The Aboriginal people have lived here for thousands of years and and left rock carvings, cave paintings and stone implements. Their dreaming stories interpret the landscape in a mythical way. Wilpena Pound is a huge basin-like formation in the heart of the Flinders.

To the north, the Arkaroola – Mount Painter Sanctuary is the most rugged part of the ranges.
