Experience The flinders Ranges

The Flinders Ranges rise up from the north end of the Spencer Gulf, only 220km from Adelaide and expand a further 800km, and are known as the gateway to the outback. You can hike and discover the incredible wildlife along the way. You can hire a 4WD or car, get on the train, or simply hop on a tour bus which will take you to any of the major attractions. These include Alligator Gorge in Mt Remarkable National Park, Brachina Gorge, and the ironstone capped ridge nicknamed the Great Wall of China. It is better to explore the ranges during the winter when it is cooler, but tours run all year round.

Port Kenny to The Flinders Ranges

The Flinders Ranges are the biggest mountain range in South Australia, starting around 200 km north of Adelaide. These magnificent ranges stretch for over 430, all the way from Port Pirie to Lake Callabonna. Its most impressive landmark is the Wilpena Pound, a large curved formation creating a natural amphitheatre, this landmark covers 80 km and has the range's tallest peak. For active groups the Heysen Trailand Mawson track through the ranges provides a beautiful long distance trail for hikers, cyclists or horse-riders. There are also many bird species to be seen from these areas, including parrots, emus and eagles, as well as being a very popular home for many reptiles, the ranges offer a chance to see goannas, snakes, dragon lizards, and geckos.
