Rawnsley, Ikari or Wilpena Pound resort

Interested in advice on where to stay for three nights in Flinders ranges. Don't think Ikari has any facilities for self catering so may really be choosing between the other two. Both seem pretty good. Is it better to be inside the pound?

We stayed at Rawnsley Park Station & loved it. We also went to Wilpena Pound too to check it out & do some walks. Both are pretty good - see my TR below which describes both in more details. You can't really go wrong with either IMO..

Wilpena Pound Resort isn't in the pound but is a short walk outside.

I thought it was fine, nothing special, but I wanted the location for my walks so I didn't have to get in the car when I did the St Mary's Peak walk etc.

But that said, rawnsley isn't exactly a long drive away!

I have stayed at all three and I would choose Rawnsley Park. Ikara is wonderful but as you say.. no kitchen to self cater...If you can afford it, the Eco Villas but if not then the units. The restaurant is great these days

These stories will show you the differences between Ikara and Rawnsley, Unsure if you've seen them but I always think Video stories are handy to look at when deciding so hopefully these may help?
