    Waling into Wilpena Pound, we enjoyed the quiet surroundings and the lovely scents from the native bush. The walk in was a reasonable distance, but a Toyota bus is available for those who cannot walk far. We climbed up to the two lookouts and really enjoyed the views

    Tip: download Flinders Ranges App. Self drive with alerts to arrival at points of interest, and information about locations.

    It is a short drive from the main road to the carpark and even though my travelling companion and I did not walk up to the Aboriginal artwork we enjoyed our picnic lunch in the are at the start of the walk.

    Beautiful drive through relatively narrow gorge, at times along dry creek bed. Fantastic geology and scenes of rugged rock strata and cyprus pine hillsides. Well worth the effort to drive this gorge. Fairly well maintained dirt roads, 2wd suitable in good conditions.

    This was a really wonderful venture back into the canyon. Its a real shame that some foolish and ignorant individual decided to vandalise the site thus causing its closure other than by a paid tour from Wilpena now. The tour was great anyway with the local guide giving great insight into the area. Its really worth the visit and it really does feel 'sacred' when you are in the actual canyon. It is a little pricey (but you can thank the highly educated idiot for that) but the money goes back into the community so thats fine.

    This is a brown direction sign on the highway you should not ignore. Short, less than kilometre gravel road, to wonderful homestead ruins. Plenty of information panels to allow an appreciation of the history and hardship of these pioneers. Free to savour and likely have the place to yourself.

    A great experience to go underground and learn what life was like back then. The tour is very well set up and takes about 2 hours but it is well worth the effort to go. Our tour guide was great and was very accomodating when we arrived with 3 more people than we had booked for.

    Yet another great gorge to walk through and marvel at the colourful walls and weathered caves that make up the area.
    After a small entry point it was possible for people of all ages to wander along the river sighting fresh water crocs and birdlife.
    Several indigenous youths were playing and fishing off the rocks with no fear of the small crocs looking on. Further along we passed an older lady patiently sitting with her fishing line and happy to be photographed.
    Another memorable experience from and action packed trip.

    Superb aerial tour of the Flinders Ranges, Lake Eyre South and Lake Torrens on Monday 16th, 2022. The guide and pilot did a great job in commentary and flying. Flew mainly at 5000 feet with a nice low run over Lake Eyre South towards Williams Creek for lunch. An all day (7 hour) trip. Highly recommend this trip and air charter company to others who want to explore and appreciate the great.

    We stayed in the Horse-yards Campground, about 23 km from the Station itself, off the Parachilna Gorge road. Magnificent river red gums along the Blinman Creek. We had our own pit toilet & absolute privacy (there are 4 campsites, spaced well apart). This campground is only accessible to paying guests - we were given a key for the gate which we returned when we left. Sally gave us useful information about what there was to see/do on the Station itself as well as in the area.
    Sunset Hill is a must see on the property- panoramic 360 degree views of the central Flinders & beyond (Lake Torrens in the distance). We were able to drive to Nungawurtina Hut where we walked to the Blinman Pools. Much of the walk is through creek beds where the geology is just fascinating. We also took the opportunity to drive to Chambers Gorge to see the stunning petroglyphs of the Adnyamathanha.
    Sally was kind enough to pick us up from Blinman when we got lost walking through creek beds! We camped off-grid which was fine as the weather was just right. Ample firewood to be gathered & plenty of fire-pits to use. Star gazing was magical! Looking forward to staying there again. Highly recommended.
