Be sure to head up the road a tad to the Gammon Ranges NP. Much more remote and worth the visit. Check out the Grindel's Hut area .. a great spot and you can take a good run through the back blocks to Arkaroola. The run across to Lake Fromme is also worth it. But if it's anything like last April the bloody flies will drive you completely mental.Rosco

I travelled through the Flinders last december and yes it was hot but the beauty was there were hardly any other people around.We travelled up from Yunta and stayed at Chambers Gorge,absolutely beautiful,peaceful and full of wild life. Then we headed back through Blinman and Glass Gorge to Parachilna,well worth the trip. I have been through the Flinders a number of times in all seasons and found early summer to be the best.

jugular - or whatever -

Suggest you do a search on this topic. It is a regularly asked question.

If you have time, go on a P.A.R. or one of the many private 4wd treks in the region.

Read my recent posts, and that of Willie's. We were both up there last week, but in different locations.

I suggest that you give SKYTREK on Willow Springs station a try. It is 21 Kms Nth of Wilpena Pound, have alook at their web site www.frabs.com.au/skytrek.htm.
Also Arkaroola is well worth the extra miles. Brachina and Bunyaroo Gorges are great scenery,and camping is well worth it at Chambers Gorge.
Have a look at www.flinders.outback.on.net for other ideas.

I know you may have already done so but I am staggered at the number of people that don't know - Have a look at the Flinders Ranges Trek Notes on this site. Go to Trip Planning - TrekNotes and select SA - Flinders region.
