Four-wheel drive tours, scenic flights and mountain bike hire are all available from Rawnsley Park Station.  And we have a network of excellent bushwalking trails, suitable for beginners through to experienced walkers, located on the property.

If relaxation is more your thing, you can take a dip in our swimming pool, enjoy a leisurely meal at the Woolshed Restaurant or gather your friends around a camp bonfire.

"What a wonderful, glorious, refreshing and romantic setting. From the soak in the bath for the weary traveler, to the star-filled night lying in bed, and the breath-taking view at sunrise. Amazing!"

"What a fantastic place - walking in beautiful surrounds by day, returning to a perfect, peaceful & private retreat at night. Thank you!"

"5 stars, unique accommodation. Beautiful sunrise and sunsets with wildlife, mountain bike on the Mawson Trail, trail walking all around, everything was perfect. A place we will certainly recommend back home. The scenic flight is a must. Thanks to the hosts for this initiative of luxury in the outback."

"This is the best accommodation near the Flinders Ranges. The villas are excellent - big, well-designed, open plan, lots of glass, environmentally friendly."

"The Rawnsley Park Station Eco Villa turned out to be a terrific choice. There was a large kitchen/living/dining area and a separate bedroom. The kitchen was stocked with breakfast items (eggs, bread for toast, croissants, butter, cereal, yogurt, coffee, etc.) There was also a bottle of wine, brie and crackers that were provided compliments of management."

"Beautifully designed Eco-villas with all the elegant modern conveniences. Big bath (and shower), aircon (solar) for warmth or cooling as the temperature can change dramatically. Leather lounges, thoughtfully stocked kitchen. After traveling so far on unsealed roads, its a delight at the end of the day!"

"We had a wonderful time in one of the Rawnsley Park Eco Villas. They are so well situated that we couldn't see any other buildings from our verandah; just the stunning Finders Ranges scenery during the day and the most incredible sky full of stars at night."

"Excellent accommodation. We have a wonderful time. As soon as we can we'll be back. THANK YOU!"
