Over Wilpena Pound Resort

Het gezellige Wilpena Pound Resort ligt aan de Wilpena Pound, waar u onder meer kangoeroes, de Rock-wallaby en wilde bloemen aantreft. Nog nauwelijks door toeristen ontdekt is dit een heuse 'Aussie Outback'-ervaring.

"Had a pleasent one day stay."
Was a bit of a walk to our unit but worth it. Unit was clean and comfotable and the meals in the restaurant were nice with this special outback atmosphere. All in all we enjoyed the Resort and surroundings on our short visit.
The â€œresortâ€ is located very well in the South of Flinders. That was the reason we booked it. The edowie room we had was a disgrace, it is small, worn out. Way too much monet for what you are getting. You cannot call this a resort, it is a bungalow park, of the cheaper kind. The only surprise was the food which is really good, though expensive too. It is not a restaurant but more like a pub where you order your food at the counter, not very stylish. A coffee after dinner was not possible as he already cleaned the machine, so he did not have to do it later. Ridiculous. The pool is nice but freezing cold. Breakfast is good. I do not recommend this place at all. We stayed at a quiet time, do not want to imagine what it will be like when it is fully booked (1200 people).
"Stunning scenery and wildlife"
I have wanted to visited Ikara - Flinders for ages but have been put off by the drive from Adelaide thinking you would need 4 or 5 days, so it was a great surprise when my wife told me she'd booked an Ikara Safari Tent at Wilpena Pound for my birthday and Australia Day weekend. In fact the drive once out of metro Adelaide was really easy and quiet. January is quiet because of the heat an fire risk, an dyes it was hot - it got to 47. Luckily we had a tent that was as good as any hotel room, well far better as it was in the most gorgeous setting and (generally) absolutely peaceful. (We had an issue with a group of guys who partied til 2am one night which was selfish of them but didn't spoil our trip). Realising the partty was on the menu we asked to be moved to the back of the Safari site and the staff willingly obliged. We couldnt do the mammoth walks but Wangara Lookout, Stokes Lookout and Arkaroo Rock were all fantatsic and doable even in 40 degrees (with LOTS of water) There were hundreds of emus, roos, wallabies and birds with joeys - sadly close to or even sleeping on the roads. We didnt travel further north and were told most towns were 'closed in January' though there were scenic flights and 4WD tours on offer. We chilled out and ate and drank plenty, including at gas BBQs at the site. The pool was a draw especially before the Welcome to Country and Happy Hour! Breakfast was excellent and plentiful and all the staff we met were friendly and helpful. The nightly Welcome to Country was really good, with the Adnyamuthana guides doing a great job to explain their connection to this Country and the smbolism of the pound and other things in the area. Australia Day was mentioned as a sorry day for the Adnyamuthana (as all Aboriginal communities) though the spirit of looking to restoring the landscape and the future was poignant. Overall I had a fantastic birthday and would love to return and (despite the heat) hopefully on a weekend in January that celebrates all Australia, especially the special SA ancient country and cultures.
"Peaceful soujourn with nature"
We went on a three night glamping adventure in the Ikara Safari Tents. These are hardly tents in the traditional sense with kingsize bed, ensuite, reverse cycle air conditioning plus a deck, firepit and a refrigerator. Very comfortable!! Waking in the morning to views the walls of Wilpena Pound as well as heaps of wildlife was an amazing experience.
"Terrific Glamping Experience"
Recently visited with family for a 3 days clamping experience. we had a fantastic time. the Tents are first class, the resort area is super and the overall wilpena pound area is unforgettable. everyone was extremely helpful at the resort. nothing was an issue at all. would highly recommend.
