Warraweena - the unique Outback high country of the beautiful Flinders Ranges. Only 540km north of Adelaide in the heart of the northern Flinders Ranges, Warraweena encompasses 355 sq km of the highest and most diverse geology and habitat in the area. It is an area of historical, cultural and natural significance. Access to Warraweena is via Beltana. The homestead, which is 2WD accessible, is approximately 50 minutes away from Parachilna and Leigh Creek. A 4WD vehicle is essential on most station tracks. Fuel is available at Leigh Creek, Angorichina Village and Hawker.
Warraweena has a fascinating history of Aboriginal heritage and early South Australian mining and pastoralism. Several old mine sites, including Sliding Rock, can be found within the boundary of the park. Sliding Rock (Cadnia) was a thriving township in the 1870s and remnants of many of the old buildings can still be seen. Shepherd's huts, some of which are available for overnight stays, are reminders of the bygone pastoral history of Warraweena. In 1996, Warraweena ceased being a sheep station and the lease was acquired by Wetlands & Wildlife, a non-profit company, listed on the Commonwealth Register of Environmental Organisations. To this day Warraweena is a private conservation park whose main objective is the recovery and conservation of the unique native flora and fauna of the high country in the Flinders Ranges. Many of the park's features are remote and accessible only by foot or by four wheel drive tracks suitable for experienced drivers. Many historic sites and attractive picnic and camping sites are easily accessible.
