Outback and Flinders RangesThe South Australian Outback is a fascinating conglomeration of arid land, dense wilderness, barren desert and teeming lakes. Sprawled throughout these naturally defined areas are the fascinating rural towns of Coober Pedy, Oodnadatta, Roxby Downs and Woomera, among others. The Flinders Ranges and Outback region covers a vast area of diverse environments, and because of the scope of the region, it boasts some of Australia's richest Aboriginal heritage and art. Parts of this region are beautifully desolate, and while the weather can be scorching, touring this terrain is captivating. One of the best ways to take in the majestic Flinders Ranges is self-drive, allowing the flexibility to explore the many sights, sites and towns. The Flinders Ranges has enough on offer to require at least a few days of exploring to truly give this eco-wonderland justice. One of the highest peaks in the Flinders Ranges is Mount Brown, which is the home of varied flora and fauna, including the adorable Yellow-footed Rock wallabies. Along with rich animal and plant life, the Flinders Ranges National Park embraces an abundance of extraordinary geological structures including Lake Eyre, which is Australia's largest salt lake, the Wilpena Pound amphitheatre, Coongie Lakes as well as many other waterholes, lakes, deltas and shallow floodplains. Flinders Ranges and the outback are certainly areas that all Australians should visit.
