What a great spot for camping. We stayed for 2 nights and could have very easily stayed longer. It was peaceful, beautiful, and clean. They gave us the Valley view camping spot which was surrounded by hills and very private. The station accommodates both tent camping and campers with most spots secluded. The showers were better than average with abundant... More

Very cosy place to stay. We stayed at the Jackeroo cottage. There was just the 2 of us but perfect for a family with a few kids. Very friendly and helpful staff. Perfect location for Willpena Pound with the huge $$$$ for staying at the Wilpena Resort. Highly recommended and we will defiantly be staying there again.

We spent 4 nights at Willow Springs Station last week. Rented the Overseers Cottage and found it great for 2 people. The Reynolds Family were very welcoming. We enjoyed our time there, using it as a base to explore the Central Finders Ranges area. We did the Skytrek self guided four wheel drive route that runs through Willow Springs Station.... More

Love the 4wd track. Quite challenging in some parts but not to daunting if you don't have much experience. The scenery is spectacular. Be prepared to spend the majority or a full day doing the track to enjoy it properly though.

Stayed 3 nights and loved it. All the facilities you need there. Each camp site has a long drop and there is a shower and flush toilet a short drive away. The trek through the property was well worth the $60 spent for the car load. Well worth it. If you are there and have the vehicle to do it... More

Michelle Reynolds runs the 4WD part of the business and we were introduced via the owner of Rawnsley Park where we were staying. We did not therefore use Willow Springs accommodation. Skytrek deserves a separate entry in Trip Advisor In a new clean aircon Toyota 4X4 we travelled for well over two hours through stunning scenery, both gorges and peaks,... More

We didn´t stay at Willow Springs, but booked both the Central Flinders Tour and the Skytrek. What a wonderful experience, really the highlights in our first time Australia experience. Michelle showed us Central Flinders, gave us a great morning tea and took us to the Prairie Hotel for lunch. We were really impressed with her knowledge of the park and... More

Did the Skytrek tour yesterday and absolutely loved it. Amazing countryside and the commentary provided is both informative and interesting. Recommend it to anyone wanting a real Flinders Ranges experience. Brendan and Carmel are fantastic hosts.
