Head north along the eastern side of Spencer Gulf stopping at historical coastal towns, learning about our rich maritime history.Take a stroll down the longest jetty in the Southern Hemisphere at Port Germain, once a bustling port for sail ships & sea farers.
Enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch at Mt Remarkable National Park surrounded by stunning 600 million year old rock formations and home to an abundance of native wildlife. If you enjoy bushwalking, we will take you on a one hour guided walk along beautiful tree-lined creek beds with spectacular views over the area.
Continue our journey across one of the oldest mountain ranges on earth, through the picturesque Pichi Richi Pass to Quorn. With its typical outback buildings and the original Ghan Railway station, it has been the setting for many iconic Australian films. 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 4WD as we head along the rough and dusty outback tracks through the deserted Willochra Plain where eagles soar and emus run free. Wander around deserted ghost towns with their early history of hardship where pioneers survived temporarily but eventually gave way to the unforgiving desert conditions.
Final destination today is a working sheep station at Rawnsley Park situated on the southern side of the famous Wilpena Pound. Settle into your comfortable 4 star Eco-Villa, wind down, relax and perhaps enjoy a glass of wine. We will escort you to the resort’s Award Winning Woolshed Restaurant for an evening meal (inclusive). You are welcome to spend the evening by yourselves and discuss your day of adventure in the Australian bush or be joined by your guide if you prefer.
