I wish I could have spent more time. The hotel is nice and staff courteous, but it is the hiking that makes place wonderful. I wanted to take a couple of more trails before I had to head home.

I have been wanting to do this place for ages. So perhaps my expectations were higher than they should have been. Or perhaps I need to do a scenic flight as someone else suggested to feel the full grandeur of the pound.
I am glad I’ve done it but it just wasn’t as spectacular as I thought it would be. I reached the top and simply went oh is that it, rather than wow. I’m normally a wow person to most things.
I did the Wangarra lookouts only today. And it’s forecast rain tomorrow so I think that will be Wilpena pound done for me. The bus wasn’t running as there was no driver.
They say allow 3hrs return and it was pretty accurate. If you can, keep going up past the lower lookout to the top lookout.
Most of the walk is through bushland so it’s pretty shaded. It’s a pretty walk with interesting information boards, particularly the ladies stories. After Hills Homestead you ascend to the lookouts and there are some nice rock face views as you go up. It was nice to have a snack with the whole place to myself later in the afternoon.

Highlight of the Flinders Ranges. Lovely walks and views. Great information boards. Fascinating relics of early history - indigenous and early settlers.

To see Wilpena Pound from the ground hiking in pkaces and driving all around is amazing, but to see it from the air was truly an incredible experience. 30 minutes of pure wonder!

Amazing place on earth. Beautiful scenery and wildlife.
Staff very friendly but maintenance of amenities needs attention.
Plumbing problems and general fixing of doors , needs attention.
But all in all a great part of the country. Do the plane ride or forever regret the experience.

We loved our visits to Wilpena pound. We did several of the walks over the course of a week and thoroughly enjoyed each one of them. Excellent signposts keep you on the right path. My Ohlssen Bagge is a challenge but so very worth it ( give yourself 4 hours to do it) . Rewards yourself with a treat at the IGA store in the visitor centre after your hike. The staff there are awesome. So very friendly and welcoming. Wilpena Pound and the whole National Park is simply breathtaking.

It is one of the most beautiful areas of South Australia, where the outback begins. Geological wonderland and an experience not to be missed.

This is as good a natioanl park as you will ever visit in Australia. Extremely well maintained, bitumen roads to/from and throughout, plenty of parking, range of accommodation, restaurants or self catering, groceries and fuel on site. Loads of walks for all levels of fitness. Has history and landscape to appreciate. Loved everything here.

Waling into Wilpena Pound, we enjoyed the quiet surroundings and the lovely scents from the native bush. The walk in was a reasonable distance, but a Toyota bus is available for those who cannot walk far. We climbed up to the two lookouts and really enjoyed the views

We had the unfortunate experience of staying here just before New Years - whilst the surroundings are amazing - the resort has a lot of room for improvement. The worst feature was the jumbo jet engine noise every time we turned on the light in in the family bathroom. Cleaning was also not high on their agenda nor serving quality food at the restaurant- we would not ever stay here again
