Amidst the vibrant colours of the 800 million-year-old quartzite and limestone outcrop that is the Flinders Ranges lies Wilpena Pound, a natural amphitheatre 17km long and 7km wide. Located just to its east, you'll discover Wilpena Pound Resort, the perfect base for exploring this diverse and fascinating region.
Wilpena Pound Resort is built on the banks of Wilpena Creek just outside an entrance to Wilpena Pound. In this natural bush setting, native flora and fauna abound. With just 60 rooms, the resort blends well into the landscape and provides comfortable accommodation for exploring the Flinders Ranges. Rooms are 'hotel style' and come in either standard (1-2 people) or deluxe (3-4 people). Rooms have either a soft seating area or table and chairs. All have tea and coffee making facilities and air conditioning.
The Restaurant is open for breakfast and dinner daily with a variety of dining options on offer. Choose from a light continental to a hearty country breakfast. In the evening, the menu offers a choice of modern Australian cuisine with a touch of the Outback. Poddy Dodger's Bar is open from midday to late daily for drinks and refreshments, serving bistro-style meals and light snacks during the day. In the evenings, this is the hub of the resort where tales of the days activities are shared.
The resort has a swimming pool, and small general store with fuel. Nature walks into 'The Pound' are accessed directly from the resort.
