itinerary

DAY 1. SUNARRIVE ADELAIDE

After your arrival into Adelaide, enjoy the rest of the day at your leisure before checking in to your accommodation. OVERNIGHT: ibis Adelaide

DAY 2. MONADELAIDE TO FLINDERS RANGES

You are about to be immersed in a folkloric pocket of Australia where legends were born. Your outback Eco Safari begins when you head north from Adelaide along the coast through Port Wakefield and Port Germein, and onward to the southern Flinders Ranges to Mount Remarkable National Park. It’s here you’ll explore 600 million year old mountain peaks and enjoy gorgeous views over Spencer Gulf before venturing further through picturesque Pichi Richi Pass and Quorn – once the starting point of the original Ghan Railway. OVERNIGHT: 3 nights Wilpena Pound Resort (B,L,D)

DAY 3. TUEFLINDERS RANGES AND LAKE EYRE

Today, prepare for a flight you’ll never forget. Your first breathtaking scene is the Flinders Ranges from above, as you head toward the awesome spectacle of Wilpena Pound and Brachina Gorge before tracking north to the fabled inland salt pan of Lake Eyre. Fly over Parachilna, Leigh Creek and Lake Harry. Land at the outback town of William Creek and experience lunch at this remote pub where locals gather. (B,L,D)

DAY 4. WEDBUNYEROO AND BRACHINA GORGES

After taking in the incredible beauty of the natural amphitheatre that is Wilpena Pound, today you’ll learn more about the unique geology of the area as you explore Bunyeroo and Brachina Gorges – home to some of the oldest rock formations and fossils on earth. (B,L,D)

DAY 5. THUFLINDERS RANGES TO ADELAIDE

The final day of your Eco Safari begins on foot with an early morning bush walk to an ancient rock art site of great spiritual significance to the Adnyamathanha people. The journey back to Adelaide descends the magnificent Southern Flinders Ranges toward the acclaimed wine country of the Clare Valley, where you’ll enjoy a personalised tour and tasting at Sevenhills Winery. OVERNIGHT: 3 nights ibis Adelaide (B,L)

DAY 6. FRILEISURE DAY

Today is yours to enjoy a stroll around Adelaide’s shopping district or take a tram to beautiful beachside Glenelg. (B)

DAY 7. SATLEISURE DAY

Australia’s food and wine capital has plenty of options to enjoy but if you’d like to experience another of the State’s famous wine growing regions, we have the perfect day trip. (B)

WE RECOMMEND – McLaren Vale Winery Experience $180 per person.
This small group tour to McLaren Vale along the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula includes four cellar door experiences and a delicious restaurant lunch with a glass of wine included. The region is best known for its Shiraz but expert vignerons will explain why Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay grapes also thrive in this unique microclimate.
