The setting is wonderful. The tent was clean and having a shower and toilet as part of the set up is great. What stops this being a ‘glamping’ experience is the lack of small and detailed things eg the electric kettle lead is too short, the restaurant etc is closed on a Monday and Tuesday. Finally the zips to open and close the tent are extremely fragile, sometimes not working at all making it very frustrating. There is even a note to the effect on the key ring so it is a problem that should be fixed. Do get to the Flinders Ranges it is unique and wonderful.

Rather run down. Not managed locally. Managed from Queensland by a company not contactable by phone. Very few rooms opened for business.

I booked room which was advertised with 1 queen bed, 2 bunk beds and sleeps 6. But room was 1 queen and 2 single beds. We were 2 people so it was ok but i price if both rooms were different. I just felt I paid for 6 bed apartment but got 4 bed apartment which was cheaper on price I paid 200+ but 4 bed one was on 160+$ price
