Itinerary:

Head north along the eastern side of Spencer Gulf stopping at historical coastal towns, learning about our rich maritime history.Take a stroll down the longest jetty in the Southern Hemisphere at Port Germain, once a bustling port for sail ships & sea farers.

Enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch at Mt Remarkable National Park surrounded by stunning 600 million year old rock formations and home to an abundance of native wildlife. If you enjoy bushwalking, we will take you on a one hour guided walk along beautiful tree-lined creek beds with spectacular views over the area.

Continue our journey across one of the oldest mountain ranges on earth, through the picturesque Pichi Richi Pass to Quorn. With its typical outback buildings and the original Ghan Railway station, it has been the setting for many iconic Australian films. 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 8000 living in the wild. Sit back in the 4WD as we head along the rough and dusty outback tracks through the deserted Willochra Plain where eagles soar and emus run free. Wander around deserted ghost towns with their early history of hardship where pioneers survived temporarily but eventually gave way to the unforgiving desert conditions.

Final destination today is a working sheep station at Rawnsley Park situated on the southern side of the famous Wilpena Pound. Settle into your comfortable 4 star Eco-Villa, wind down, relax and perhaps enjoy a glass of wine. We will escort you to the resort’s Award Winning Woolshed Restaurant for an evening meal (inclusive). You are welcome to spend the evening by yourselves and discuss your day of adventure in the Australian bush or be joined by your guide if you prefer.

In the morning take off from Wilpena Pound airstrip with excellent views of the Flinders Ranges. You begin your scenic flight over Wilpena Pound and Brachina Gorge before tracking north to Lake Eyre. You will fly over Parachilna, the Leigh Creek open-cut coal fields and Lake Harry. Follow the Birdsville Track to Cooper Creek Junction and cross awe-inspiring Lake Eyre. After marvelling at the wonders of this mammoth inland salt lake we will land at the outback town of William Creek (population 4 at last count). Enjoy lunch at this remote pub where the local stockmen gather. Make the return trip back to Wilpena Pound over the Andamooka opal fields and Lake Torrens.

Meals: (B) (L) (D)

Your breakfast has been placed in your Eco-Villa, ready for you to prepare; orange juice, eggs, cereal and good coffee. This morning our expert guide will take you through the spectacular Bunyeroo Gorge, visiting secluded areas of great natural beauty. Travel through the rugged creek beds of Brachina Gorge, an area alive with wildlife and a geological history dating back millions of years. This area is where the world-renowned South Australian painter Sir Hans Heysen was inspired for many of his landscapes.

Lunch is at the iconic Outback Prairie Hotel, where the adventurous can enjoy a selection of bush foods, including native preserves, kangaroo, emu and camel. A fine selection of chicken, ham and vegetarian food is also available.

Immerse yourself in the ancient landscape; take that special photograph or just enjoy some of the most spectacular outback scenery Australia has to offer; the prolific wildlife is a bonus.
