Whether you’re a lover of food, wine, art or nature – this is the immersive experience for you.
As Adelaidians, we love to travel. But have we all explored our own backyard? Before you pack up for the Gold Coast or the Hunter Valley, explore the Flinders Ranges. With intimate guided tour groups, luxury transportation from Mercedes Benz and a full buffet breakfast each morning at a great Australian Outback Hotel.
Flinders Ranges Odysseys has launched a new amazing six-day Flinders Ranges and Wine Experience Tour, combining our love for local food and wine with the spectacular and rugged Wilpena Pound and Flinders Ranges outback. Our Flinders Ranges have recently been recognised on the global stage as worthy of World Heritage status. This tentative listing puts the Flinders Ranges among world natural wonders such as Yosemite National Park, Machu Picchu and the Galapagos Islands.
The full experience lasts six days, starting by exploring the scenic SA outback and the 540-million-year-old Flinders Ranges in a luxury air-conditioned Mercedes Benz vehicles. And in small, intimate groups of up to eight people, accompanied by a personal local tour guide, you can go on the three-day all-inclusive Flinders Ranges Outback tour.
Over three days, visit the old copper mining town of Burra, stop at Kanyaka Station Homestead Ruins, and see what’s left of this once massive sheep and cattle station and watch the sunset overlooking the stunning Chace Range while enjoying a glass of sparkling wine and gourmet canapes on the Sunset on the Chace tour.
Explore the southern Flinders Ranges seeing local sights and the picturesque Bunyeroo and Brachina gorges, visit the famous Prairie Hotel, a loved Outback Hotel recognised as an “unmissable outback experience,” take in the phenomenal views at Mt Remarkable, and enjoy wine tasting and lunch at Clare Valley.
