We arrived in the Flinders Ranges proper in late March and based ourselves at a private campground on a property just outside the National Park.
The drive in to the Ranges was quite scenic and we stopped often for the excellent photo opportunities.
A Wedgie perched conveniently, albeit a long way off, but still within camera range.

We drove along some of the roads through the National Park, taking in the stark beauty of this ancient landscape. One of the highlights of our travels to date.

The weather was perfect and we enjoyed our walk into Wilpena Pound, a huge natural amphitheatre with only one easy way in our out. Probably the only way to properly appreciate this geological wonder is from the air. Besides being expensive and with my aversion to flying, we were content enough to take it all in from ground level.

The locals looked on in amusement as I scanned the slopes of the hill in search of little brown birds.
