Prairie Hotel

Restaurant and Cafe

Where the desert meets the Flinders Ranges, The Prairie Hotel, Parachilna, South Australia, is an icon of the Outback.

Local family owned and run, and licensed since 1876, The Prairie is a perfect base for exploring the Flinders Ranges and Outback or as a stopover enroute to outback tracks.

The Prairie restaurant is a regional beacon, renowned for its ‘feral fare with flair’, and innovative use of native ingredients across its restaurant menu. Whether choosing a feral antipasto platter, an FMG (Feral Mixed Grill), or a less feral seasonal speciality, the Prairie’s own ‘The Flinders Range’ condiments or local Ediacaran fossil inspired wine range, perhaps a ‘Fargher Lager’ brew, make perfect dining partners.

Alternatively enjoy a selection from the daily ‘grazing menu’, and a barista made espresso coffee.

The restaurant walls are quite a Gallery. Admire work by highly collectible indigenous and South Australian contemporary artists on your visit.

Relax with a pre-dinner tipple watching a Parachilna sunset from the front verandah. Locals and visitors, famous and infamous, you never know who you will meet at the Prairie!

The Prairie Hotel is 90 kilometres north of Hawker in the Flinders Ranges region.

The Prairie is closed until further notice, regrouping and adapting to COVID-19 conditions. We will respond to emails when possible, and look forward to offering fresh and safe experiences to Prairie guests soon.
