Flinders Ranges and Outback Visitor Guide : Flinders Ranges and Outback Visitor Guide
flindersoutback.com 27 Aboriginal EXPERIENCES The Flinders Ranges & Outback covers such a vast area of South Australia and so many different environments, it's no surprise that it is one of Australia's richest areas of Aboriginal heritage and living culture. The map at the front of this guide shows how the Adnyamathanha people of the Northern Flinders Ranges have shared country with Kuyani, Arabunna, Kokatha, Nukunu and Barngala language groups. Likewise, Arabunna language groups of the Lake Eyre region share country with Wankangurru/Yarluyandi, Adnyamathanha, Kokatha, Barngala and Antakirinja language groups, and the Yankunytjatjara people of the central interior have shared country with Antakirinja, Pitjatjantjarra, Kokatha and Eringa language groups. The natural features of the Flinders Ranges are still of strong cultural significance to the Adnyamathanha people and the geology, topography, flora, fauna and climate all feature in traditional stories and legends. Port Augusta through to the Southern Flinders Ranges is home to the Nukunu people, where you can follow their story in their Interpretive Centre in the Melrose Heritage Courthouse Centre. The Flinders Ranges & Outback showcases a range of various Aboriginal experiences. Visitors are presented with the unique opportunity to learn about Aboriginal heritage, cultures and their connection to the land. You can visit significant Aboriginal and early Australian sites on expeditions or 4WD adventures. Immerse yourself in stories for a historical view on the different cultures and heritage and how they have been passed down from Elder generations. Local food, music and dance performances are often included, all adding to the experience. Please be aware that you will need entry permits for the APY Lands in the north- west of South Australia.
