Flinders Ranges National Park is located around 470 kilometres from Adelaide. This ancient landscape is like a walk back in time to the Earth’s history. Here you’ll find the remnants of early European settlement, Aboriginal culture, ancient rock art sites and some of the world’s oldest fossils. The Flinders Ranges is the traditional home of the Adnyamathanha Aboriginal people. Many unique Australian animals and plants have adapted to this arid landscape and can only be seen in the region. Flinders Chase National Park on Kangaroo Island is another popular park where you’ll see a wide range of Australian native wildlife.
