Fantastic Flinders Ranges, South Australia
May 2013 • Friends
We enjoyed 5 days at Spear Creek Station Caravan Park in the Flinders Ranges, South Australia.
There is so much to see within walking distance of the Caravan Park and if you do the tag-along sunset drive with the Manager, Graham, you will enjoy a beautiful sunset and great 360 views. We also drove to Wilmington and had lunch in the Beautiful Valley Cafe and got excellent service from the very friendly staff. There is a Toy Museum in Wilmington which is well worth a visit and a local craft shop as well as the Hotel. We drove a short distance out of Wilmington to Hancock's Lookout which is a local landmark and great views across to Port Augusta and Port Pirie.
Back at Spear Creek Caravan Park we walked up to the old shearing shed which is no longer in use but gives you a great feeling for the history of the Station which is now renowned for its Dorper lambs which are grown for their meat as the sheep graze on Saltbush and this gives a special flavour and tenderness to the meat. Spear Creek also offer a lunch of bbq lamb for a very reasonable cost and we enjoyed this with a very good range of salads and we were able to byo our wine. At the caravan park we were able to have a camp fire in the designated area and fire wood is available from the Caravan Park at a reasonable price. There are also cabins available for rent and these are really well set up for a family or a couple and they also have a nice patio area for a bbq.

Great country
Aug 2012
The country scenery changes all the time and the ranges themselves are stunning. As good as anywhere in Australia, I feel, and I have seen a lot of the interior. We visited several sites and enjoyed them all. Especially good in winter as it is greener and prettier for photos.

Outback experience
There are some fantastic B&Bs in this area that offer old world ambience as well as lovely home cooked meals with characters and commentary. Some beautiful walks ranging from quite short to several kilometers as well as tiny villages to stroll through and check out the local wares. Sp[ring and Autumn offer the best weather.

Don't just drive past, stop a while.

There are so many activities offering in the Southern Flinders, so it is well worth basing yourself at one of the little towns, such as Melrose, Quorn or Peterborough entering the Flinders Ranges National Park area. Basing yourself at Melrose, which has a range of accomodation, some with distinctive character, you can explore the Mt Remarkable National Park which means walking Mt Remarkable itself or doing a daytrip in nearby Alligator Gorge, where you will walk deep down into a gorge through red rock canyon like gorges. This is a suitable walk for children and adults alike. If based in Quorn, again there is a range of interesting accomodation, the Pichi Richi Railway runs during during school holidays and is a must for steam train buffs. There is also an interesting public garden with plants and trees from the arid zone. Peterborough, to the NE was once a town where rail was king and this heritage is preserved. Then there are the port towns of Port Pirie, Port germain and others which offer fishing and other coastal attractions. There are many other little towns and localities in this area which are well worth visiting. This whole area offeres a snap shot particularly of early Europeon farming settlement, with it's successes and stories of hardship along with it's remote location. Visit the following website for much more detail on the area.
