Day One

Pick up from Adelaide bus at 7am. Visit historical coastal towns and learn about South Australia’s rich maritime history. Enjoy a picnic lunch at Mambray Creek National Park; surrounded by 600 million year old mountains and an abundance of wildlife. Continue our journey, though the rugged Flinders Ranges (one of the oldest mountain ranges on earth) taking in the historic township of Quorn.

Search for the elusive yellow-footed rock wallaby at Warrens Gorge. Overnight at Merna Mora sheep Station on the South Western side of Wilpena Pound.

DAY 2

After a hearty breakfast, we head out along the Moralana Scenic Drive and Stokes Hill Lookout; enjoy the vista, soak up the clean air, savour the solitude and capture some very special photos. At Blinman, a local mining expert will take you deep underground. Explore the copper mine with its many shafts and be enthralled by stories of the hardy Welsh miners. From here we head further North, through the Gammon Ranges National Park and onto the world famous Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary.

DAY 3

This morning your experienced guide will take you on an exhilarating adventure via the world renowned 4WD Ridge Top Tour! Buckle up and hang on as your vehicle carefully transverses the steep terrain to the top of Sillers Hill Lookout.

Head west through the awe inspiring scenery of the Gammon Ranges and the Aboriginal community of Nepabunna. Arrive at the historic Beltana Homestead and settle in. Enjoy a drink around the campfire and reminisce about a day filled with adventure and what better way to end the day than a spot of star gazing?

With clear skies, clean air and more stars than you could hope for, it is something dreams are made of!

DAY 4

Explore the old woolshed (once one of the most important in the land) and check out the stone monument erected in memory of Ernest Giles, who set out on a death defying journey from Beltana, all the way to Perth, Western Australia in 1875 - one of Australia’s most famous pioneering expeditions. We now make our way through the world famous Brachina Gorge. Known as the corridors through time, you will find geological formations that date back to the beginning of time. This area is quite unique and continues to attract geologists, painters, and photographers from around the globe - its nature at its very best! In the afternoon, join our guide for a bushwalk into Wilpena Pound then watch sunset over the chase range at Rawnsley Park Station where we spend the night.

Day 5

Take an early morning walk amongst the towering peaks. Listen to the unique sounds of the Australian bush. After breakfast we will head south to the beautiful little village of Melrose. As we travel through the Southern Flinders Ranges the landscape will change. We find ourselves entering the lush rural landscapes of the south, including the world famous wineries of the Clare valley.

Lunch is provided at the Country Stone Hut Bakery, where the delicacies are handmade and the bread and pastries are cooked in the wood oven. Last stop on this epic journey, is the Seven Hills Winery for some well-deserved tasting of the local drop.
