South Australia’s Wilpena Pound Resort has become more accessible to guests with the launch of door to door flight services landing directly into Wilpena Pound Resort from Adelaide via Port Augusta.
The result of a new partnership by the Resort with Regional Express (Rex) Airlines and Wrights Air, Rex flights depart Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from Adelaide for a 55-minute flight to Port Augusta. Guests will then transfer on to a Wrights Air charter flight for a scenic 45-minute journey over the iconic 17km long Wilpena Pound, before landing at the Resort’s airfield.
“The new relationship forged with Rex is an exciting evolution for Wilpena Pound Resort, complementing our long-standing relationship with Wrights Air and making it even easier for our guests to access this amazing destination,” said Rebeca Davies, Resort General Manager.
“This partnership offers our guests the option to fly here in under two hours when the journey by road can take up to five hours.”
To celebrate the new flight connections, Wilpena Pound Resort is offering a launch special including flights plus bed & breakfast with rates starting from $998* per night. The offer is valid for booking and travel until 30 June 2018.
Wilpena Pound Resort offers traditional hotel rooms accommodating from two to six people; or a stylish ‘glamping’ option at Ikara Safari Camp offering 15 ensuite safari tents set in spectacular river red gums and native pines and adjacent to the Pound.
