Day 1

Flinders Ranges

With it's many festivals and great live music scene, South Australia’s state capital prides itself on being Australia’s arts hub – but we love it just as much for its proximity to some of the world’s greatest wines. We head out of the city pretty early on day 1, stopping for a quick coffee in Clare (a great wine region), and then continuing on to the southern Flinders Ranges National Park. There will be time for a stretch of the legs at Alligator Gorge, lunch in Quorn – home of the Pichi Richi Railway – and a guided walk to the top of the ranges at Dutchman’s Stern. Tonight’s campsite is in Warren Gorge; keep your eyes peeled for yellow-footed rock wallabies, which have bounced back from near-extinction.

Driving time is about four and a half hours. We walk for about 2 hours.
