Wilpena Pound, also known by its indigenous Adnyamathanha name of Ikara, meaning “meeting place”, is a natural amphitheatre of mountains located 429 kilometres north of Adelaide, South Australia, Australia in the heart of the Flinders Ranges National Park.
Just to the South of Wilpena Pound, Rawnsley Park Station provides the perfect base for exploring South Australia’s beautiful Flinders Ranges.
Rawnsley Park offers a range of accommodation options, from the eco-villas (with retractable ceilings in the bedrooms offering night-sky viewing while you drift off to sleep) to a caravan park.
You can also stay at the Wilpena Resort
The lovely folk at Rawnsley Park have a range of tours you can experience. We took the two hour Sunset on the Chase tour, a 40-minute drive to the top of the stunning Chace Range. Here we enjoyed sparkling wine and some gourmet canapes, all while watching the sun set over the ranges.
