“A bad photographer's dream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

Every photographer wants to think they are good, sadly this is not always the case as one tolerantly sits through book after book of monotonous holiday happy snaps. If this is the case, visit the Flinders Ranges for your next holiday. It is impossible to take a bad photo. The scenery is breathtaking in a 360 degree panorama. So much fauna and flora you can almost become blase about it. Range of accommodation from luxury to basic camping. Powered and un-powered sites. We took a 4WD tour into off track terrain (well you wouldn't expect a drive to the shops now would you?) The history and untold stories. Settler homes in ruins but with personal effects still to be seen. Tree roots so large and smooth they look like frozen molten larva. A wood stove right in the middle of nowhere placed there for the Jackeroos comfort. There is a surprise and a story worth telling with a photo around every corner. If you take a bad photo here, then take up knitting!

“The best of South Australia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

Alligator Lodge, within the beautiful Mount Remarkable National Park is a superb spot to explore the southern Flinders ranges. The lodge, sleeping up to 10, is fully self contained. Just take your own sheets, pillows and food & drinks. As a 3 generation family we recently spent 2 nights enjoying the spectacular scenery of Alligator Gorge and Mount Maria walking trails. From the 8 year olds to the grand parents we all had a ball. Kangaroos galore, picnics, BBQ's and special memories watching the sunsets. Highly recommended.

“Needed a week to explore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2012

Started the day at Melrose, The start of the Southern Flinders Ranges. Lunch at the North Star Hotel. Climbed through the surrounding Mount Remarkable range, finding a hand dug copper mine to crawl into and then found the old saw pits used to cut big redgums into sleepers. Now that takes you back a hundred years.
Off to Wilmington to look at one of the best toy collections in Australia. Then a 3hr return journey into Alligator Gorge that left me in awe. Dinner at the Wilmington Hotel with some very friendly locals. A 5min drive to Hancocks Lookout to watch the sunset over the Eyre Penisular then back to an out of town (3kms) Stony Creek Bush Camp that topped our trip off. Tommorow is Quorn to ride the Pitchi Richi steam train with a couple of hikes planned. We will return to this bush camp tho as it is just perfect as a base camp to explore the area.
