At the edge of Flinders Ranges and after a long bumpy drive, we chowed down on burgers: steak, kangaroo and camel. Also ate a platter of emu pate, camel salami, kangaroo bits, and veggies to go with cold beers! Different eh? And very expensive!

We've stayed here twice now, eaten there on tours and will use it as a base for our next trip to the Flinders Ranges. If you're interested in Aboriginal art, there is a carefully selected collection of works for sale, mostly hung in the dining room so you get several chances to look at them. There really isn't anywhere else... More

A very well run pub - make sure you book a room and even for dinner though, as this will make sure they are open. As it's a long drive to something else. Stayed on my way north, steak for dinner cooked perfect, and nice red wine to go with it. A backpacker signing acoustic at the bar. Lachie is... More

We visit the Prairie a few times a year and always make a booking! Last week we had a group of 7 for lunch including 3 kids and 2 chefs from Melbourne! A table was set ready for us, menus, waters etc in place and staff to welcome and look after us. The whole experience was great as always! Fresh,... More

Our group of 4 had just driven 12 hours from the Birdsville Races to the Prairie Hotel in Parachilna for the advertised official after party and recovery from the races. We arrived at 8:45 pm to see the very beautiful old pub with a band singing out the front and a small bonfire fire. When we went inside for dinner... More

My wife and I stayed last weekend at the Prairie Hotel. Welcomed by Lachy who was a fantastic host during our whole stay. Food was amazing. Wine selection was particularly brilliant. Our room was spot on for what we needed, quiet at night, spacious, great shower. All you need. I would try the Fargher Lager. If you are in the... More

This would be our 3rd experience over the last several years doing a booked lunch.Found this time round to be a very rushed experience.On arriving early to let our friends enjoy a drink in the front bar before having our lunch were told we had better order straight away as they were expecting to be very busy so we did...

All lovely and great fun to try the native delicacies. After which we went back outside to star gaze. Had and interesting drive back seeing hundreds of roos in... More

Large group of us visited the Prairie, looking forward to the experience. Unfortunately we were all a little dissapointed - service was pretentious and bordering on poor 'we don't do high-chairs!', food was ok, atmosphere was good, everything was a little pricey, must say that the waffle desert was delishious. Glad we went so we can cross it off the... More

Wonderful place, I love it. Vintage interior, real outback place in the middle of nowhere, very friendly staff. We had emu burger, tender and delicious kangaroo pastroma, fabulous emu pate, hot camel mettwurst, goat cheese and chilli jam. It was gorgeous.
