Description

The Gawler Ranges National Park is a special place where history, conservation and Aboriginal culture come together. Proclaimed as a national park in 2002, the landscape teems with wildlife and protects rare and threatened plants and animals, including crimson mallee and the yellow-footed rock-wallaby. The park is famous for the magnificent Organ Pipes, formed over 1500 million years ago as a result of volcanic eruptions. You can find equally stunning rocky outcrops at Yandinga Falls and Kolay Mirica Falls. Vehicle entry needs to be paid prior to arrival. A 4WD is recommended to enjoy all of the highlights of the park, although in dry weather much of the park can be accessed by high clearance 2WD. Dogs are not permitted in this park.

Absolutely brilliant... Yandinga campsite flat ,spacious, private .toilets clean.. close to falls.. tracks well kept, good sign posting..picnic tables in strategic places. Quiet and serenely beautiful..we were lucky and had perfect weather ,except for our last day when it rained.. My suggestion to the authors of the Gawler Ranges brochure and map, would be to include more detail in order to plan and prepare, a little more local knowledge and information would be great. However, we were grateful to be able to enjoy such a wonderful area...
