Set within a well-appointed glamping site situated within the Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park, the tents provide guests the opportunity to explore some of South Australia's most spectacular landscapes and take advantage of a wide variety of outdoor recreation options, while at the same time enjoying a full range of amenities for their comfort, convenience, and pleasure.

Scenic flights are definitely the best way to appreciate the grandeur of the surrounding area. Guests can get a bird's eye view of the gigantic caldera like Wilpena Pound, and the majestic Flinders Ranges as they stretch into the distance like a gigantic natural backbone.
