We stayed over the Easter period and could not find a proper pitch it was that full, we ended up squeezing in on an slope at the side. We climbed to the top for a wonderful view at sunset and the next day enjoyed a hike in the Pound which was spectacular. Kangaroos came to visit us right next to...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 26 January 2017 via mobile

We spent 5 days here in September and the staff couldn't have been more accomodating if they tried. Wonderful selection of food at breakfast (hot, cold healthy and not healthy!!) and evening meals to cater to differing budgets with reasonable prices given the remoteness of location. The rooms were clean and tidy and comfortable with great storage for all of...

We stayed in one of the cheaper onsite tents near the toilet block. When we arrived the tents had not been cleaned since the last visitors and were filthy. Also, they did not provide many of the things that should have come with the tent. Then we discovered that the toilet block was filthy as well. Given the number of...

We stayed at Wilpena Pound Resort during our tour of the Flinders and Northern Flinders Ranges over Easter, while the accommodation is adequate the food in the Restaurant "ok" the service is TERRIBLE!!!! Even making the allowance for a busy time of year our meals were nearly an hour late and not that hot - not good enough. Lift your...

We camped in an unpowered site and loved it! We were surrounded by wildlife and had kangaroos and magpies come to visit. Emu's were wandering around too! The ablusion areas are pretty basic and rundown but it is in the middle of nowhere and the quality of the showers (ie lots of hot running water!) were great! Heaps to do...

This is a stunning location and the hotel owned by Accor but run by the local indigenous people is well placed to be really successful. Our stay over two nights highlighted some of the shortcomings which really amount to lack of good training for the staff, who are well meaning and try very hard. However the staff need to see...

WPR is a great place to stay to experience the outback. Plenty of walking on well marked trails and activities offered by them, so you can really get to see the surrounding areas and local wildlife. We took the sunset 4WD trip and had a really nice evening. The rooms are very basic (you are in the middle of the...

The campsite was said to be for 8 people. However with 2 cars, 4 swags and 4 camp chairs the site was full and there was no room to move around. We had to share a camp space with other people which means we had to be quiet rather early to our disappointment as we would have like to have...

My Wife and I stayed here for 3 days. Over this time we found staff fantastic and very helpful. The accommodation is very close to the hiking trails, which suited us. We hiked to St Mary's peak on the inside trail, the first 8km is quite easy and we'll marked. The next 4 km is over loose stones and can...

We thoroughly enjoyed the Time Travel and Gorgeous Gorges Tour with our host Michael. We were lucky enough to be his only 2 guests, as the larger vehicle was full. We were privileged to benefit from Michael's knowledge and experience of Wilpena Pound and surrounds. He knew about the geological history and connected his narrative to the stories of the...
