Information

Hermit Hill is a historic landmark. In 1858 Benjamin Babbage climbed to the top of this high hump-backed range to become the first person to cross the gap between Lake Torrens and Lake Eyre. Prior to this, it was thought that these lakes were one and a massive barrier that would block any progress to the north.
