Vulkathun­ha-Gam­mon Ranges Nation­al Park was pro­claimed in 1970. The park forms part of the tra­di­tion­al coun­try of the Adnya­math­anha peo­ple and is rich with cul­tur­al sig­nif­i­cance. The spec­tac­u­lar ter­rain in Vulkathun­ha-Gam­mon Ranges Nation­al Park can be explored by the many hik­ing trails and via the 4WD tracks that lead you deep into the heart of the rugged land­scape. The park is a haven for many rare and endan­gered plants and animals.

The stark wild­ness and land­scape of Lake Frome is a unique fea­ture of the park. This ephemer­al salt lake stretch­es 100km long and 40km wide and plays an impor­tant role in the lives of the Adnya­math­anha peo­ple. The Plains Block’ lead­ing out to the edge of Lake Frome still remains a tra­di­tion­al hunt­ing ground.

There are sev­er­al hik­ing trails to explore the park includ­ing the Italowie Gorge Hike which takes you past Mount McKin­lay Spring or the Wee­t­oot­la Gorge Hike which mean­ders though the stun­ning Wee­t­oot­la Gorge.

There are sev­er­al tracks to explore the park and its sur­round­ing areas by car. Most tracks are acces­si­ble by 2WD, although the Wor­tu­pa Loop Track and the track to Lake Frome require 4WDs.
