Who are we?

Friends of Flinders Ranges National Park was started in 1995 by a group of people interested in preserving the natural and pioneering assets within the Park. Early members included neighbouring pastoralists, National Park staff, and people from Adelaide and other parts of the State who simply had an affinity with the Flinders Ranges.

Today our membership also includes individuals and families from around Australia, even some from overseas. The majority of members are unable to attend the Park regularly to work on the various projects we tackle but their support through annual subscriptions enables us to complete much of our work.

Active retirees seem to be the members able to attend the Park regularly throughout the year. They have the time, and the range of talents, to contribute to our successful completion of projects and general maintenance around the Park. There are a few members still in the work force who take Annual Leave at times so that they can attend one of our working weeks in the Ikara-Flinders. There is always enough work for everybody.

Unquestionably the common factor between our members is their passion for the Ikara-Flinders Ranges and all that they offer - flora and fauna, aboriginal heritage and culture, geological features, pastoral and mining history, and the magnificent beauty that surrounds us where ever we are working.
