Brachina Gorge has an amazing array of flora and fauna and today we took a scenic drive through this stunningly beautiful and ancient landscape..
We travelled along what is often referred to as “Corridor Through Time” on a self-guided tour of the gorges.
Hans Heysen, later Sir Hans, the German-born Australian artist spent a great deal of his life in the Flinders Ranges, capturing the beauty of the area in water-colours. He summed up the Flinders Ranges landscape when he said it is “the bones of the earth laid bare”.
It was great to see first-hand the landscape that inspired so many of his paintings prior to his passing in 1968.
This evening we are going to take time to watch the lunar eclipse as the full moon rises over the rugged Flinders Ranges landscape.
