You’ll be spoilt for choice when deciding how to fill your time here, with a great variety of camping ground scattered around the park to chose from.
It is also known for having an average high of 24 degrees in January, so it’s a great spot to enjoy some cool, pleasant adventuring weather!

2. Wilpema Pound, Flinders Ranges.
The Wilpema Pound is a natural wonder, an amphitheatre created by millions of years of erosion.
This area has many unpowered, powered and bush sites and also has a selection of luxury safari tents.
Climbing the ridge to see the sunset or sunrise will be an experience like no other, and exploring the Flinders Range in general will be an incredible experience – from following the Aboriginal Dreamtime Track to taking a flight over for an aerial view.

3. Talia Caves, Eyre Peninsula
For those of us who are fully equipped in our campers and ready to go off the beaten track, the Talia Caves need to be seen to be believed.
The sandstones cliffs have been eroded into caves and caverns, and the beaches are wild and empty. There is no powered sites or toilets, but room for 20 bush camps, and it’s a great place to test your fishing talent to catch dinner.
