Starting near the Wilpena Pound Resort at the end of Wilpena Road, Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park, this circuit walk takes you to the summit of Saint Mary Peak via the Outside, Inside and Pound Gap tracks. Wilpena Pound lies in the heart of the north Flinders Ranges and is a remarkable natural amphitheatre covering nearly 8000 hectares. It is a huge flat plain covered in scrub and trees and surrounded by jagged hills which form a rim. Standing at 1,171m, St. Mary Peak is the highest peak in the Flinders Ranges. In Aboriginal culture Ngarri Mudlanha means 'dizzy thoughts'. From the summit, walkers are rewarded with outstanding panoramic views of the Flinders Ranges, Aroona Valley, and the salt plains to the west. Wilpena Pound has a wide variety of flora and fauna. The pound is home to Sturt's desert pea, river gums, mallee, acacia and casuarinas. The wildlife includes the red kangaroo, the euro, the yellow-footed rock wallaby, 18 species of snakes, 60 species of lizard, dingoes, emus, galahs and wedge-tailed eagles. This hike offers a challenge for enthusiastic bushwalkers, with steep climbs and rugged terrain. The directions are often marked in very subtle hard-to-spot ways, such as faded arrows scratched into the rocks. The last 2km to the peak involves a lot of rock scrambling, but the view makes the effort worthwhile. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the Windjana Gorge Day Use Area off Fairfield-Leopold Downs Road, Windjana Gorge National Park, this walk explores Windjana Gorge via the Gorge Trail. Windjana Gorge is a wide gorge carved out by the Lennard River, with a sandy beach along the river bed. The gorge cuts through the Napier Range, which is part of an ancient reef system. Sheer walls rise up to 100m on either side of the gorge, and ancient fossilized marine creatures can be seen embedded within the limestone of the gorge walls. Rated as one of the most beautiful of all the gorges in the Kimberley region, Windjana is rich in vegetation and wildlife. The gorge is a highly spiritual place to Bunuba people and the Wandjina are the powerful creation spirits that reside here. It was also the hiding place for outlaw indigenous leader Jandamarra in the 1890s. The trail winds its way through the monsoonal strip of vegetation along the permanent pools of water. Freshwater crocodiles bask in the pools, while fruit bats and corellas roost in the waterside trees. Freshwater crocodiles are smaller and not as aggressive as saltwater crocodiles, but their teeth are still razor sharp, so please remain at least 5 metres away from them. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the carpark near the Brownhill Creek Caravan Park on Brown Hill Creek Road, Mitcham, this walk takes you on a circuit through Brownhill Creek Recreation Park via the Wirraparinga Trail. Located a short drive away from the centre of Adelaide, the Wirraparinga Trail meanders around the Brownhill Creek Valley, drawing cyclists and walkers deep into the park as the trail skips from one side of Brownhill Creek to the other. Brownhill Creek was once a favourite camping, hunting and gathering ground for the Kaurna Aboriginal people, who called it Wirraparinga. The Wirraparinga Trail traverses the southern side of the valley, and the Shared Use Trail the northern side along the creek. It’s possible to combine the two trails into a loop, starting at the caravan park and turning around at the Manure Pits. Regardless of your direction of travel, you will be accompanied by the narrow creek as it flows through the steep-sided valley covered with majestic river red gums, some more than 300 years old. Points of interest along the trail include the Monarch of the Glen, a 400-year-old river red gum with a hollow trunk that once provided shelter to the Kaurna Aboriginal people. The loop is well signposted, and there are several picnic tables dotted throughout the park. The Shared Use Trail is accessible to bikes, prams and wheelchairs. Some sections can be slippery in winter and after heavy rains. Take care on the creek crossings and where you share the road with traffic. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
