Thinking of spending a week on the Flinders in late August. However, just wondering how the February fires have effected the area and if it has recovered since this event.
Any comments appreciated.

Down south to up north is all good. Plenty of rain.

Just prepare for the flies.

PS, Beltana Road House has closed.

But well worth calling in to old Beltana and Beltana Station.

Fires had no impact on the central Flinders Ranges but hit the Southern Flinders around Orroroo, Jamestown and Mt Remarkable pretty hard. But with the recent rains it is all bouncing back nicely. Late August to September there should be plenty of wildflowers around this year. As well you should see water in the creeks so it will be really pretty.

Call the helpful folk at the Hawker visitors centre, Rawnsley Park or Wilpena Pound for an update I suggest

The fires only touched maybe less then 1% of the Flinders, the Flinders Ranges is a BIG area covering 10's of thousands of square kilometres.

For example the fire was about 200 kilometres south ofWilpena Pound and as said above it was in the souther Flinders.

A large majority of the land destroyed was farming or inaccessible bush land
