Ancient and rugged moun­tain land­scapes, peace­ful tree-lined gorges and a sea­son­al wealth of wildlife. The sense of space unique to the semi-arid zone com­bine to make Ikara-Flinders Ranges Nation­al Park one of South Australia’s icon­ic destinations.

The park com­pris­es approx­i­mate­ly 95,000 hectares. It includes the Hey­sen Range, Brachi­na and Bun­yeroo gorges and the vast amphithe­atre of moun­tains that is Wilpe­na Pound. Expe­ri­ence the native wildlife, rich cul­tur­al her­itage, impres­sive geo­log­i­cal fea­tures, camp­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties and a range of activ­i­ties includ­ing bush­walk­ing, four-wheel dri­ving, bird­watch­ing, pho­tog­ra­phy and moun­tain biking.

We’re work­ing to improve this park with upgrad­ed facil­i­ties at Arka­roo Rock and in the future, at oth­er loca­tions such as the Brachi­na Gorge Geo­log­i­cal Trail.
