Summers in Adelaide are over 40C!
There has been quite a bit of press about the recent summer trend of Adelaide eclipsing the 40 degree mark and there is no denying that this is hot. Even being right on the coast, the summer months are quite difficult to bear in Adelaide. Wilpena Pound and the Wilpena Pound Resort do note that Adelaide is the closest major city but they are quite far away, 429km, to be exact and during the trip from Adelaide to Wilpena Pound, there is a climb of over 750km in altitude which greatly contributes to much more manageable temperatures and cooler nights as well which makes the days much more bearable. Additionally, by being away from the ocean, the humidity is lower which makes the temperatures feel cooler than they are. Even if the temperature was exactly the same in Adelaide as Wilpena Pound, there would be a noticeable difference in how it feels outside at the Pound because of the lower humidity.
Wilpena Poundís Summer Temperatures
On top of being at a higher elevation and having less humidity, Wilpena Pound is going to be cooler simply because it is not a big city. The higher elevation means that you'll experience warm days and cooler nights. Part of why Adelaide is so warm is that it is a concrete jungle that holds heat at night and keeps the city warmer than even the surrounding suburbs. Wilpena Pound is an oasis far away from any large population centre. On top of this, the grasses, shrubs and trees along with its dry creek beds lined with giant river red gums in the area keep it cooler in the summer and provide shade. The resort is 1700 feet above sea level and the wind seems to be always blowing in around the Flinders Ranges area which greatly contributes to comfort.
The Facts: Wilpena Pound is Cooler Year-Round
For those who live in Adelaide, Wilpena Pound is a great place to visit to escape the summer heat. With the Wilpena Pound resort available, all the luxuries are available plus the temperatures are much more tolerable. The typical difference is at least 5 degrees, not to mention the humidity difference which makes the heat index dramatically different. With wind and shade, even the peak of the afternoon is comfortable outdoors. Flinders ranges tours can be planned in early mornings and / or late afternoons. All that is left to do is sit, relax and enjoy the shade around the swimming pool in the mid day heat.
