Travelling up in to the Flinders Ranges should certainly be on the itinerary if you are coming to South Australia.
Passing through Port Augusta we briefly had a look around the wharf area.
As we started travelling north east we started to get glimpses of what was to come.
Next stop was Quorn, a historic town which has kept much of its charm and buildings have been lovingly maintained.
The Kanyaka Homestead on the way to Wilpena gave us a glimpse of what once was. The remains of the homestead and out buildings are now being preserved. The creek, with its beautiful gums, would have made a welcome relief during the summer months and was obviously the source of the building materials.
We also visited Blinman, an old copper mining town and the end of the bitumen out this way, where we enjoyed lunch.
The drive through Bunyeroo and Brachina Gorges at the north of Wilpena Pound was along, and sometimes in, the dry river beds. It is so tranquil and pretty at this time of the year but the fallen trees and debris everywhere are a sign of the ferocity that the winter rains can have.
We returned along the Moralana Scenic Drive to the southern end of Wilpena Pound. Wildflowers were more prolific here and we saw an abundance of wildlife.
And these guys were having a good old box-up!
