Arkaroola International Dark Sky Sanctuary

Discover the Flinders Ranges and Outback

Driving through the Flinders Ranges and Outback, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were navigating the unexplored face of Mars. Towering ancient cliffs and deep craters border dusty red roads. Take an aerial tour of Kati Thanda–Lake Eyre or drive along the Aboriginal Dreaming Trail. Marvel at Ikara-Wilpena Pound, a shockingly large amphitheatre, created through erosion over millions of years, or look up at night for a sky show like never before at the Arkaroola International Dark Sky Sanctuary. Be surrounded by ancient mountain ranges, spectacular gorges and sheltered creeks only five hours drive from Adelaide to Ikara-Wilpena Pound, or embark on the ultimate road trip along the Explorer's Way.
