Vulkathunha-Gammon Ranges National Park was proclaimed in 1970. A rugged and remote park in the north Flinders Ranges, this is a park of contrasts, with deep gorges and chasms, towering mountains, tree-lined creeks and freshwater spring. The park forms part of the traditional country of the Adnyamathanha people and is rich with cultural significance. The spectacular terrain in Vulkathunha-Gammon Ranges National Park can be explored by the many hiking trails and via the 4WD tracks that lead you deep into the heart of the rugged landscape. The park is a haven for many rare and endangered plants and animals.
On the foothills behind Waite Campus, Urrbrae, the University of Adelaide's 121 ha Waite Conservation Reserve conserves an important remnant of Nationally endangered Grey Box Grassy Woodland with over 200 native plant species. It provides an accessible and tranquil environment for bushwalking and enjoying nature only 6km from the city centre. The Friends group welcomes new members to help restore this beautiful patch of bushland.Read More →
