We were aware of the reputation that Rawnsley Park had for being a slick operation, but all too often slick operations have a penchant for becoming complacent, thereby dropping the ball. However,after our recent three-night visit in one of their cabins (not an Eco-Villa) we are pleased to report that the reputation is still justified. Immediately following that visit we... More

Fantastic rooms at fantastic prices, very clean with everything you need in the kitchen. Staff were all very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Meals at the Woolshed were absolutely beautiful. Overall a perfect place to base yourself for your Flinders adventures.

We chose to stay in a holiday unit at Rawnsley Park, rather than at Wilpena Pound. The price was better and the accommodation had all we needed. Comfortable bed, small kitchen, satellite tv, undercover parking. The views are stunning and it is only a short drive to Wilpena Pound.

Wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Having a NE aspect onto Rawnsley Bluff means that we get great colour on the Bluff in the evenings. More

We loved our stay at Rawnsley park Station., It has the most stunning views of Wilpena Pound. We lost many hours on the verandah, coffee in hand, looking at Rawnsley Bluff. One of the best things we did was take a tour with Tim. He knows a great deal about the area, and showed us many hidden gems. We were... More

What an amazing place this is and operated by fantastic people! Arrived to find we had been upgraded to the 'homestead' - did not have a clue what to expect until we were driven a couple of miles through the complex to the original farm house - complete with private pool. We're completely spoilt in the evening with one of... More

On arrival at Rawnsley Park, we were made very welcome.We were so thrilled with our Eco Villa named "Redgum", much more than we were expecting. We found to our surprise a complementary bottle of wine and an nice dip to enjoy before we attended a special lamb dinner held at the Woolshed Restaurant hosted by the station owners, Julie and...

Redgum Villa is one of my favourites, I have the same lounge for my house. As for that particular breed of sheep - they are Dohnes (Du-ne) that are a South African Merino with good quality wool and meat production. More

We spent 2 nights there, myself and three daughters. The girls were amazed at the amount of wildlife around and each night at dusk we went to check out the emus. We stopped and saved many shingle back lizards from being run over on the road, so be careful during the day as they come onto the road to sunbake... More

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
