Flinders Ranges
 

Wilpena Pound - a walk through the Gap

 


View of the "Gap" through the east side of the Pound, with the Wilpena tourist village in the middle foreground
 

The creek running through the gap with its typical river red gums
 

A permanent spring in the Gap - and below
 

 

This sculpture indicates the Gap and its features have a special significance for Aboriginal people
 

Once through the gap we are climbing to get a view of the mountains in the Pound
 

On the path back we are confronted by two of the many feral goats throughout the Flinders Ranges
 
Seed pods on trees
 

Ring-necked parrots usually forage on the ground - as do the Western Grey Kangaroos found in the Gap (further below)

Just outside the Gap to the south east of the Pound is this interesting rock "Arkaroo"
 

 

It looks like it once had Aboriginal paintings
