We left the Northern Flinders and Gammon Ranges to visit the Central Flinders Ranges, which we hadn't been able to see due to the fog and rain, on our last trip.

Parachilna Gorge
Brachina Gorge. The road is signposted all the way with the ages of each rock formation. Most range from 570 - 580 million years old, but still very young in comparison to Arkaroola, whose rocks date back to 1.6 billion years ago.

Bunyeroo Gorge was the most spectacular in the central Flinders Ranges with steep red cliffs and sandstone folds in red and ochre.

We avoided Wilpena Pound, as everyone and their dog headed into the village area!

Our stop for the night - Carrieton, a very small town struggling for survival. The old primary school, has been purchased by the local community, when the school closed a year ago, and made into accommodation and camping.
