Flinders Ranges Road Condition Warning

Exercise caution on unsealed roads in the Flinders Ranges area - slow down due to potential flood damage at creek crossings, washouts, wheel rutting and road scouring.


Public Access Routes (PARs) are established under the Pastoral Land Management and Conservation Act 1989 (the PLMC Act) to provide public access over pastoral land without the need for travellers to ask permission from the lessee. Any travel other than that on a public road or PAR requires prior approval from the lessee of the respective pastoral lease.

PARs are not roads or part of the formal road network. They are unimproved and unsurfaced dirt tracks intended to provide four-wheel drive access in dry conditions only.

Pursuant to section 45(7) of the PLMC Act, the Pastoral Board may temporarily close a PAR for the purposes of the safety of the public, the management of stock or the carrying out of rehabilitative work on land adjacent to the route.

Current Temporary PAR Closures (until further notice)

  • Level Post Bay PAR #2 – Temporarily closed for public safety.
  • Pedirka  PAR #8 - Temporarily closed for public safety due to flood damage.
