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

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.
