Rawnsley Park Station

Wilpena Rd.
Hawker , Australia http://www.rawnsleypark.com.au/
61 8 8648-0030

Just a few hours north of Adelaide, the Flinders Ranges National Park is known for high peaks, cavernous ravines, and wildlife-dotted plains. Two years ago, Tony and Julieanne Smith turned part of Rawnsley Park Station, their 7,500-acre sheep-shearing outpost adjoining the park, into a stunning eco-retreat. Four villas, constructed with recycled timber and straw-bale insulation, have retractable canvas ceilings that open up to reveal starry skies. Two of the park’s biggest thrills are minutes away: Wilpena Pound, a 20,000-acre quartzite amphitheater, and the 500-foot sandstone face of Moonarie cliff, a rock climber’s dream.
