Camping in South Australia

With over 110 parks, campers have an impressive selection of parks with campsites to choose from in South Australiai. When given choices like the Nullarbor National Park, Lake Eyre National Park, Mount Remarkable National Park and Lincoln National Park, it can be hard to pick a favourite. Here is an overview of two.

Flinders Ranges National Park

With its rugged mountains and spectacular scenery, Flinders Ranges is an important piece of Australia's outback. A must see attraction within the park is Wilpena Pound, mountains that have slowly eroded to form a beautiful valley that is approximately 8km long and 4km wide. From exploring Aboriginal rock art sites and fossil heritage to flying over Wilpena Pound, there is plenty to do at the park. For those who are interested in learning more, guided tours can be taken. At Flinders, there are resorts, motels, cabins and camping grounds, so traveller's accommodation needs are well catered forii.
