The Appealinna ruins are reached via a track approximately 20 kilometres north of the Wilpena turnoff on Hawker-Blinman Road. Then by a track about 1km north of the Wirrealpa turn-off on the Blinman Road. Joseph Wills, a local pastoralist in the 1850s, built the homestead and stockyards on the southern side of the creek, while the ruins on the north side were once a busy mining settlement. The flat stone quarried on-site and used in the construction of these buildings is a unique feature of Appealinna.

Interpretive signs have been erected around Appealinna for your reading pleasure, as well as a carpark and picnic table. No toilets though, except for the single-seater that was built approximately 150 paces from Wills' homestead. This bucket-style dunny has a rear hatch for the removal and emptying of its bucket.

Camping is no longer permitted here. Day use only.
