Two Gums trees in the Flinders Ranges
The Flinders Ranges is on of those typically iconic locations that all Australians should visit the landscape is so diverse and yet in hanses that which I feel typifies the ruggered beauty of Australia.
Driving through most of the roads in the Flinders (South Australia) I am constantly looking for what would make a good landscape photograph, but I am also looking in the mirror to see how things look from behind, this is on of those images. It does remind me of something the Australian painter Hans Heysen might have painted.
Flinders Ranges is the largest mountain range in South Australia, which starts approximately 360 km north west of Adelaide and runs some 430km further north.
The Major attraction to the Flinders Ranges is Wilpena Pound, which was originally used as a cattle station its natural amphitheatre shape was ideal for cattle containment along with its size of 80 square kilometres. The highest point in the Flinders Ranges is, St Mary Peak (1170m). Which is now easily climbed especial now as they have changed the walking track from a rock shelf to a convoluted track, which travels around the back of St Mary’s Peak. If you are looking at a sunset view from the top allow enough time to travel the safer route via Wilpena Pound.
