Trails SA describes the Blinman Pools hike in the Flinders Ranges as ‘one of South Australia’s great short walks.’ Hiking here is an easy and adventurous twelve-kilometre meander without any real climbing. It’s full of discoveries and observations only those that get out of the car and hike will appreciate. We got back to the car five and a half hours later feeling good and not too exhausted. I chucked all the pics into a gallery at the end of this article when I got home to Adelaide.
