Guided Walk - Old Wilpena Homestead
Nestled between the ABC Range and the northern ramparts of Wilpena Pound is Old Wilpena Station, one of South Australia's oldest and best preserved pastoral settlements. Walk along Wilpena Creek past magnificent stands of river red gums with stunning views of the Pound wall in the distance. As you pass through the station gate you will step back 150 years to the early days of the pastoral runs. Explore a world of improvisation, dogged self-sufficiency and a powerful instinct for survival. Learn how the land changed with European settlement and how present day pastoralists and park managers are dealing with those changes. Enjoy a cuppa and cake on the verandah of the Old Homestead or Government House, as the early homesteads were known.
