WILPENA HERITAGE

Wilpena Station, Flinders Ranges National Park, South Australia, Australia

As I arrived early on this morning, it was hard not to be impressed by the magnificent stands of river red gums that surround Wilpena Creek and the old Wilpena Station. Surrounded by stunning views of Wilpena Pound in the distance it was easy to step back 160 years to the early settlement days of pastoral runs in the area. I really wanted to capture the heritage feeling of this site - those early settlers, enduring harsh conditions, a world of improvisation and dogged self sufficiency in a stunning landscape. As the early light reached the outlying buildings, it was hard not to feel some connection to the days gone by at this site.

Old Wilpena Station is one of South Australia's most significant pastoral settlement sites due to its well preserved condition, wealth of heritage and spectacular natural setting. An important pioneering pastoral run, Wilpena Station was established in 1851 and had a working life of 135 years, before slipping into retirement. This heritage listed site is a valuable archive of pastoral history in the Flinders Ranges and is culturally significant for both indigenous and non indigenous Australians with the site holding a continued cultural significance for the Adnyamathanha people. Wilpena Station remains the most complete group of early station buildings surviving in South Australia in an authentic pastoral landscape.

Australian Wall Art - Unframed Print

UNFRAMED PRINT

Museum quality, fine art paper and inks.

We use fine art cotton paper from either Hahnemühle or Canson. This exceptionally high quality fine art paper is acid free and printed using genuine pigment inks - favoured by galleries and collectors because of their print longevity.

As a print only, this requires framing, allowing you to select your own mounting and framing options. The listed size includes a 8cm white border around each side of the photo, allowing sufficient room to accommodate various framing choices.

Unframed prints come rolled in a protective tube, making them our recommendation for international customers.

FRAMED PRINT

A clean, simple and modern look, suitable for any home.

Small Frame:The small frame (2cm wide x 2cm deep) is limited to our smallest sizes of framed prints. Your fine art paper print is mounted with a matt border, framed and completed with acrylic that protects against 70% of UV. The listed size is for the total finished framed dimensions of this artwork

Shadow Box Frame:Your fine art paper print is mounted and framed in a contemporary shadow box frame (27mm wide x 48mm deep) that is available in white or raw wood.

It is completed with museum grade acrylic (rather than glass) as it is light weight, transports well (doesn't break) and protects against 99% of UV.

Framed prints come ready to hang. The listed size is the total finished frame size, including the frame and border around the image.

Australian Wall Art - Acrylic Wall Mount

ACRYLIC - WALL MOUNT

Frameless, glass like feel. A clean, modern look for your print. 

The photo is printed on metallic paper, creating a 'pearlescent' metallic gloss finish. The print is face mounted onto optically clear, museum grade acrylic which offers 99% UV protection.

The print is backed with treated aluminium, protecting your print from front to back. It is then finished with a diamond edge polisher.

Ready to hang on your wall, with a thin aluminium frame hidden behind the print.
