Flinders Ranges
South Australia

Share this page:

South Australia's rugged and spectacular Flinders Ranges run northwards for more than 400 kilometers from the Gulf St Vincent in the south right up into the dry outback in the north.

The Flinders Ranges are a paradise for bushwalkers, wildlife and wildflower lovers, artists and philosophers. Wildlife includes the yellow-fiited rock wallabies with striped bushy tails, often seen in Brachina Gorge, where they come down to drink just before sunset.

The amateur geologist will enjoy the wide range of rare rock structures, textures and colors.

There are many examples of Aboriginal rock art to be seen.

The Flinders Ranges can be visited at any time of the year but perhaps the best time to visit is late autumn through to early spring (April to October).
