Join your experienced Yura guide at Wilpena Pound Resort for an entertaining and informative stroll from the Visitor Information Center to Old Wilpena Station, one of South Australia’s oldest and best preserved pastoral settlements.
Walk along Wilpena Creek past magnificent stands of river red gums with stunning views of Wilpena Pound in the distance. As you pass through the station gate, you’ll step back 150-years to the early days of pastoral runs. Along the way, learn about the landscapes, native animals, native bush tucker depending on the season, the Yura culture and history and the biodiversity from the perspective of the Adnyamathanha people. Wander among the original buildings of a bygone pastoral era, delving into the settlement history of the region. “Yura” is the name for the Adnyamathanha people and “Udnyu” means white, and this tour includes the intertwining histories of both cultures.
Wilpena Pound is located approximately 267 miles (429 kilometers) north of Adelaide, in the heart of Flinders Ranges National Park. It is a natural amphitheatre of mountains and is a true representation of the real Australian Outback. This tour will consist of an easy to moderate 1.3 mile (2 kilometer) walk with some uneven ground for a fascinating Aboriginal and European cultural experience.
