HISTORY

Warraweena has a fascinating history of Aboriginal heritage and early South Australian mining and pastoralism.

Several old mine sites, including Sliding Rock, can be found within the boundary of the park. Sliding Rock (Cadnia) was a thriving township in the 1870s and remnants of many of the old buildings can still be seen.
Shepherd's huts, some of which are available for overnight stays, are reminders of the bygone pastoral history of Warraweena.

In 1996, Warraweena ceased being a sheep station and the lease was acquired by Wetlands & Wildlife, a non-profit company, listed on the Commonwealth Register of Environmental Organisations. To this day Warraweena is a private conservation park whose main objective is the recovery and conservation of the unique native flora and fauna of the high country in the Flinders Ranges.

Many of the park's features are remote and accessible only by foot or by four wheel drive tracks suitable for experienced drivers. Many historic sites and attractive picnic and camping sites are easily accessible.
