Wangara Lookout, Wilpena

Wangara Lookout offers panoramic views over dense vegetation in the southern part of Wilpena Pound. Not one but two lookouts with viewing platforms can be easily reached via a wide level trail that starts from the visitor center, and then follows a creek through tall bush and pines before continuing past Hills Homestead. Watch out for kangaroos along the way, and pay attention to signboards near the cottage explaining the hard conditions the original settlers had to tackle with in order to survive on this inhospitable land. Amenities include restrooms and picnic tables.
