Cooinda camping area (walk-in camping)

Camping fee Fire prohibited No dogs/pets No rubbish disposal Non-vehicle camping Walking trails

This sheltered but no-frills walk-in site tucked within Wilpena Pound is 12 km from the visitor centre; a permit is required. This camping area serves as a base for bushwalks to St Mary Peak and Edeowie Gorge. The views from St Mary Peak are spectacular and the climb from this side, though longer, is much easier than the scramble up the eastern side.

This campsite is located in Flinders Ranges National Park

With astonishing Wilpena Pound as its centrepiece, this park packs tremendous visual punch. There’s so much landscape laid bare that even taking a drive or relaxing in camp can be a captivating experience. Take to the Heysen Trail or jump on a mountain bike and an even richer story is revealed – a world of hidden waterholes, spring wildflowers, Aboriginal rock-art sites, abundant wildlife and geological grandeur.
