The Steamtown Heritage Rail Centre is a museum with a difference. Visitors can relive the glorious days of the Australian railways in Steamtown Peterborough, in the Southern Flinders Ranges, where Australia's most unique rail heritage centre is located. The Steamtown Heritage Rail Centre was one of the main sites for railway maintenance, repairs and a major rail-transport hub in South Australia in its heydays with over 100 trains passing through each day and employing over 1000 people. The Steamtown Heritage Rail Centre is also home to South Australia's first and only sound and light show. This visual light and sound spectacle is presented after dark, while you sit in a comfortable 1916 historic rail carriage, now converted into a viewing car. On the daily continuously guided 1.5 hour tour you can get close to historic locomotives, trains, carriages and numerous freight vehicles. You can still feel the glamour of the roaring twenties, travelling first class through the Nullarbor in the opulent 1923 First Class Lounge car. The last guided tour commences at 3.30pm daily. Sound and light shows start after dark (7:30pm from April till October and 8:45pm from November till March). Bookings are essential AUD20.00 per person..

Iwantja Community is mainly Yankunytjatjara people living on the eastern side of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Lands, eight kilometres from the Stuart Highway in the far north of South Australia, on a dusty rocky ridge called Indulkana. Indulkana Arts Association started in the seventies. Initially used for secondary student's art lessons. Skills were learnt and the beginnings of a clear identity formed. People did traditional wood carving (punu), batik, patchwork, dying, painting and around the early eighties linoblock printing started. Over 100 prints and many drawings from that time are in the South Australian Museum. They are mainly monochrome using dreaming symbols. Later, artists worked with Studio One in Canberra where some multicoloured prints were developed. Iwantja Arts and Crafts moved into the Family Centre in January 1995. Since then Iwantja has gone from strength to strength on the basis of its strong cultural identity and impressive output.

Birdwatching, photography, bushwalking and canoeing are popular ways to enjoy the park's wilderness setting. Co-management of the park involves a partnership between the Government of South Australia and traditional owners to share responsibility and decision making for the strategic management of the park. A co-management committee (in accordance with a co-management agreement between the Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation and the traditional owners, Yandruwandha and Yawarrawarrka people) co-manage Malkumba-Coongie Lakes National Park.
