Getting There & Away

Blinman is an hour north of Wilpena on a wiggly, 59km sealed road (watch out for wash-outs after rains).

From Blinman you can tackle the unsealed 32km road through Parachilna Gorge to Parachilna itself: this road is often passable in a conventional car, but be prepared for creek crossings, potholes, sandy sections and corrugations. There's a sign at the Blinman end of the road indicating its current status, or check road conditions with the Royal Automobile Association in Adelaide, online at, or the Outback Road Report on 1300 361 033.

Alternatively, Parachilna is a straight 89km dash up the sealed Outback Hwy from Hawker.

Genesis Transport stops in Parachilna ($140, eight hours) on Mondays and Thursdays on its Adelaide–Copley run, and on Tuesdays and Fridays in the other direction.
