Prairie Outback Lodge


Where the Outback meets the Flinders Ranges, the Prairie Hotel, Parachilna, South Australia, is an Australian icon. An unexpected oasis of refined accommodation, personalised experiences and authentic outback hospitality.

The Prairie Outback Lodge is a private haven within the Prairie Hotel. It is an intimate retreat of just 12 elegantly styled ‘country chic’ rooms with private lounge and courtyard areas for guests’ exclusive use.

The in-house brewery, gallery of collectible indigenous and eclectic contemporary art, remoteness of the location, views to rugged ranges and surreal sienna sunsets over endless red plains, and warmth of the welcome add unforgettable ambience to any stay.

All stays include daily hallmark regional dining experiences and country breakfasts.

Eating at the Outback Lodge is an occasion in it’s own right, curated by the Prairie’s Chef and delivered with gracious attention and renowned hospitality.

The Prairie’s signature dining includes feral, and indigenous produce amongst ‘non-feral’ options on a seasonal contemporary Australian menu served alongside the Prairie’s South Australian wine range or a cold beer brewed in the Prairie’s own onsite microbrewery.

Prairie Outback Lodge is the perfect base for exploring the Flinders Ranges, Nilpena Ediacara National Park, and beyond.
