Embracing the Flinders Ranges at Wilpena Pound

Our time at Wilpena Pound has been calm and relaxing, mostly due to the fact that we have had a solid 7 days here. After a couple of consecutive driving days the kids were starting to get a little restless.

We are staying in the powered site section of the Wilpena Pound Resort Camping Area. There is a steady stream of people coming and going from this area which has provided a daily experience for the kids to find new friends to play with.

Natalie and I have also enjoyed the impromptu chats we are having with other travellers, which in many cases leads to an exchange of tips about local sites to visit or where the next cheapest fuel stop might be!

This is the first time on the trip we have set up the “outdoor space” with gazebo, tables, chairs and cooking\washing area. This is my preferred set up for cooking as you have the freedom of space of the outdoors, and even though it can a little cool, that is all part of experience of living on the road.

St Mary’s Peak is our daily backdrop!

There has been lots for the kids to explore here. The bikes came down from the roof racks and have been an important element of exploring the camping ground and meeting friends at neighbouring sites.

As a family we have attempted a couple of the walking trails on offer here with a mixture of success sometimes having to accept that “ok, one of us has to turn back with Matisse and Tobias!” moments. šŸ˜‰

Around the campsite the kids have been using lots of their creativity and imaginative play skills.

Tennis and down ball have also been very popular activities on the road near our camp site.

Uno, “Go Fish” and Memory are part of the daily activities for us this week.
