What a wonderful and unique place to stay. The history behind the town is absolutely incredible. How life was so different back then. Beltana is a wonderful overnight stay with magnificent views of the Flinders Rangers. Definitely well worth the visit - thank you. Make sure you make the walk out the old railway station and cemetery.

A truly beautiful place to visit.
Simply a beautiful place to be. Jan and the team have done a remarkable service to the entire community by bringing Beltana back to life. We had 3 nights here and should have booked longer. The entire ambiance of the area is uniquely Australian and when walking the town you can almost relive the times gone by. The facilities are lovey and clean and are a welcoming sight after a few days on the track. Do yourselves a favour and visit Beltana. You will not be disappointed. Also do t miss the Nilpena Ediacara Park fossil tour. Absolutely mind blowing.
