Tour Itinerary

Aboriginal culture is very strong in Outback Australia, the outback tour visits Arabuna Community at Marre where there are often opportunities to meet Aboriginal People and experience this culture. Your guide will also be able to discuss with you the many aspects of this rich and varied culture, and will be able to show you sacred sites and ancient rock art.

 

day 1.Our epic journey departs Adelaide and heads north visiting coastal villages with their rich maritime history. By lunch time we are in the Flinders Ranges, one of oldest mountain ranges on earth. Walk through Mambray Creek National Park, where you have spectacular views of the mountains and Spencer Gulf. Enjoy lunch surrounded by towering peaks that are as old as time itself. Kangaroos and emus are abundant in this area. Travel through the picturesque Pichi Richi Pass to the classic old township of Quorn, which was once the start of the original Ghan Railway.

Head out on the dirt tracks and search for the rare Yellow Footed Rock Wallabies at Warren Gorge Conservation Park before settling in to a wholesome camp-cooked meal. Roll out your swags and sleep happy and contented under millions of stars. These camping spots are normally in pristine wilderness and remote areas, which will make your experience even more special. Tents are provided for those a little nervous about the under the stars experience.

At Marree we explore this remote outback town which is also the beginning of the famous Birdsville Track. This area has a rich history of Aboriginal culture and pioneering settlements, including many ghost towns.

Cross the Dingo Fence which is the longest man made fence in the world. This helps to keep the wild dogs up north away from the sheep stations further down. Check out Lake Eyre South, which is approximately 11m below sea level.
