July at Wilpena Pound

Mon 11 Jul, 2016 7:42 pm

Last weekend we spent a few days walking around Wilpena Pound. We camped out in the Pound and the recent rains meant there was plenty of water which can otherwise be a problem in this area. Mornings were cold at about 0-2 degrees but the days were about 13 degrees sunny and no wind. We timed our trip to take advantage of a nice high pressure system between a couple of nasty cold fronts. The Flinders were nice and green and the walking was great. Spent a few days camping out in the Pound. The longest day was a 22km loop through the inside of the pound and up St Mary peak (1171m) and back on the outside rim track - this took 6.5 hours including about half an hour at the summit for lunch.

Thanks, Phil. Brings back plenty of memories.

Oh, to be in the Flinders, now that winter's here . . .

Hi. just wondering if the fresh water spring still exists at the top of St Mary's Peak. It's been about 50 years since since the last time I climbed the peak. (and walked Edeowie Gorge)
