Itinerary

Day 1

Your Flinders Ranges Odysseys guide will pick you up from your Adelaide hotel around 7.30am to commence your 3 day tour into the majestic Flinders Ranges. Sit back and relax while you travel through the mid-north region of South Australia stopping at the old copper mining town of Burra for morning tea and then Orroroo for lunch.

Enjoy views of Mount Remarkable as you head to the towns of Wilmington and Quorn. The majestic Flinders Ranges come into view as you get closer to the small outback town of Hawker. On the way, stop at Kanyaka Station Homestead Ruins and see what’s left of this once massive sheep and cattle station of about 950 square kilometres before arriving at Rawnsley Park Station, your home for the next two nights. 

Rawnsley Park Station overlooks the southern side of Wilpena Pound and provides the perfect base for exploring the Flinders Ranges. Late afternoon enjoy a Sunset on the Chace tour where you’ll watch the stunning sunset reflect on the Chace Range as you sip on local wine and enjoy delicious canapes. The 40-minute drive through the property provides a great opportunity to see native wildlife then finish your day with a delicious 2-course dinner in the Woolshed Restaurant, an authentic Australian converted woolshed serving delicious Modern Australian cuisine. Stay overnight at Rawnsley Park Station.

Day 2

Early this morning there will be time to take a 30 minute scenic flight with Chinta Air, to gain an appreciation of the scale and beauty of Wilpena Pound and the Heysen Range (additional cost – please ask for details).

Then spend the rest of the day touring around the southern Flinders Ranges including the local sights, picturesque Bunyeroo and Brachina Gorges and peaceful walks taking through the creek beds.

Stop at the Prairie Hotel, recognised as an “unmissable outback experience” and enjoy one of their signature Antipasto Platters for lunch, before taking the Moralana Scenic drive back to Rawnsley Park.

This evening, join a tour of the old woolshed and enjoy a 3-course Lamb Tasting food experience where local lamb from the property will be showcased, and prepared in three different and delicious courses. Clare Valley wines will be matched with each course. The dinner will finish with South Australian port and local cheeses (vegetarians will be catered for). Stay overnight at Rawnsley Park Station.

Day 3

This morning farewell your hosts and Rawnsley Park Station and head to Mt Remarkable, where you will enjoy some morning tea. 

Continue your journey through to the charmingly secluded Clare Valley, one of Australia’s oldest wine-growing regions. With its picturesque, rolling countryside, unique geography, and climate you will see why it is a premium grape growing area. Here you will enjoy wine tastings and lunch before returning to Adelaide, arriving approximately 5.30pm at your chosen accommodation.
