that you were able to get one of of the 7 day sale rates. This is fantastic value for the region as the costs for running a remote resort, within the National Park are far higher than that of a CBD location. We... More

Blissful weather & wonderful environment. Great walking trails & base for 4WD adventures. That said substandard facilities especially ablutions in powered sites which were not cleaned well, or indeed at all, are disappointing & a major health issue. When reported a number of times finally corrected. Manager's response was; 'We're sorry.' Not really good enough given that other campers spoke... More

This was my 1st time to actually stay at the Pound resort and was not disappointed with the room but the bathroom was really small. The parking outside the rooms was not the best, i.e.not enough room for the cars and the condition of road gutter etc. could do with some maintenance. Our accommodation included breakfast which was a bonus... More

We spent 2 nights at the resort and found the experience very enjoyable. The walking trails and activities were well signposted and we all loved seeing the emus and kangaroos. The facilities were good, with showers and clean toilets. However, our main concern, and the reason I would mark the resort down, is the 'bistro'. The staff were friendly but... More

I've stayed here many times over the last 8 years, always a camper in the open campground, enjoying the emu and roo locals. Good Facilities and a well stocked general store/bottleshop. I like to travel to the area to get out of the city and to relax into nature.

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
