As travel restrictions put overseas holidays on the back burner for a while, now’s the perfect time to hit the road and explore South Australia.
And what better way to see our stunning regions than a weekend staycation?
From converted shipping containers to luxury eco-lodges, these locations will get you back in touch with nature without the hassle of pitching your own tent.
1. Rawnsley Park Station, Flinders Ranges
Overlooking the stunning Wilpena Pound, the eco-villas at Rawnsley Park Station are the perfect place to recharge your batteries.
The Flinders Ranges might be a slightly longer trek for those looking to escape just for the weekend, but these rentals are worth the drive.
Guests can take in breathtaking views from their very own private verandah and swimming pool, which is open during the warmer months.
You can even gaze at the sparkling night sky from the comfort of your bed, thanks to a retractable ceiling.
But it’s not just the views that’ll make your trip to Rawnsley Park one to remember.
The self-contained eco-villas boast fully equipped kitchens, luxurious bathrooms, spacious living areas and paintings by local artists.
And if you’re keen to discover the region’s wildlife, Rawnsley Park also offers smaller holiday units which provide the ideal base for exploring.
