Welcome to Adelaide, a creative metropolis renowned for its calendar of events, festivals and culture scene.
We recommend arriving a day in advance of your tour, as you depart today from the Terrace Hotel at 7.30am for your road trip through the outback to Mount Remarkable National Park, known for its towering cliffs and deep craters, spectacular gorges and sheltered creeks.
After a stop at Port Wakefield for a tour briefing at a local coffee shop, you’ll arrive at Mambray Creek Reserve for your first walk of this spectacular tour. A gentle beginning to five days of on-foot exploration, you’ll negotiate the red-brown path through soaring gums. Keep a vigilant eye out for emus, kookaburras and kangaroos who nonchalantly bounce away as you trek to Davey’s Gulley, affording spectacular vistas across Spencer Gulf and Whyalla.
After your hike, enjoy lunch before you’re whisked to Rawnsley Park Station. Sitting on the edge of Wilpena Pound, this functioning sheep station, which dates from around 1851 and has 2,000 sheep grazing on its 30,000 acres, is the perfect place from which to explore Wilpena Pound. A dramatic, eerie scene, the 800-million-year-old natural amphitheatre is the centrepiece of the Flinders Ranges National Park.
Relax with nibbles this evening around the campfire, with breathtakingly clear skies glittering above, as your trek guides prepare a delicious two-course dinner.
