The Flinders Ranges are about 220kms out of Adelaide. The region offers a spectacular outback experience. In a few hours of driving you get an ever changing view. Flat arid paddocks, rolling hills which are home to large birds of prey, dense bushland, gorges with huge ghost gums and tiny wildflowers. The main attraction however is majestic cliffs that glow at sunset. There are a host of things to do but the best way to see all the area is by 4WD. There are many dirt tracks that lead to great attractions such as Razor back lookout, Appealinna Ruins, Cazneaux Tree, The China wall, and not to be missed Brachina Gorge. But if you dont have a 4WD there are many tour operators in the area who offer a range of ways to get around. There are bus tours, plane flights, tag alongs, camel and horse treks or you can hire a vehicle to self drive. If you are visiting the area in just a normal car you wont miss out as most major attractions such as Wilpena Pound are accessed by bitumen roads.
Take care to stick to public roads as farmers dont take to kindly to tourists stomping around their land but having said that some do offer access with a fee attached. Most landowners who offer this service advertise it so look for fliers or brochures at such places as the Wilpena Pound visitors centre and at shops and petrol stations.
There is a variety of accommodation in the Flinders from 5 star resorts, or homestead stays, to bush camping within the park itself.
You will have to pay an entry fee to visit the national park which varies depending on your length of stay. For a day pass its about $7AUD. Look for the registration points at the entrances to the park.
