3 Boutique Retreats

Rawnsley Park Station: Flinders Ranges
If you can imagine waking up on a brisk winter’s morning, rugging up in your winter warmers and sitting on the balcony while you drink your morning coffee, only to have your breath taken away by the Flinders Ranges, then Rawnsley Park Station is where you should be. By day, take a balloon flight over the spectacular Wilpena Pound, and by night dine next to the warmth of Rawnsley’s Woolshed Restaurant’s fireplace.

Spicers Tamarind Retreat: Maleny
Nestled in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, just nearby Maleny, lies a tranquil paradise perfect for an intimate and luxurious winter getaway with someone special. Here you can do as little or as much as you want. Relax in your own private outdoor cedar hot tub, while listening to the sounds of the waterfall and abundant wildlife, then dry off in front of the fire place or even learn how to cook Thai cuisine at Spicers Tamarind Retreat's restaurant.

  1. Hi,

    This is an amazing place to visit. We stayed at wilpena pound resort, the most beautiful thing we did is we hired a flight to see the Wilpena Pound from the air. It was an amazing experience.
