Wilpena Pound Campground, Thomas Simpson

This is the main hub for visitors and bushwalkers exploring Wilpena Pound. The extensive facilities, easy access to the nearby resort and the magnificent river red gums along Wilpena Creek make this a very popular haunt – accordingly, it pays to book for holiday stays Apr–Oct. Follow the signs off Wilpena Rd, 52 km north of Hawker. A park entrance fee applies.

This campsite is located in Heysen Trail (Flinders Ranges)

The Flinders Ranges is the starting point of the magnificent Heysen Trail, one of the world’s great walking tracks and the longest trail in Australia. If you start here – or at the other end in Deep Creek Conservation Park in the Fleurieu Peninsula – it can take around 60 days by foot to tackle the full 1200 km. But the whole trip is for experienced hikers only. Stick to the Flinders Ranges and you will experience breathtaking outback scenery. Although camping areas have water, be prepared to be self sufficent on this trail.
