Information

The Flinders Ranges are one of the oldest Mountain Ranges in the world, with fossil evidence dating back over 640 million years and today’s weathered remains of a once great mountain that was once up to 6 kilometres high. For over 15,000 years, these ranges where the home for the local Adnyamathanha Aboriginal people. There are many fine locations in the Flinders Ranges where their paintings and rock art sites can be viewed and it is well worth the time to visit one of these sites.

The Moralana Scenic Drive (just off the Flinders Ranges Way, near Arkaba Station) provides a worthy drive to allow you to experience the beautiful views of the Elder Range, including Arkaba Hill.

Stop at the marked Arkaba Hill lookout rest area to view Arkaba Hills and the ranges on your way towards Wilpena Pound.
