2 Day Southern Flinders Ranges

Enjoy two days 4WD touring the magnificent Southern Flinders Ranges travelling through ancient ranges in pristine untouched Australia away from the tourist crowds.


Day One

We depart Adelaide for Port Augusta at 7:00 am, travelling via Port Pirie and Port Germein, then enjoy a short walk into Telowie Gorge. Telowie Gorge Conservation Park is home to the rare and beautiful Yellow-footed Rock Wallaby.

We then continue on to Port Augusta and visit the Wadlata Outback Centre, where we learn about the origins of the Flinders Ranges, the Aboriginal Dreaming, Explorers, and much more.

After lunch we head into the Southern Flinders Ranges, visiting the quaint townships of Wilmington and Melrose. At Melrose you can enjoy a short bushwalk into the Mount Remarkable National Park (the 1500km Heysen Trail passes close by).

We stay at Mount Remarkable Hotel Motel overnight.


Day Two

After breakfast we travel to Orrorroo to see a magnificent 900 year old River Red Gum. It is South Australia's largest River Red Gum, with a 10 metre circumference.

The next stop is the Pekina Ranges for a Top of the Range 4WD tour. The ancient ranges rise 750 metres (2,400 feet) above sea level and give spectacular views in every direction. We then engage 4WD and climb up to the ridge tops through the Sheoak Groves and large stands of Yakka trees, some of which are thought to be over 600 years old.

After enjoying the serenity of the Pekina Ranges, we head back to Adelaide travelling via the picturesque Clare Valley wine-making region. If time permits, we may have the opportunity to sample some of the local wines before arriving in Adelaide at 6:00 pm.
