Scenic Drives near Hawker

We have a number of scenic drives in the area.

Moralana Scenic Drive takes you on a journey between the Hawker to Wilpena road (Flinders Ranges Way) and the Hawker to Leigh Creek road (Outback Highway).

Brachina Gorge, which incorporates the Corridors through Time Trail links two roads, the Wilpena to Blinman road and the Hawker to Leigh Creek road.

Bunyeroo Gorge, with its well photographed lookout, also links the Wilpena to Blinman road to the Brachina Gorge road.

The Hawker to Blinman road is also a pleasant drive with many lookouts on the way. While at Blinman take a Blinman Heritage mine tour, have a drink and a meal at the hotel or buy a pie at the shop.

The Parachilna Gorge is the road between Blinman and Parachilna. This road at times can be stony, like many other roads in the Flinders Ranges.

The condition of the roads is dependent on the seasons. In years of plentiful rain the springs and creeks can have running water, adding to the beauty of the drive.

Just north of Rawnsley Park turnoff is the road to Martins Well Station and Pugilist Hill lookout. From Pugilist Hill take in the panoramic view of Rawnsley Bluff and Wilpena Pound, Chace Range and the general scenery in the foreground. Don’t forget to take your camera.

Pugilist Hill is Altitude: 552m.
