“The Flinders Ranges – well known to tourists, photographers, and artists – have a history as colourful as the cliffs, peaks, and “wild hops” for which they have become famous.  Explorers who “discovered” lakes that did not exist … settlers who battled with dingoes and aborigines … copper-miners who one after another lost their fortunes … the great drought of the eighteen-sixties, which laid bare the countryside and bankrupted almost every settler in the ranges … Afghan camel-drivers … an unknown race of aborigines who thousands of years ago made carvings in the rocks ... the Missions that led to the founding of the Flying Doctor Service – these are some of the features that make up “The Story of the Flinders Ranges”.”
