flinders ranges national park mountains and forest in outback south australia

Flinders Ranges National Park IMG 7800 - Rugged rocky peaks dominate every view in the Flinders Ranges National Park in outback / northern South Australia. The trees that are a prominent feature of this scene are cypress pines, a species of Callitris that, when harvested from other areas where native plants do not have the protection offered by a national park, is valued for its hard and attractive timber, which is resistant to attacks by termites. The dash of red in the foreground is provided by a native hop bush, Dodonea lobulata, but the bright colour this plant adds to the landscape is that of its seed capsules, not its flowers.
