Getting there

Drive down Rawnsley Park Rd and before you get to the campsite you will see a road on your right with a sign for Rawnsley Bluff. Follow that to the end and you will find a small carpark.

Route/Trail notes

From the carpark follow the nice relaxing flat trail to the bottom of the bluff. Then commence a steep unrelenting walk/scramble up the side of the bluff. As you climb higher the views get better and better but the best is yet to come. Eventually once you reach the top of the bluff it will flatten out quite a bit and you can make a good pace to the outlook and rock cairn at the top. The views are some of the best in the Flinders Ranges! 


Day pass into the National Park costs $12.50.

Really enjoyable walk with some breathtaking views at the summit. The track is very well marked and signposted with an enormous cairn marking the end of the walk. I found the ascent fairly similar to the top half of Mt Maroon. While we were standing at the top we saw a huge plume of sand moving in from the desert so we started hightailing it to the carpark. As we descended we discovered it was a huge storm kicking up all the sand and we made it to the car just before it unleashed upon us.
