RAWNSLEY Park Station is expanding its multi-day guided walks of the Flinders Ranges this year. Station owners Tony and Julieanne Smith said the walks program, led by bushwalking author Kym Tilbrook, would start on April 7 and continue until late October.

A champagne celebration atop the Chace Range and an early morning climb to the top of Rawnsley Bluff to watch the sun rise over the Flinders Ranges are highlights of the station’s Flinders by Foot bushwalking tours. The climb to the top of St Mary Peak (1171m) is a standout, with panoramic views across the Flinders, including to Wilpena Pound, ABC and Heysen ranges. From atop the peak, eagles are often seen soaring in the valley below.

Rawnsley Station is the base for all walks, with walkers returning each night to 4-star eco villa accommodation or 3.5-star cabins. At night, they dine at the Woolshed Restaurant.
