  • 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 for a picnic lunch. If you wish, join our guide for a one hour bush walk where you will be surrounded by 600 million year old mountain peaks and spectacular views over Spencer Gulf.
  • Venturing further north, we travel through the picturesque Pichi Richi Pass to the historic township of Quorn (the start of the original Ghan Railway). Check out the old railway building which is still used today for the famous steam trains. 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 8000 living in the wild.
  • Sit back in the vehicle as we head 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 Rawnsley Park, a working sheep station situated on the southern side of Wilpena Pound where you can take advantage of watching sunset over the Chase Range.
  • We offer a wide range of accommodation options here from Camping to Luxury Eco Villas. No matter what accommodation you choose you are welcome to join the group for a relaxing evening around the campfire.

  • DAY 2 Rawnsley Park Station
  • Visit one of the Outback’s unique icons, Wilpena Pound (known to the local aboriginal people as Ikara) where the flora is diverse and wildlife abundant. You will have the opportunity to take another guided walk following the tree-lined creek beds to Wangara Lookout that offers magnificent views into the pound itself.
  • Explore the ancient mountain ranges including Bunyerooand Brachina Gorges (also called the Corridors Through Time). Become a geologist for the day and view some of the oldest rock formations in the world including fossils from the Ediacara Period, the beginning of life on earth!

Head back through the magnificent Southern Flinders Ranges with its mighty Red Gum forests to Melrose, the oldest town, settled in 1853. Check out the historic buildings such as the Old Outback Police Station, Gaol, Court House and Jaccas Brewery.
