See previous post for travel to Pilliga and Siding Springs
On to the Flinders Ranges
We settled into the quaint and cosy hotel “The Mill” in Quorn and took a walk just before sunset along a very small section of the 1200km Heysen Trail.
I was pleased to find we could still buy my favourite ice cream – Golden North honey – in the region. At the time I used to visit, many years ago, it was the only place you could in fact buy it. It arrived in Adelaide some time later.
Next day was devoted to a whirlwind trip to Wilpena Pound and Brachina Gorge in the FlindersRanges, where ancient rocks have been uplifted and folded into dramatic shapes.
I had very often camped and hiked here with the Adelaide University Mountain Club many years ago but Darren had never visited. I was glad he immediately fell in love with these rugged ranges and started missing them as soon as we left
To Wilpena Pound
