A brilliant stop-over if you're tourning the Flinders Ranges!
Seeing the weath was a bit cool, we didn't get to use the pool, but did enjoy the restaurant for dinner.
The lamb was fabulous and room and beds at the resort, very comfortable.
You can hike from here into the pound, arrange flights over the area and ranges or relax and enjoy the beauty of the Australian Bush.
Definitely worth a visit if you want to explore this amazing country.
