Built in the 1880's Meaney’s Rest is one of the oldest residential dwellings in Hawker. The original interior stonework highlighted by LED down lights reflects the majestic colours of the surrounding cliff faces within the local area. The original kitchen has been transformed into a relaxing outdoor room adjoining the barbecue area, with original fireplace and pressed tin ceilings. Even though the building is 1880's vintage, it maintains all modern amenities including an upgraded kitchen, bathroom with spa and modern furnishings. Free wifi, games console (retro Nintendo), Google Home devices and a selection of DVDs can help you while away the time if you so choose. Meaneys rest is central to all facilities including the Geoff Morgan art gallery and it’s famous panorama, local store, garage and local community gym. Spacious and comfortable this house is the perfect getaway to enjoy the magnificent Flinders Ranges. Under new management as of Sep 2017.

Kevin & Vicki are absolutely lovely people. The cottage was magnificent and was stocked so we wanted for nothing. The information provided in emails made our stay so much better. No surprises, everything laid out. Would gladly stay here again.

We loved our stay at Meaney’s Rest. Both owner Kevin and manager Vicki went above and beyond, literally saving us as we couldn’t get there due to road flooding! Beyond the exceptional service and communication, we would stay there again just based on the great accommodation. Everything was thought of, with lots of quirky and great touches. Beds were comfortable, fully stocked kitchen, close to an amazing restaurant and lots of space. Will be recommending this place to anyone who is going to the Flinders.

We absolutely loved our stay at Meaney’s Rest. It was extremely warm and cosy, a perfect place to come back to each day after exploring the Flinders Ranges. Especially after being fortunate enough to experience both seeing and playing with snow up through Wilpena Pound. Vicki was such a welcoming host. The house is very spacious, plenty of room for a family with teenagers. Looking forward to staying there again. Would highly recommend it! Thank you once again Kevin and Vicki.

We have just enjoyed five nights of comfort at Meaney’s Rest with our three young children and fully agree with all the glowing reviews that have come before us. We appreciated the warmth, well equipped kitchen and comfy beds after exploring this beautiful part of the world in chilly winds. The hosts have thought of everything to make your holiday relaxing. We recommend the short hike up Policeman’s Hill to star gaze.

Spent 8 nights here with friends walking the Heysen Trail. Lovely house, spacious, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Our friends really enjoyed the spa bath and Google Home! This is a great base for exploring the Flinders Ranges and with good eating out options in Hawker.
