Flinders Ranges

The ancient Flinders Ranges brim with fossils, indigenous artefacts and endangered native wildlife, with the odd 19th century sheep station watching over the arid slopes

Stretching from the coastal mining town of Port Pirie in the south to saline Lake Callebonna in the north, the Flinders Ranges are a discontinuous chain of mountains located inland, 450km north of Adelaide. This majestic range encompasses a crescent-shaped natural amphitheatre known as Wilpena Pound, as well as numerous vast nature reserves including historic Arkaba, a 19th century sheep station-turned-conservancy.

With its wondrous wildlife and spectacular landscapes, the Flinders Ranges possess all the defining characteristics of the great Australian outback. Renowned Flinders Ranges National Park is home to some of the state’s last remaining yellow-footed rock wallabies, various sacred Aboriginal sites as well as St Mary Peak, the eighth highest summit in South Australia. Parts of the epic 1,200km Heysen walking trail pass through this preserve, as does the 900km Mawson cycling trail.
