Wilpena Pound Resort is situated in "the Heart of the Flinders Ranges" in Outback South Australia. The scenery is spectacular with mountains and gorges providing new breathtaking views at every turn. Ideal place for walkers, the National Park trails are well defined, easy to follow and have varying degrees of difficulty - the highlight being the climb to the summit of St. Mary's Peak. Wildlife abound, with kangaroo, euro, emu and an enormous variety of birdlift to be seen year round. The smallest of finches and the largest of Eagles all call the Flinders 'home', as do the mobbing corellas and galahs. The accommodation is adjacent to the swimming pool, bar and beer garden. The bar serves icy cold beer and the restraurant services great value meals - the ideal place to celebrate and relax.
