Spotlight On the Pound

The beautiful Wilpena Pound is an ancient geological formation which looks like a giant crater and is something of a temperate oasis in the semi-arid Flinder Ranges.

Off in the distance what appears to be a gentle saddle separating left and right sides is the incredible Edeowie Gorge. The small triangular peak a little to the right is St Mary’s Peak, the highest point in the Flinders Ranges. Our look out here is the southern pound wall with Rawnsleys Bluff behind us.

All of it under the spotlight of an outback Australian sun.
