Merna Mora Station, on the western side of Wilpena Pound in the Flinders Ranges, is a working sheep and cattle station. It's located 42 kilometres north of Hawker on the Outback Highway (the road to Parachilna, Leigh Creek, and beyond).

It's the unique location of the property that is a draw card for me to keep returning. The station is situated between Lake Torrens on one side and Wilpena Pound on the other. Access to the Moralana Track is at their front gate.
Brachina and Bunyeroo Gorges, Hawker and Parachilna are a scenic, easy drive to get to. It's the perfect base for a perfect holiday stay.The sunsets from Merna Mora are classically spectacular. A quick trip to the property's airstrip at sunset will guarantee a breathtaking sight.
Their windmill in a paddock, with Wilpena set as the backdrop is a well known and iconic Australian photo. I've had that shot on my 'bucket list' of photos for a while and was happy to have gotten it. But, more than getting the shot, I was awe inspired to have been standing in that spot watching the sun set. Nothing can compare to that experience.
5 generations "WOW". this family are obviously leading the way in succession planning for them to be there this long they must have a good handle on how to provide for all the family members. It looks like a beautiful place.
