Crowning the Eyre Peninsula the Gawler Ranges rear up from the wheat and barley-fields around Wudinna, changing from level countryside into ancient eroded hills, dramatic rocky outcrops and volcanic rock formations.

Fringing the region are immense areas of savannah which for much of the year are covered in deep red soil and spinifex grass, but are transformed each spring as a blanket of wildflowers sets the area ablaze with color.

The dazzling Lake Gardiner, a glistening salt pan amid the surrounding red soil, resembles a piece of Antarctica whilst the immense Organ Pipes amphitheater makes a natural stage for the local wildlife.

The park is home to some of Australia’s oldest landscapes, whose colorful and unusual rock formations have been baffling geologists for years.
