It might be tempting to hibernate in winter and sit by the fire or heater until the sun’s warmth returns in a few months’ time.
But don’t let those dark clouds and chilly mornings discourage you from hitting up these 4 hiking trails, which are guaranteed to reward you with jaw-dropping views.
1. Rawnsley Park station, Flinders Ranges
The 7 marked walking trails on the Rawnsley Park Station will give every level of walker beautiful scenery they’ll never forget.
The most difficult hike is a 12km trek to the top of the Rawnsley Bluff – the grind is worth it though. As you approach the summit, you’ll reach a fork in the path.
If you take the left option, you’ll get a spectacular view of Wilpena Pound.
Take the right and you’ll reach the Rawnsley Bluff, where you’ll be able to look out over the Chace Range.
Looking for something a bit easier on the knees? The Clem Corner trail is a 4.6km loop which will take you to a lookout with extensive views of the Hills of Arkaba and Elder Range.
If you’re in search of a place to stay while you’re exploring the Flinders Ranges, RAA is offering an exclusive winter rate on accommodation at Rawnsley Park Station.
