Be a champion
You're invited to take the challenge - trek the Ikara-Flinders Ranges, experience the arid heart of the South Australian outback, and be part of the team aiming to raise over $100,000 to support Indigenous education, health, research and community initiatives.
The University of Newcastle would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land - The Adnyamathanha People, who have permitted tourists to visit the area. We also acknowledge the traditional Aboriginal owners of the lands within the footprint areas of our campuses: Awabakal Nation, Darkinjung Nation, Biripi Nation, Worimi Nation and Wonnarua Nation.
Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park has a rich and complex cultural heritage combining Aboriginal and pastoral history. The park is co-managed by a board consisting of Adnyamathanha and Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources representatives. The Adnyamathanha people (meaning hills or rock people) are the traditional custodians of the Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park.
