The Flinders Ranges National Park encompasses some of the most spectacular scenery in South Australia, made famous by the paintings of Sir Hans Heysen. The Park is world-renowned for its geological history and includes impressive fossil remains.

Adnyamathanha people have lived in the Flinders Ranges for tens of thousands of years and the region remains of enormous significance today in contemporary Adnyamathanha society.

European occupation of the Flinders Ranges in the mid-nineteenth century brought widespread environmental modifications. Despite these changes, the Park supports examples of natural and semi-arid ecosystems, and includes many plants and animals of conservation significance. The most notable of these is probably the yellow-footed rock wallaby which can be found in rocky gorges within the Park.

Regular air services operate to Port Augusta (160km away). Other small private airstrips are also available by arrangement only.  Transfers can be organised with the resort prior to arrival.

The Indian Pacific and The Ghan rail services also operate through Port Augusta on a regular basis.
