Mount Brown Conservation Park

At 964 metres altitude, Mount Brown is one of the highest peaks in the South Flinders Ranges.

This former forest reserve is comprised of undulating country with a variety of cover grading to rugged ridges with open woodland and scrub.

From Waukarie Falls, hike to the summit of Mount Brown and enjoy the views across the Southern Flinders Ranges from the lookout. This lookout commemorates Robert Brown who was the naturalist aboard Matthew Flinders' Investigator. Along this 15km loop trail evidence of a 1km deep canyon formed 600 million years ago can be found.


Mount Brown Conservation Park is located 14km south of Quorn. Access is via Richman Valley Road.
