Went for a three night stay at Easter with my son in one of the Eco units. The first thing to say is that the location is spectacular, with the station itself (a working sheep farm) deep within the Flinders and adjoining the jewel that is Wilpena pound, which is close by and dominates the view (it changes colour and...

Cant begin to say what a wonderful time we had here with our friends, we stayed 2 nights and went on tours around the flinders, it was very hot, at night we sat under the stars waching the milky way and eating choc.

Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay with friends - even though it was hot during the day. Just goes to show how good it is when the glass is half full. More

Our family stayed here for 3 nights. It was kind of odd at first, so far from anything we knew but then we loved it, a special atmosphere. We stayed in the cabins which were really cosy, simple but all we needed. It's a bit further than you think from Wilpena, but really good in a different kind of way.... More

Pleased to hear that you got into the spirit of the Outback while you were at Rawnsley. It sounds like the kids enjoyed the sense of freedom you get when you have plenty of space. More

We really enjoyed our stay in the Eco Villas at Rawnsley Park. The views were absolutely spectacular and the villas were well spaced out and designed to provide that feeling of peace and tranquility. We did feel that the price per night ($400) was too expensive for what you got. Whilst we found the villas to be comfortable, I wouldn't... More

We stayed in one of the cabins for 1 night after camping in the national park. The cabin was comfortable with a double and single bed, kitchen facilities and bathroom. There was not much of an outlook from our cabin but we went to the Woolshed Restaurant for dinner, where the outlook and food were superb. Rawnsley Park Station is... More

We were 2 couples and decided to stay in one of the holiday villas, not the eco villas, deciding not to stretch the budget as were on a 6 week trip. No regrets the villas were perfectly comfortable us and pricing was very good value. Really enjoyed using the BBQ's in the evening and watching the wildlife wander and fly... More

We stayed in a cabin which was quite spacious, clean and has a great verandah with views of the ranges. Cheaper than Wilpena Pound, although Wilpena is more up market but doesn't have the views. The restaurant "The Woolshed" was outstanding and quite surprising.

Good to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Andrew and Elizabeth are definitely delivering the real deal at the restaurant. I have just returned from Margaret River and did not find anything better. More

The trip up to Rawnsley fully justified the 900km return drive from Adelaide. The owners of this privately run estate have gone to considerable trouble to make this a real experience. The villas are superbly equipped, and have features such as remotely controlled skylights to view the stars from your bed. On arrival, we found a kangaroo under our balcony,... More

We were lucky enough to have four nights at this place, which incorporates a camping and caravan park, holiday cottages and eco lodges. The three sections are all completely separate so it's easy to get a sense of space wherever you stay. We had eco villa number 3 with a wooden deck on two sides, overlooking Wilpena Pound and the...

That says it all! Spent 4 days here enjoying bbqs on the terrace. An occasional roo would bound in front of the cabin. Only complaint was the limit on free wifi- come on guys - it should be free 24/7!
