Flinders Ranges and Outback True adventure in ancient landscapes

The timeless grandeur of this captivating region moves all who visit. Towering ancient cliffs and deep craters border dusty red roads. Take an aerial tour of Kati-Thanda-Lake Eyre or drive along the Aboriginal Dreaming Trail. Marvel at Ikara-Wilpena Pound, an enormous amphitheatre created through erosion over millions of years – or look up at night for a sky show like never before. A journey to the Flinders Ranges and Outback will stay with you forever. Be surrounded by mountain ranges, spectacular gorges and sheltered creeks only five hours’ drive from Adelaide (or a short plane ride with Rex to Port Augusta, Coober Pedy or Ikara-Wilpena Pound).
