Owner's Response: Blinman is a very small working community, who provide to visitors a quality experience in the Flinders Ranges. A glimpse of the early mining days is provided through a guided tour in the historic underground tunnels of the old copper mine.

Far from the crowds

  • 5 of 5

A great place to base youself in the Central/Northern Flinders - a bit of a drive to Wilpena but at least the road is sealed, now. No internet or mobile reception which means you really are away from the daily grind. The house was clean and comfortable - good for a family but equally good for couples or singles. Everyything necessary is supplied including ample firewood if an open fire is what you desire. We had a lovely stay even though we had one day of rain, hail and snow!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comment. The bitumen road Blinman to Wilpena is excellent. A good day circuit trip is Blinman to Wilpena, out through the Gorges, and drive to Parachilna, returning to Blinman. The road from Parachilna to Blinman is unsealed.
