Wilpena Pound, Flinders Ranges National Park

4.5
#1 of 8 in Things to do in Flinders Ranges National Park
In the middle of the Flinders Ranges National Park, you'll find the huge natural amphitheater of Wilpena Pound. The Rocky peak here rise suddenly from the flat earth. Choose from a series of hikes of varying levels of difficulty through the surrounding bush. The location at the terminus of a sealed road 429 km (267 mi) north of Adelaide lends this spot a sense of isolation, but you can find nearby accommodations. For a bird's-eye view of the amphitheater, hop aboard one of the small airplanes departing from the airstrip at the Wilpena Pound Resort.

  • It is a bit aangeharkte nature with nicely marked walks, but that does not detract from the beauty! Follow the purple route to the lookout and you can imagine yourself in a crater in Africa where any time a giraffe or elephant can walk through the picture. That you won't see but with a little luck you come in addition to the usual suspects fanatische birds, iguanas and snakes.
