My wife and I spent 4 days at the Australia Walkabout, loved it. We stayed at the Barossa Room, spacious, love the spa whirlpool and the bed is comfortable. Great hospitality from our host Lynne, excellent cook, loved her breakfast. Totally recommend to anyone.

Lynn, the owner was very friendly, hospitable and helpful and we were treated to delicious gourmet breakfasts.

Enjoyed our stay here when we came to Lancaster for a wedding. The room we had was very comfortable (Adelaide suite) and I really enjoyed the sleep number mattress! Breakfast was also good as was the conversation we had with our hosts. Only wish we could have stayed another day! Thank you for your hospitality! Glad to have your mugs... More

I have been coming here for several years and it has been a great place to stay while I visit my mother, who lives in the area. The innkeepers (Lyn and Bob) are always friendly and helpful; visiting Lancaster seems like visiting them as friends. Breakfast is always different on any given morning but it is consistently excellent. Convenient, quiet,... More

Spent a week at the Australian Walkabout for a personal retreat. Stayed in the Adalaide Hills suite. Very comfortable. The bed is a sleep number bed. Nice sitting room area with a small fridge. Air conditioner in the bedroom but it adequately cooled the sitting room as well. The bathroom features a whirlpool tub/shower combo. The tub is quite deep... More

Husband and I stayed here and chose a room with an extra sitting room. Room was cozy and appreciated the sleep number mattress. Sheets were heaven. Innkeeper made a point of going out of her way to make us comfortable from the moment we crossed the threshold. Asked what we planned on doing while in town and made several suggestions... More
