Wilpena Pound National Park lays at the centre of the Flinders Ranges.
In many ways an oasis on the edge of the outback
To climb one of the lookouts or scale a peak is to gain a breathtaking vista like the view from Wangara Lookout below
Though the tracks can be a little testing, especially if a bit of light rain makes them damp.
Inside the Pound the forest is cool with towering River Gums and shady Native Conifers
And of course there is the Wilpena Homestead
I’m.many ways a simple pioneers building but a symbol of devestation in many ways for aboriginal Australians.
But that is a story for another blog.
The beautiful campground offers a shady rest for the adventurer.
