We have now been to the Flinders Ranges many times, our first time in 1970. This year we travelled to the Flinders with a group from Probus then met with a group from the 4wd club for another week. There had been considerable rain and many roads were closed. “We are waiting for the graders next week” was a common call. The graders were certainly going to be busy next week.

The Parachilna Formation is composed of soft siltstone & sandstone. it was deposited during renewed flooding by the sea. It contains evidence of burrowing marine animals.
The find for this trip was Grindells Hut and surrounding areas. There was one mild water crossing into the hut making it difficult for cars. We were surprised to find a rental car on the wrong side of the crossing and escorted him out. This area is well worth a stopover. There is camping on a slight slope beside the hut or a better camping area below.
