One of South Australias newest parks is
the Gawler Ranges. Once a thriving cattle station called Paney Station, it is now accessible by 2 or 4WD vehicles.
Please check with rangers after rain if going into the park.
This large park is home to 21 rare and endangered animal and
plant species. The park abounds with wildflowers and was in
fact the location where the Sturts Desert Pea was first
sighted by Edward John Eyre in 1839 later to become the
floral emblem of south Australia.
Wildlife, historic sights, geological and natural landscapes
offer a large variety of activities for the nature lover.
Spectacular wilderness areas featuring salt lakes, volcanic
domes and more dot the landscape, ideal for photography.
