Are you looking for a new camping experience?

Brachina East Campground offers two different camping experiences on the banks of Brachina Creek and Aroona Creek. The 2WD section is located high on the southern bank while the 4WD section is reached by a rugged track across the creek. Toilet facilities are located on site.

The site has 6 2WD sites and 7 4WD sites and is accessible to caravans and camper trailers with areas suitable for tents.

Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park is situated approximately 450 kilometres north of Adelaide, in the central Flinders Ranges.

From Adelaide, take one of several routes to Hawker, then follow the signs to Wilpena (Flinders Ranges Way).

If approaching from Broken Hill, turn north at Yunta on the Arkaroola Road and follow signs to Blinman which is the Northern end of Flinders Ranges Way.

The best vehicle access to this campground is off the Flinders Ranges Way at Brachina Gorge Road (signed), after 11.7km turn right and follow the track to the campground.

The main road through the park and into Wilpena Pound is sealed. Unsealed roads with changing surfaces occur throughout the park and may be affected by weather conditions. All public roads are accessible by two-wheel drive vehicles, caravans, and trailers.

Please note: GPS Co-Ordinates are approximate and provided in most cases to get you to the National Park entrance. Once inside the park there should be signs to the actual camp grounds. Failing this please check with National Parks for further directions.
