DAY 1 FRIDAY

Commence your wilderness journey by heading north via the old coastal towns of Port Wakefield and Port Germein, which boasts the longest wooden jetty in the Southern Hemisphere. During the safari your Eco Tour Guide will introduce you to a remarkable and resilient history of both Aboriginal and white settlement in S.A.. Continue into the Southern Flinders Ranges to Mount Remarkable National park. If you wish, join a one hour bush walk where you will be surrounded by 600 million year old mountain peaks and spectacular views over the Spencer Gulf. Travel through the picturesque Pichi Richi Pass to the historic township of Quorn (the start of the original Ghan Railway). Then follow in the path of our early explorers and head to Warrens Gorge Conservation Park to search for the rare and elusive yellow-footed rock-wallabies. Dramatic rock formations and outcrops harbour these endangered wallabies with an estimate of only 8,000 living in the wild. Head out along the rough and dusty outback tracks through the deserted Willochra Plain where eagles soar and emus run free. Check out old ghost towns with their early history of hardship where pioneers survived temporarily but eventually gave way to the unforgiving desert conditions. Onto the comfort of the award winning Wilpena Pound or Rawnsley Park resort.
