Wudinna, Eyre Peninsula, South Australia


South Australia

Wudinna is an ideal base to explore local natural attractions and the nearby Gawler Ranges National Park, a volcanic landscape rich with wildlife. See Ucontitchie Hill, a rock of international geological significance. It stands in complete isolation and can be see for kilometres around. Corrobinnie Hill and Polda Rock Reserve are great for bird watching. The granite sculptures of Wudinna Rock and Turtle Rock are nearby, as well as stunning west coast beaches and Pinkawillinie National Park. In Wudinna, visit the Gawler Ranges Cultural Centre, housing art and cultural displays. You can stop and admire the granite statue of The Australian Farmer which is eight metres high and weighs around 70 tonnes. Recognising the commitments of the community, from the early settlers to today, the sculpture took two years to create. Mount Wudinna is one of the largest exposed monoliths in Australia, 10 kilometres from the town. Picnic, barbecue, toilet and ample vehicle parking facilities are available there. National Highway One (Eyre Highway) bisects the town, making it easily accessible for travellers. The town also hosts the black tie Mount Wudinna Dinner Dance every two years at the base, using this spectacular backdrop for an evening of entertainment.
