RvTrips' review

22 May 2016

Wilpena Pound is a natural phenomena created within the Flinders Ranges in South Australia. We were staying in our caravan at the Wilpena Pound camping ground which has been created in a lovely bush setting with lots of trees - large sites with plenty of privacy. There are also motel rooms available in the resort with a great restaurant and swimming pool.  

There are several walks from the Wilpena Pound Resort and we set of on the 8 kilometres return trail to Wangarra Lookout to take a closer look at the Pound itself. Apparently this area was called a pound because it reminded early settlers of a pound where you can keep animals - there is only one valley leading into the pound so it is relatively easy to block off and keep the animals contained.  

Once you reach the lookout you appreciate the enormity of Wilpena Pound which no longer houses farmed animals but is full of native vegetation. The Flinders Ranges are quite spectacular with beautiful scenery and interesting geological history - well worth the visit. RvTrips highly recommends a few days a Wilpena Pound  in order to explore the area.
