About Wilpena Pound Resort

South Australia 15 Eco Tents Resort

The destination

Wilpena Pound Resort is located in the Ikara Flinders Ranges National Park, South Australia (429 kilometres north of Adelaide). It is only accessible by sealed roads from Adelaide and Port Augusta, or via a Scenic Flight Transfer. Eco Structures worked with Grant in 2013 to provide a custom solution tailor-made to his remote accommodation requirements

The solution

The final design included 15 ensuited Eco Structures and a central dining facility, utilising two 6.3m permanent tents linked with additional decking to provide 120m2 of internal dining space.

We used Eco-Structures Australia for the 15 luxury ensuite tents as well as the large central dining and gathering place at Ikara Safari Camp in 2014. I am a fan of the Eco Structures system because while it’s an off the shelf, tried and tested solution, it also provided me with the flexibility to customise, refine and make it our own. Depending on the location and market segment mix, Eco Structures allows developers the freedom to explore highly individualised outcomes with a great deal of control over development costs.
