Flinders Ranges

Camping under the stars in the Flinders Ranges is a wonderful experience that many people from all around the world gravitate to. Combine this with the excitement and thrill of rockclimbing, abseiling and wild caving it brings together an unforgettable and enriching experience.

This is a 4-5 day camping trip starting off camping at Warren Gorge near Quorn. Warren Gorge has a basic camp ground surrounded with glowing cliffs, gums, fauna and flora. There is even a colony of the rare and endangered Yellow Footed Rock Wallaby living in the rocky outcrops. This shy marsupial is often seen at dawn or dusk in the gorge. Here we tackle climbing some of the stunning red rock faces and abseil down them.

After we have mastered the cliffs of Warren Gorge we pack our equipment and head towards Bagalowie Station where there are some impressive cave systems. Camping near the Ghost Gum lined creeks of Bagalowie brings an understanding of the beauty that the remoteness this area offers. One of the caves is a simple walk in with some crawling to discover ancient stalactite, stalagmites and tunnels left behind from the time this area was underwater. The other cave we abseil into then explores the uniqueness and stillness it offers beneath the ground.

At the end of the camp we have some options on the way home to visit other areas in the Flinders Ranges. Often groups like to pass by Alligator Gorge for a stroll down to the rock pools and cascading waterfalls during the wetter months.

Bushland Park (Heritage Park)

Lobethal Bushland Park is one of the largest reserves of remnant bush land in the upper catchment zone of the Onkaparinga Valley. As such, it provides habitat for a diverse range of flora and fauna. Rare Maiden Hair Fern and Leafy Greenhood Orchids are represented in the park, while being absent from most of the Onkaparinga Valley area.

The Native Orchid Society has catalogued 33 species of native orchid – some of which were thought to be extinct – of which the Leafy Greenhood is one. The Friends group is involved in helping preserve these orchids.

During the 19th and early 20th century, before reticulated water was available to the towns in the Onkaparinga Valley, two reservoirs on a 118 hectare property supplied water to the town of Lobethal and its major industry. The first reservoir in the park was completed in 1894 to serve an expanding tweed factory (The Onkaparinga Wollen Mill) and the township. The reservoir's capacity was later doubled to 15 million gallons (73,000kL). A second 'balancing' was built in 1934.

The park was used as a 'mine' for its natural resources for 120 years. Since the early 1980s, Bushland Park land has seen a dramatic turn-around, with active community involvement in achieving ecological conservation.

Aboriginal Significance

Bushland Park is a very strategic central piece of Peramangk land within the Adelaide Hills region. From Angaston and Macclesfield In the winter months, the Pernmangk people traditionally live in groups of 20-60, gathering food for trade in the summer. They then split into family groups, where each has their own piece of land. These groups consist of an extended family up to three or four generations.

Shelters are traditionally made from the bark of the Stringy Bark tree and are occupied for four to five weeks at a time. The Aboriginal people purposely move around the district to help the land regenerate. Fire-stick farming aids this purpose by encouraging new growth following cool burns.

There are many plants and animals around Bushland Park used for food, shelter and tools by Peramangk people:

Yacca – stem of the flower is used to make the spear shaft, while soaking the flowers in water makes a sweet drink.

Blue Gum – bark is used for shields and shelter.

Bracken – roots are crushed and washed to remove poison, then eaten as a substitute for meat. Also used to treat insect bites.

Stringy Bark – bark is moist which is good to steam food in. Also good for shelter.

Kangaroo – a good food source. The tendons are also used as string to attach to shafts of spears.
