Wilpena Pound, and the Nullarbor Cliffs
5 February 2016
Wilpena Pound, in the heart of the Flinders Ranges, is described as #2 on the top 100 things to do in South Australia. Described as rough, and ruggedly beautiful, Wilpena Pound was formed from millions of years of erosion. A living geology lesson, Wilpena Pound is fabulous to explore on foot, but to gain a true perspective, we invite you to view all of the Pound from the air, in a scenic flight from Rawnsley Park Station, located on the Southern edge of Wilpena Pound. Flights are available all year round.
The Bunda Cliffs, on the edge of the Nullarbor, are listed at #3 on the top 100 things to do in South Australia. To quote “when mapmakers of old envisioned the “edge of the Earth” South Australia’s Head of Bight is likely a close approximation of what they had in mind. It’s hard not to feel that the Australian continent ends here.” During the winter months, especially July and August, you can experience ‘the edge of the world’ and see the beginning of life, as the Southern Right Whales gather in the Marine Park to give birth and to breed. You can visit the Head of Bight Marine Park Visitor Centre, and walk down to the viewing platforms on the edge of the cliffs. We invite you also to view the Whales, the Cliffs, and some of the Nullarbor from the air in a scenic flight from the Nullarbor Roadhouse. Flights are available during the winter months only.
