Information

Old Wilpena Station lies only a few kilometres from the Wilpena Pound Resort within the National Park. Wilpena Station was established in 1851 and had a working life of 135 years.

The Old Wilpena Station Historic Precinct is one of South Australia's most significant pastoral settlement sites due to its well-preserved condition, wealth of heritage and spectacular natural setting. Wilpena Station is the most complete group of early station buildings surviving in South Australia in an authentic pastoral landscape.

The Heritage listed site is a valuable archive of pastoral history in the Flinders Ranges and is culturally significant for both indigenous and non-indigenous Australians. The site holds a continued cultural significance for the Adnyamathanha people.

Visitors can enjoy self-guided and guided tours (fees apply) of the Old Wilpena Station. The 'Living with Land' Interpretive Trail is an easy walk and takes around one hour to complete.
