The park is co-managed by a board consisting of Adnyamathanha and Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources representatives.

Aboriginal peoples have occupied, enjoyed and managed the lands and waters of this State for thousands of generations. For Aboriginal first nations, creation ancestors laid down the laws of the Country and bestowed a range of customary rights and obligations to the many Aboriginal Nations across our state.
There are many places across the State that have great spiritual ificance to Aboriginal first nations. At some of these places Aboriginal cultural protocols, such as restricted access, are promoted and visitors are asked to respect the wishes of Traditional Owners. In places where protocols are not promoted visitors are asked to show respect by not touching or removing anything, and make sure you take all your rubbish with you when you leave.
Aboriginal peoples continue to play an active role in caring for their Country, including in parks across South Australia. When European settlers moved into the Flinders Ranges in the s their arrival was not welcomed by the Adnyamathanha people. However, the settlers discovered that the land was rich enough to fatten their stock, and so colonisation of the northern Flinders Ranges began.
The settlers established themselves in the areas of Wilpena, Arkaba and Aroona. These were the choice areas with easy access to water. Conflicts soon arose between the settlers and local people who were now denied the water that had always been available to them. In retaliation, the Adnyamathanha people stole the settlers' sheep which resulted in murders and reprisal killings. However, despite these clashes Aboriginal stockmen and housekeepers later became an integral part of station life. Today many Adnyamathanha people live and work in the area.
Rock art, stone arrangements, occupation sites, graves and ochre quarries are reminders of the area's cultural heritage and are of ificance to the Adnyamathanha peoples' connection to country. ByEuropean settlement had spread far beyond the ranges.
Copper mining was booming and the track from Port Augusta was busy with bullock teams heading north with mining equipment and stores, and south with copper and wool. From to no rain fell over the ranges causing the widespread saltbush plains to be stripped bare. Huge stock losses were recorded and several species of native animals became extinct.
Many runs were deserted and mining came to a standstill. When the rain returned, grasses replaced the saltbush, deserted runs were reoccupied and fences and boundary riders replaced shepherds. Today, the pastoral industry continues with greatly improved practices and sustainable quantities of stock. Fluctuating commodity prices have forced pastoralists to diversify in recent years, with many local pastoralist families developing tourism operations on their own properties. There are many historical remains from pastoral and mining activities, dating back to at the restored Old Wilpena Station.
The award-winning interpretive trail tells the stories of early pastoral life. Old Wilpena Station is one of the most scenically spectacular pastoral settlements in South Australia. A working station for years, Old Wilpena Station slipped into retirement in The settlement is now a tranquil archive of pastoral history. Old Wilpena Station is also an important Aboriginal heritage site. Wilpena Pound and the Wilpena Station lands have enduring cultural ificance for the Adnyamathanha people of the Flinders Ranges.
