The Flinders Ranges is the largest mountain range in South Australia and stretches for over 430 km. Its most characteristic landmark is Wilpena Pound, a large, sickle-shaped, natural amphitheatre covering nearly 80 square kilometres, containing the range’s highest peak, St Mary Peak (1170m), and adjoining the Flinders Ranges National Park. A great destination for experiencing outback life with numerous sheep stations and remote outback settlements, Aborigines have lived in the Flinders Ranges for tens of thousands of years and for the Adnyamathanha, the hills or rock people, the ranges are still of immense cultural significance.
