Aboriginal Culture

Martins Well is a major cultural area of the Flinders Ranges. Many dreamtime stories and sites are around Martins Well.

The Akurra, the dreamtime serpent, features heavily in stories at Martins Well, and the bodies and spirits of the Akurra can found at numerous places on Martins Well (care needs to be taken as to not disturb these Akurra, as they are very powerful and disturbance can lead to bad things happening to anyone who unsettles them). Upon visiting Martins Well you will learn all about the Cultural aspect, and will leave with a new appreciation of the First Australians.
