Overall a great trip with many positives. Wilpena Pound is gorgeous and Wilpena Pound Resort is in a great location. We stayed in the Ikara safari tent and the tent was amazing. It was part hotel room part tent so definitely glamorous camping. Only constructive feedback I have is about the breakfast service. One staff member serving and cooking breakfasts... More

We stopped in the permanent tents on a couple of cold Autumn days. They were very comfortable with large beds, plenty of room and very adequate ensuite. Didn't hurt that we could have a glass of wine and talk to the emus and wallaby's a few metres away. Breakfast basic but adequate and main bar very good. Service was friendly... More

Stayed in the unpowered area of the resort. Good amenities and after a couple of days bush camping the hot showers were just what was required. No bargains in the store but had very good food at the Poddy Dodgers bar. Fires if you bring your own wood.

Hi Idreher, Thanks for coming and staying at the Wilpena Pound Campground. We are really glad that you enjoyed your stay. It is definitely great sitting around a fire (Just remember that during the Summer there are "Total Fire Bans" in the Narional Park). We look forward to seeing you back again soon.

We had a 2 night stay in an Ikara Safari Tent, we loved everything about it! The bed was comfy and the heater made the tent was snug. The en-suite was brilliant and loved the gas heated shower!!

We recently stayed in one of the family Safari Tents. While these are an innovative idea, there were a few areas where these could be improved. The paltry lighting inside the tent was the main issue. While this is probably not a problem in the warmer months when the front of the tent can be left open and there is... More

Stayed for 2 nights in the Ikara Safari tents, they whole experience was fantastic. Loved the decor, the tents are big with a great ensuite. 5 star glamping at its best. Especially loved the main tent where you are cooked a full breakfast in the morning and you get to meet some great people, chat about your day ahead. The... More

If you think of Wilpena Pound Resort as a base from which to explore the area then you will appreciate it better. The resort itself is located at the entrance to a gorge that leads into Wilpena Pound itself and although the scenery at the resort is breathtaking, with gorgeous views of high, craggy ranges, to explore the area properly...

Hi PetrolPete, You are absolutely correct. Wilpena Pound Resort is not the reason you come to Wilpena Pound or the Flinders Ranges, it is the perfect base to explore the region.

Stayed in an Ikara Safari Tent for 3 nights and loved the experience. Although tents 1 -4 seem to have a bit more privacy we were very happy with the privacy we had in tent 6. Originally I was very worried about how cold the tent might get on cold nights but the heater was very effective so I had... More

We stayed 4 nights last week with our 3 boys aged 4-11yo. What a beautiful part of South Australia. We had a powered site right near the creek bed and the boys loved exploring. The hike up to the homestead and then on to the lookouts was perfect for our family to do. Loved that each campsite had a fire... More
