The Vulkathunha - Gammon Ranges National Park is a rugged, remote park in the North Flinders Ranges. The park's deep gorges and chasms, towering ranges, tree-lined creeks and freshwater springs are havens 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 100 kilometres long and 40 kilometres 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, taking you past Mount McKinlay Spring or the Weetootla Gorge Hike which meanders though the stunning Gorge. You can also experience the park and its surrounding areas by car. Most tracks are accessible by two wheel drive, although the Wortupa Loop Track and the track to Lake Frome require four wheel drives. You will find designated camp sites located throughout the park and accommodation available at Grindells Hut, Nudlamutna Hut or Balcanoona Shearers Quarters. The Park is located 750 kilometres north of Adelaide. Vehicle entry fee applies. Camping fees extra.

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.

Talc Alpha Rink Outback Rep-Public Art Gallery, Lyndhurst, Flinders Ranges, South Australia

Talc Alpha Rink Outback Rep-Public Art Gallery

Talc Town Road, Lyndhurst, South Australia, 5732

This gallery houses an open-air talc stone carving display of about 60 permanent works of art, depicting the thoughts of Cornelis Johan (Talc Alf) Alferink. Talc Alf is an Outback character who has become a fixture for Uluru-bound backpackers and tourists. Talc Alf's Nissan hut home sits on a rise of red land. You can see a wind and bicycle powered washing machine in a shade house, and more talc statues than locals! For 35 years he has chipped away at his beloved talc and pursued an obsession for unravelling what he declares to be the true meanings of alphabets and word origins. It is possible to quickly summarise Talc Alf's theory - which he demonstrates to visitors - by taking random words and using a stick of talc to dissect them. Alf’s work includes recording the modern history of the district and country.
