Wilpena PoundThe most dramatic natural formation of the Flinders Ranges is the Wilpena Pound, a vast amphitheater of mountain peaks. While it has a passing resemblance to the caldera of some ancient volcano, it is actually formed of sedimentary rock, in two separate mountain ranges, with the highest peak reaching an altitude of over 3,800 feet. On her Southern Exposure [hyperlink] itinerary, Katie can arrange for a scenic flight over the Wilpena Pound, providing unforgettable views of one of Australia’s most stunning natural wonders.
