Have just returned from an excellent trip to the Flinders Ranges. We stayed 3 nights (one night extra due to rain) in Warraweena Conservation Park but could easily have stayed longer. With 200k's of real 4wd tracks around the property,a manager who thinks all us 4wders should be allowed to access to our beautiful country, isolated camping spots and great hospitality, what more could you want. If anyone is taking a trip into the Flinders this is a must see and camp spot. You can find details at www.warraweena.com and say hi to Stony for us...... we'll be back!

Hi Onions

Will agree 100% with you on that one.
We spent an adventurous night caught out in a flash flood at Warraweena in September 2004. It was amazing to see the transformation of the tracks...one minute tracks, next raging torrents!!! With Willem and Stony with us, we knew we were ok!! Stony is certainly a great guy... Would love to go back one day when it is not so wet!

Where is Warraweena?
We were there last Oct, just after all of the floods :-)
Got all of the stories, and enjoyed the green country.:-)
But we only got as far south as Wilpena pound since we came in from Innamincka down the eastern side. Ran out of time.
Enjoyed the tracks around Arkaroola and the skytrek etc.
Plan to go back again and finish off the southern flinders.
Hopefully soon.

Hi John C,
Warraweena is roughly an hour from Leigh Creek (1/2 tar and 1/2 dirt) via Beltana Roadhouse. Its near enough the centre of the Flinders but if your'e going to do the southern end it is well within reach and is a great place to stay a few days. If you book your camp before getting there they will give you a site all to yourself. They have pit toilets (long drops) and showers at the shearers quarters, both extremely well kept. No site is within cooee of any other and had loads of firewood around.
Sounds like a bloody ad doesn't it!

Rgds,
Pete.
