Artimore to Yanyanna

Patawarta Gap offers views over Narrina Station to the north and Blinman to the south. We have time to explore here – perhaps a forward return trip to Wilpena or a look up Old Blinman Road. A diversion down Brachina Gorge is also possible (16km round trip).

A small detour to Aroon Ruins has some nice views
