Uncover the history of Wilpena Pound with 10% off Aboriginal cultural tours

Did you know, an extraordinary 800 million-year-old natural amphitheatre is situated in the heart of the Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park in South Australia?

It’s known as ‘Ikara’ or Wilpena Pound and is the traditional homeland of the Adnyamathanha (Yura) people. Nearby, the Yura people operate Wilpena Pound Resort, 430km north of Adelaide.

Wilpena Pound Resort serves as the only resort within the Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park. Accommodation ranges from hotel rooms to ‘glamping’ safari tents, and powered and unpowered bush campsites. As one of only a few Aboriginal owned and operated resorts, Wilpena Pound Resort’s hallmark feature is its Aboriginal cultural experiences.
