Situated in the arid, rugged Northern Flinders Ranges, Iga Warta is an experience not to be missed. The land here is rich with meaning and we were privileged to have Terry Coulthard interpret it for us through Adyamanthanha eyes. The highlight had to be the trip to a nearby Gorge with hundreds of mysterious rock engravings estimated to be 40,000... More

I recently enjoyed spending time here with the Coulthard family and enjoyed their hospitality immensely. Taking time to listen to the hosts and understand their experience as indigenous leaders helped me to think differently about land and history. Loads of campfire singing and time in the bush was fun. I camped in pre-erected two person tents on a mini swag.... More

dropped in to check out the place for a future stay as we are planning another visit to the area and didn't know anything about it. We reckoned on a quick look around but stayed for 90 odd minutes. After some initial reservation, we were quickly welcomed and encouraged to look around and much interest an conversation was had. The... More

We only stopped off in Iga Warta for some morning tea. We got that, no worries, plus a personalised tour of the property thrown in, with our guide being Terry Coulthard, one of two brothers of local Aboriginal heritage who had done a huge amount in establishing and building up the business. As we toured the property, Terry talked about... More

Our group of 4 couples looked forward to our time at Iga Warta so booked well in advance. On arrival it was difficult to get anybody to acknowledge or assist us. Eventually someone pointed out the camping area. We enquired about going on a tour and were told to return after lunch but given no information about the tour. At... More

Iga Warta offers visitors to the Flinders Ranges a comfortable place to stay, connect with the beautiful natural scenery and learn about local Aboriginal culture and history. I recently visited as part of a cultural awareness training program through a national organisation and took part in a some of the tours that are offered including including the nearby spectacular ochre...

What a beautiful and welcoming bunch of people! The safari tent accommodation and amenities block were all excellent. The tours are really worthwhile, we were privileged to share the history and stories from Terry and Cliff. Camp fires, clear starry nights, music...it doesn't get better than this!

I actually intended to visit the ranges for a couple of nights and ended up staying a couple of weeks! I was invited to do some volunteer work in exchange for meals, accommodation and cultural tours- what a bargain. Rustic (but warm) as others have mentioned, but as Cliff said one night around the fire 'I wonder what the rich... More

Brought a group of bush walkers here and we were taken on a walk to a fabulous gorge where we were introduced to the unique plants of this area and local Aboriginal culture. It was a terrific day. We also climbed the small mountain behind the resort where we had great views of the surrounding country. Everyone was very relaxed... More

We stayed with our kids, age 8 and 10, and were warmly welcomed. We stayed in the bush cabins which were self contained with toilet and shower and immaculately clean. They were a bit rustic, but this is the Flinders. Cliff took us on the Malkii tour which gave a great sense of the living culture of the Adnyamathanha people.... More
