A dramatically beautiful area with a wealth of geological, wildlife and Aboriginal and European cultural heritage, wide range of outdoor recreational activities. Early pastoral ruins, Aboriginal art sites and extensive walking trails. Flinders Ranges National Park offers excellent bushwalking opportunities for all ages and levels of fitness, ranging from overnight treks and the long distance Heysen Trail to easy walks in Wilpena Pound. This is by the far the best way to truly experience the Flinders Ranges. Be sure to pick up a copy of the free park guide ‘Bushwalking in Flinders Ranges National Park’ from the Wilpena Pound Visitor Centre before you set off. Plan your walk accordingly, as there is little permanent water in the park. A series of marked trails and companion brochures are located around the park. The Heysen Trail, which extends for 1,200 km from Cape Jervis in the south to Parachilna in the north, is marked with red and white markers and is accessible from Wilpena, Aroona, Trezona, Yanyanna, Parachilna and Black Gap. The Heysen Trail is closed during summer between 1 December and 31 March each year and on days of total fire ban.
