This was our second visit to Rawnsley Park Station and its Eco-villas, our first being on a guided tour in 2011. We stayed for only one night but vowed to return and had 4 nights in April this year. The Eco-villas are priced very reasonably for the quality they deliver. Tony Smith is the 4th generation owner of Rawnsley Park... More

The Rawnsley Park Station Eco Villas are an outstanding example of how hard work and persistent development by family owner/operated enterprise in outback hospitality can deliver a high quality package across all the elements of accommodation, tours, restaurant, staffing. As others have said, the eco villas are excellent, comfortable units and the setting is obviously very unique. The breakfast foods... More

Thank you for the positive feedback. One thing that we have learned over the last 30 years is that you need people that "want to be here" and have a commitment to maintaining consistent service. Thank you to all the staff at Rawnsley Park that have contributed. More

My partner and I recently stayed for 3 nights. Fantastic setting, cabins are very clean, comfortable and well stocked with everything you could want. Easy drive to Wilpena Pound etc. Variety of walking trails from the park that were really nice. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Cannot recommend Rawnsley Park more highly

We spent 3 really wonderful nights in one of the 29 Units at Rawnsley Park which is a working sheep station plus Resort /Camping experience . The units are of good standard & have all the facilities required . There is a small store & petrol at the Camping ground with basic items . The Woolshed Restaurent provides good meals... More

We stayed in one of the eco-villas, and absolutely loved it. The setting is incredibly beautiful, and we had fantastic views from the villa. It was very comfortable, well-equipped, spacious, and we felt very well looked after (loads of breakfast foods and other items were provided for us). Staying at Rawnsley Park was the highlight of our whole Australian trip... More

At the end of a long holiday, staying at many places throughout Australia, this was one of our favourites. Our self contained unit was warm and comfortable and had everything we needed. We are not sure if it had laundry facilities available because we didn't need to wash clothes over the course of our 3 day stay. There were a... More

We stayed in a self-contained unit and it was very clean and spacious with a nice wide verandah to enjoy the wonderful view of Rawnsley Bluff. The bed was very comfortable and the decor first-class. There are plenty of opportunities for walks at the Station, either easy or moderate for those who aren't regular bushwalkers and it is only a... More

We started and finished our Flinders Ranges By Bike trip at Rawnsley Station in self-contained unit accommodation.

This was our second experience at the eco villas. We loved our stay and will definitely return (again). The ambience of the villas and the location amongst the pines and nature and peacefulness is just perfect. Maybe they are a little pricey as has been mentioned, but it depends what you are looking for - I love going back to... More

Plenty of space but the price was a bit over the top compared to what we have paid for similar arrangements on our road trip. Cooking utensils were a bit wanting, especially trying to cook for a family of four, pots and pans not big enough.

Thank you for your comments. We know that the eco-villas are quite pricey, but the capital cost of this accommodation is also pricey. We have added a couple of larger cooking utensils to the 2-bedroom eco-villas. More
