Flinders Ranges National Park Camp Sites

The park is located in the Flinders Ranges between the townships of Hawker and Blinman. Its area is 95,000 ha (950 km2). Located 450 km north of Adelaide the park offers a wide range of activities for all interests including bushwalking, camping, scenic touring, birdwatching

Many opportunities exist in the park for vehicle-based camping at designated sites. The campground at Wilpena has full facilities with powered sites, toilets, showers, fuel, phone, ATM, internet access, store, swimming pool, bar and restaurant making camping an easy option. Bookings for powered sites or general enquiries can be directed to the Wilpena Pound Visitor Centre on (618) 8648 0048 or email visitorscentre@wilpenapound.com.au.

Please note that the campground at Wilpena is privately leased and separate camping fees apply to the rest of the park.

For those wanting a true bushcamping experience in peaceful settings there are designated camping sites within the park at Bunyeroo and Brachina Gorges and Aroona Valley which have toilets and firepits with cooking grills. These campgrounds have limited water available and it is recommended that you carry your own water. The various camping sites have unique settings, are easily accessible to 2WD and 4WD vehicles and are well maintained. Camping permits are required and can be obtained from self-registration bays at each camp site, Department for Environment and Heritage offices or the Wilpena Pound Visitor Centre.

Camp fires are not permitted during the fire ban season, from 1 November to 15 April. At other times, small camp fires may be lit at designated fire pits using wood obtained from the Wilpena or Rawnsley Park stores or brought in from outside the park. The collection of firewood from within the park is prohibited. Gas fires are permitted except on days of extreme fire danger. Open fires are not permitted in Wilpena Pound at any time.

Although rubbish bins are located at camp sites and picnic areas, campers are encouraged to take out all rubbish. Plastic bags are often torn apart by ravens, leaving camp sites littered.

Self-registration stations are located at entrances and campgrounds throughout the park (except at the Wilpena campground). Visitors wishing to camp at Wilpena will need to inquire at the Wilpena Visitor Centre. National Park Entry and Camping Permits can also be purchased at the Wilpena Visitor Centre.
