Me and my boyfriend went with a tour group (Heading Bush, I advise you book with them if you haven't much time) at the beginning of October. We went on a 3 day tour up through the flinders ranges an stopped at rawnsley park station (location idyllic, right underneath rawnsley bluff of the pound). The view from anywhere is just breathtaking. The flat plains surrounded by the wilpena pound, elder range and chase range. If you have more than a few days to spare, take a 4WD up there yourself and venture round. There's so many walks and things to see. You can get inside the pound through a couple of locations by car or you can walk in through and over the pound. From the wilpena pound resort, you can camp here, you can go on the hills homestead walk, that takes you through some lovely woodland to the last Homestead that attempted farming in the pound. The walk takes you right into the pound and takes about 2 hrs but we cut it short and went up the wangara lookout. Takes about an hour depending on fitness. There's two lookouts here, you can just about see the curve of the pound but not quite, but still the views of fantastic, the 45 degree angle of the pound jutting out with the elder ranges just peaking through. If you have got time on your hands I believe there are plenty of walks for the best views. You can find the information at the wilpena pound centre which has a small cafe, camp supplies and toilets. The best view to see the whole pound is the 8 hr round trip up to st Mary's peak. There's a few little airports around that take you over the point itself, and further to lake eyre. It was about $175pp for 45 mins. We didn't do this, but we wish we had the time to do so. There's loads of wildlife about, particularly lizards so keep you eyes peeled. It's worth at least 2 full days at the pound and another 2 in the surrounding area, such as arkaroo rock, and aboriginal site. And take the drive through bunyeroo gorge, which has breathtaking paranamic views of the pound. Head down into the branchina gorge for some walking to spot the very cute and rare yellow-footed wallabie. Theres a vechile entry of $9 and they may be a $6 for walkers. The Henson trail also begins up here. This is worth the visit if you in south Australia.
