Our tour of Wilpena Pound and surrounding Ranges was wonderful, with very interesting scenery, warm weather and largely uncrowded roads. Be prepared to get a little dusty as most of the roads to the interesting attractions are dirt, which in my opinion adds to the appeal, I hope they NEVER seal them.

This is a must see destination for anyone travelling in Australia. The scenery is stunning, animals and birds are everywhere and it is a significant indigenous region too! So much to do and explore, you wont be disappointed!

The pound is a place to walk, sit and allow yourself to detox from the day to day. Down tech and get back to the amazing Wonder's of nature.

We spent an afternoon at Wilpena walking into the Pound. Saw emus everywhere and the views across the Pound from the lookouts are great. The walk in along Wilpena Creek is very enjoyable with huge river red gums and emus at every turn.

That magical place makes you wonder why you did not arrive earlier. Stunning views, many native animal sightings and how spoiled are we to be allowed experiencing things like this.

I really wanted my 18yo daughter to experience outback SA and this was the most amazing place to base ourselves. Amenities, staff, food - all excellent. We stayed in a unit - but would recommend the tents.

It's certainly worth while the ride from Adelaide. Amazing mountain formations which change their colors as the daylight changes. And a lot of wildlife around. Be careful that you don't stumble over Kängurus!

The wide open space and grassy outback with Kangaroo and Emu running free is just what my family holiday. We were fortunate with the weather and the pound presented itself to us at its best on a day not crowded with other tourists. We had a nice bottle of wine with cheese and fruits picnic on a high point and... More

It was a wonderful place to visit especially once you've hiked it to the top and overlook the the pound. However, if you aren't a Telstra 5G customer, you won't have any reception so be aware.
