“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.”
