Information

Willow Springs Station is a 70,000 acre sheep property in the Flinders offering tourism opportunities for visitors. With a choice of 7 private and self contained accommodation buildings as well as camping areas, the location is reputed with one of the greatest 4wd treks in the region (Skytrek). The views all over the station are second to none. Mountain Bikes are also available to hire from the station. Willow Springs is one of the stops on the FRBB (Flinders Ranges by Bike) trail. SKYTREK is an 80km, Self-Drive off road adventure, taking you through majestic river red gum-lined creeks, groves of native pines and black oak, over blue bush plains, through rugged mountain valleys and ascends and descends over multiple mountain ranges.With the aid of a self guiding map experience the unique and outstanding features such as ruins of old shepherd's huts, ochre cliffs, aboriginal etchings, natural springs and the 'original' Willow Springs waterhole. The modern and historic points of interest including windmills, mustering yards and stock ratios give you a better understanding of the Pastoral operation of the Station whilst a large variety of flora, fauna and geological features educate and inspire the wanderlust in all of us.The significant panoramic view of the iconic Wilpena Pound from Upalinna Lookout and the 'Eagle's view' of the surrounding Flinders landscape is a breathtaking and truly unforgettable experience.
