local news

Iconic tourism destination Wilpena Pound is set to receive a 3-million-dollar upgrade investment by the state government and Indigenous Business Australia (IBA).

The upgrade is part of a 130-million-dollar investment across the state in a bid to boost nature and conservation park-based tourism.

The Flinders Ranges have been the hot topic of regional tourism since the pandemic, with intrastate visitors almost doubling between March and June 2020 - going from 66,000 overnight stays to 120,000.

The 3-million-dollar joint investment by the Marshall Government and IBA will upgrade the entire visitor experience, with works scheduled to start in coming months.

Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park is co-managed with the Traditional Owners of the land, the Adnyamathanha people.
