We spent three nights here on a package arranged by Down Under Endeavors. The reception helped us sort out the three tours so that we did not double up too many for our brief stay. The restaurant was most helpful with our gluten and dairy free meals, providing non dairy milk and cooking meals to order and providing special treats... More

We stayed two nights on a powered site, the area was clean, rubbish bins nearby, amenities adequate, quiet with lots of room between sites, all this under a canopy of trees in a bush land setting. You can walk to the National Parks Office, the shop/coffee shop, bar and restaurant plus large pool. The coffee was excellent as were all... More

In February my partner and I decided to take a trip and check out the new Ikara Safari Tents. Damn glad we did. They are modern, luxurious and the views can only speak for themselves. Only suggestion is perhaps a bathroom door and not a fluro light in the bathroom. We had delicious meals in the restaurant, and Todd made... More

This was our first stay at the resort after many trips to the Flinders. The Edeowie rooms were clean however were not serviced after the first day as promised. On check out we were charged for drinks at the bar which were not ours. When pointed out that we paid cash for the drinks we consumed, we were challenged vigorously... More

We stayed 2 nights. The Edeowie rooms are described as "deluxe" They aren't - they are basic. You don't get plastic seats in "deluxe" rooms! Don't get me wrong, the rooms are perfectly clean, and adequate - but deluxe they are not. Having read the many complaints on Tripadvisor about the food in the restaurant/bistro (and the MANY apologies about... More

We spent a night here in a camper van; enjoyed a great walk up to the Pound: very quiet and relaxing. We saw emus and kangaroos, and read with interest (and emotion) the story of the family that had established its home there a hundred years ago. The camp is well kept, well organised, and was probably the nicest of... More

We had an excellent site near the (non flowing) creek close to all facilities. We had a nice fireplace next to our site so we had some nice warm fires. Lots of kangaroos in the park and they usually pop in for a visit each night. There are some magnificent walks around the resort as well as some great drives.
