Telowie Gorge Conservation Park
Home to a colony of yellow-footed rock-wallabies, Telowie Gorge Conservation Park features some of the most dramatic scenery in the Southern Flinders Ranges.
The gorge and its diverse landforms have been created by Telowie Creek, which over time has cut a deep gorge through the range. Today, the gorge creates a rich variety of habitats for animals and plants from both the southern temperate and arid regions. During winter, Telowie Creek flows from the gorge onto the plains.
Animal watching, bushwalking and camping are popular ways to enjoy the park's wilderness setting.
Telowie Gorge Conservation Park is located 25km north east of Port Pirie (45 min); 248km north of Adelaide. Access is via Highway 1.
Open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
