On our road trip to Arkaroola we found a comfortable stopover just south of the town of Hawker. Windana Cottages offer every comfort in an outback setting with emus and kangaroos in your back yard and along the local walking trails. The cottage was neat and clean with all the modern facilities you could wish to enjoy during your stay....

The cottages are in a rural setting but within walking distance of Hawker and views of the Flinders Ranges. The new owners are friendly and very obliging. The cottages are clean and have all the necessary facilities including an outdoor B.B.Q and a fire pit great for the winter nights. We will definitely be staying there on our next outback...

Deb is a wonderful host in a glorious part of South Australia. The sunset was so colorful and the tranquillity is inspiring. Our cottage has everything we could want-including plunger coffee. I can't wait to see some of the lizards and other wildlfe the Deb was telling us about. Obviously, Deb loves this region-she has heaps of suggestions about activities...

So peaceful and tranquil - awesome sunsets. Didn't quite get to see the sunrise... Am looking forward to returning to see what changes happen. Very comfortable, has a washing...

We stayed for 3 nights in one of the cottages. After busy days of walking in Wilpena Pound or travelling around the Flinders Ranges it was wonderful to go back to the cottage and just sit outside and "drink in" the view, watch emus ambling by and the sun set. The kitchen has a full size fridge, stove and microwave...

Spacious and scenic stay for those looking for a place in/near Hawker (it's 2 km out) and a starting point for the Flinders Ranges. The kitchen is well stocked, which is useful because there are few services in the area! The unit is spacious and comfortable. I would confirm your reservations before arriving; somehow our reservation got lost between the...

Having visited the Flinders Ranges a couple of times (in the 1970s and 1990s), we chose Windana Cottages (Hawker, South Australia) as our Flinders Ranges base. Why Windana? We wanted a cost effective 'home base' for three days where we could reduce costs by cooking for ourselves and have the use of an outdoor barbeque, a novelty for city-based unit...

We stayed here for 4 nights and used this as our home whilst touring the Flinders Ranges. Great views from the Cottage and the near by Camels Hump. 30 mins to Wilpena Pound, 1 hour to Quorn and Blinman. Everything we needed was in the cottage, I might just add try and bring your own food up with you because...
