On our property, Willow Waters Gorge is a great destination for camping, picnics, bush walking or just relaxing and listening to the birds sing. Getting in touch with nature couldn’t be easier! The beautiful gum tree lined Willow Creek curves its way through mountainous ancient ranges that attract kangaroos, emus, echidnas, reptiles and a large range of native birdlife – Keep an eye out for the resident wedge tail eagles! The hills in this ancient gorge are estimated to be 800 million years old, making them some of the oldest hills in the Flinders Ranges. There is evidence of stromatolite fossils dating back millions of years.
The Willow Waters Gorge has a history of early copper mining and sheep grazing from the 1870’s. Explore our Willow Waters 4WD track* – 4WD only. *Additional fees apply.
