About Prairie Hotel

The Prairie Hotel, Parachilna, South Australia, is an unexpected oasis of luxury accommodation, fine food, craft beer, wine and relaxation amongst the red plains and blue skies on the edge of South Australia’s ancient Flinders Ranges and outback.

Local station family owned and run, and licensed since 1876, the Prairie’s Lodge is a perfect base for exploring the Flinders Ranges or as a stopover en-route to outback tracks. Visitors don’t drop into the Prairie Hotel for a beer, they book in advance to secure one of 12 exclusive rooms and a premium dining experience.

The Prairie Gallery-Restaurant is renowned for its ‘feral fare with flair’, and innovative use of native ingredients, Whether choosing a feral antipasto platter, an FMG (Feral Mixed Grill), or a less feral menu speciality, the Prairie’s own Ediacaran fossil inspired wine range, or a ‘Fargher Lager’ brew, make perfect dining partners.

Highly collectible indigenous and South Australian contemporary artists add to the restaurant ambience.

Coming in mid 2021 is the Prairie’s own microbrewery, cleverly installed in the refurbished Prairie Brew Bar.

Open now for Lodge accommodation and meals, the Gallery-Restaurant and Brew Bar are under renovation. Please check and social media for update on anticipated mid 2021 reopening. We will respond to emails when possible.

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