South Australia

Hawker is an outback town that welcomes you to the Central Flinders Ranges – the most accessible outback scenery from any capital city in Australia.

The district showcases a mix of natural and cultural attractions – unsurpassed rugged scenery, relics of the early settlers, art and craft galleries, bush pubs and unique eating places, railway history and more.

Explore the Flinders Ranges National Park, the historic Old Ghan Rail Trail or take any number of short and day trips. Walks and lookouts are available throughout the district and a variety of 4WD tracks are there for you to self-drive or enjoy with a Tour Operator. There are locally based air charter and scenic flight operators and camel rides and treks.

Walkers and bicycle riders are well catered for with both the Heysen Trail and the Mawson Trail passing near and through Hawker.
The town offers a choice of caravan and camping accommodation. The township is host to the ever popular annual Hawker Cup races, and is a gateway to Wilpena Pound and the Outback.
