Hi all
Back again for more info
Which is the quickest way from broken Hill to Flinders ranges N.P. Don't really want to go down the highway to petersbourgh and then up to hawker. Can we safely cut across somwhere between Olary and Yunta?

Kate,

You can go from Yunta, but you did not say where you want to go to/come out at in the flinders.

I know the area like the back of my hand. Give me a mobile no and i will send you a LL # you can ring me on if you wish.

Down to Yunta...fill up there and head up to Flinders area from there.. Its also a very pleasant & historical drive.

We did this trip, coming out just north of Willow Springs over the Anzac weekend. Was a good trip, road wasn't too bad.

You can follow this road from Yunta and either come out near Rawnsley Park or as we did just north of Willow Springs, which is 17 km north of Wilpena Pound.

Regards

The road up from Yunta provides good access to all of the northern and central(???) Flinders. There is, however, limited access to the west. The road is well maintained and quite a pleasant trip. It is roughly 300km from Yunta to Arkaroola and the trip can be comfortably completed in a day. Broken Hill to Arkaroola that is, with plenty of time to make camp. It is about 2 hours BH to Yunta at the speed limit. I recommend you don't go any faster as the SA Police keep that bit of highwya pretty well covered and they don't take kindly to people speeding in their fromt street.

This is the best access from BH to the Flinders and is much quicker than going via Hawker. But if you intend going to places further south than Wilpena you would be better off to follow the bitumen. Even Wilpena is borderline.
