Wilpena Pound, Flinders Ranges and Outback

Explore Wilpena Pound: an awe-inspiring ancient landscape brimming with wildlife.

Cradled by ancient mountain ranges on the edge of the desert, Wilpena Pound is the crowning jewel of the Flinders Ranges. Also known by its Adnyamathanha name of Ikara, meaning meeting place, Wilpena Pound rewards the intrepid. Pitch your tent and fall asleep under a blanket of stars or retreat in secluded luxury at Rawnsley Park Station before rising at dawn to traverse the ancient peeks of 800-million-year-old Wilpena Pound. Jump on a scenic flight to appreciate its magnitude and beauty from above then learn about the area's cultural significance with Aboriginal Cultural Tours. Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park is also home to Rawnsley Bluff, Razorback Lookout in Bunyeroo Gorge and Stokes Hill Lookout.
