    Wonderful Wilpena

    Wilpena Pound Resort... friendly, helpful staff. Accomodation comfortable with kitchenette enabling us to have some meals in apartment. Ample tours to book to explore the area. We did the Sacred Canyon tour. Fabulous insight into the history & culture of the area. We also enjoyed a walk along one of the trails. Disappointed we did not have more time. Will definitely return. We enjoyed a great dinner at the resort restaurant. Highly recommend.

    In Touch with Nature

    We really enjoyed our stay. Pity it was only one night in transit. Room was fairly basic but adequate. Restaurant excellent. Lovely dinner & breakfast. We hope to return and enjoy the many bush walks.

    A Little Disappointed

    We stayed in the Safari Tents, and were disappointed- at the cost of $320.00 per night, not worth it. Unfortunately the service was lacking, probably due to staff problems.

    A good location to visit but the resort is not

    The accommodation could be better by having an upgrade. Door in our unit doesn't lock properly; linen/towels didn't get replaced not until you've asked.Neither it was clean at all. One of our friends tv doesn't even work. For the rate they charged, service could be better. I would say it's overprice given to nil customer service.

    Amazing scenery

    Wilpena Pound is an amazing place to explore. The resort is a bit tired but clean and comfortable. Our flight to Lake Eyre and over Wilpena was breathtaking.

    Good value & worth the stay

    I did enjoy it. I do feel the rooms need an overhaul - door knob difficult in my unit, some cracked paint work in the bathroom, dead insects behind the TV cabinet. Staff so helpful. Evelyn in dining was exceptional, having to do most of the work because the younger girl (Mikayla) helping really had no idea on the ordering side of things. However, she was excellent on the waitressing side of things. Check in & out ladies great. Excellent menu.
