South Australian Landscape

Australian topography based on the AGSO-AUSLIG 9 second DEM

 

The Mount Lofty and Flinders Ranges form a prominent topographic feature on the continental scale, partly because they are surrounded by unusually low lying country, much of which is below sea level. While the Flinders Ranges contains some of the most rugged terrain in the South Australia, the highest part of state is in the far west in the Musgrave Ranges, with Mount Woodruffe reaching 1440 m, compared with St Mary Peak in the Flinders Ranges at 1188 m, and Mount Lofty at 710m.
