The Flinders Ranges rises from the northern end of Spencer Gulf,
in the east of South Australia, and runs north for 800 km. It is a
fantastic area for bushwalking, flora and fauna, and soaking up the
ever-changing colours of the outback. The mountains in the north are
hemmed in by barren salt lakes.
The best-known feature of the ranges
is the huge natural basin known as Wilpena Pound which is ringed by
1,000 m cliffs. Other attractions include Alligator Gorge in Mount
Remarkable National Park, Brachina Gorge, and the ironstone capped
ridge known as the Great Wall of China.
Winter is a pleasurable time to visit,
with spring offering the beauty of the wildflowers. For those planning an
