If you love the bush, you will enjoy bushwalking in the Bendleby Ranges. We are a certified eco-tourism and productive property managed sustainably, enabling you to walk amongst the native flora and fauna in the fresh air, and be serenaded by the local birdlife. Maybe discover an echidna, or an emu nest, or an old man kangaroo along the way, you will enjoy some great scenery, with views south towards Black Rock Peak, north towards Wilpena, east towards Broken Hill, and west to the Oladdie Hills. Bird and flora lists can be found at the Office to help with the identification of species.
Maps for walking/hiking at Bendleby Ranges will give you choices of short or long walks – easy or demanding. Talk to our staff and try some of the suggested walks/hikes in the Bendleby and Hungry Ranges.
Progressive and leisure walkers are also able to pre-organise tailored routes with staff to suit individual needs of time, distance, and expertise. Walkers can arrange meeting points where water and firewood can be supplied, creating a safe and monitored, yet tranquil, experience.
When walking in the hills, we suggest you take:
- Water and snacks
- Protection from the sun
- Good walking shoes
- A jacket for the cooler part of the day
"I thoroughly enjoy the creeks and bushwalking each time I have been here – just so peaceful and sleepy, hidden away from the 'rat race'". - Frieda & Gerald Robb, Morphett Vale
