The Flinders Ranges National Park is one of South Australia's most popular destinations. This area is world-renowned for its geological history, Aboriginal rock art sites, impressive fossil remains and its ruins of early European settlement. Aboriginal people have lived in the Flinders Ranges for tens of thousands of years. For the Adnyamathanha - the hills or rock people, the ranges are still of immense cultural significance. While geologists use science to explain the formation of the Flinders, the Adnyamathanha people understand the land through their Yura Muda stories, which endow the physical features of the ranges with spiritual meaning. The park is located in the Flinders Ranges between the townships of Hawker and Blinman. The park offers a wide range of activities for all interests. Drive through the scenic Bunyeroo Valley to the magnificent Brachina Gorge or hike some of the many walking trails of varying lengths and fitness levels including Bunyeroo Gorge, Bridle Gap and the challenging St Marys Peak. You can also enjoy camping (fees apply), bird watching and Aboriginal and European cultural experiences. Please refer to website for park entry and camping costs.
