Magnificently restored

Meaney’s rest is a spacious 3 bedroom self-contained cottage that was built in 1883 and has been recently fully restored to it’s former glory, and more. It offers the luxury of all modern amenities combined with the charm of yesteryear.

The polished Baltic pine and solid Jarrah floors set against the spectacular local sandstone walls showcase the perfect atmosphere for a romantic weekend away, family holiday or getaway.

Meaney’s Rest is also the perfect location for a quick stop over or an ideal base from which to explore the many attractions and natural beauty of the Flinders Ranges; including the breathtaking peaks of Wilpena Pound (the highest mountain in the Flinders Ranges, St Mary Peak), the rich Aboriginal Heritage, the history of the old Ghan railway, the many wild flowers and a host of native fauna.

Located in the heart of Hawker, Meaney’s Rest is within very close proximity to the local shops, Hotel, pool, scenic walks, and Jeff Morgan Gallery (featuring a full panorama painting of Wilpena pound)

Meaney’s Rest provides all the amenities you need for your home away from home.
