Walking in the Flinders Ranges is one of the truly unique travelling experiences this country has to offer. Together with our walking partners at Park Trek we visit the many renowned landmarks including Wilpena Pound, the Heysen Trail, Mount Remarkable National Park and Alligator Gorge. 

This 7-day fully accommodated trip includes all transport and delicious meals and has us staying in some excellent locations, with all of the amenities on hand after a day’s trekking. If you’ve longed to get to the Flinders Ranges but wanted to do so in comfort, then this is the trip for you. 

Located just over 350kms north of Adelaide, the Flinders Ranges includes several well-known national parks and walking trails. Both the Heysen Trail and Mawson Trail span several hundred kilometres and provide a multitude of sights and attractions for walkers. 

You’ll see plenty of native flora and fauna in their natural habitats, from Yellow Footed Rock Wallabies in Brachina Gorge to the Sturt’s Desert Pea (the floral emblem of South Australia) growing freely throughout the bushland.

Bike n Hike, Margaret River Region

`Had a wonderful weekend away, getting to enjoy the beauty of nature, that gets the senses activated. Fresh coastal air, stunning wild flowers, the sound of the ocean and rugged coastline. A lovely group of women as always, with tasty meals, and dessert. Accomodation in a great location. Biking with experienced guides in the national park as the backdrop, just adds to the adventure.

Bibbulmun Track Weekender Donnelly River Region

This was my first experience of serious hiking, and what a way to start. I was very impressed with the way the whole weekend was run, from the time we were picked up on Friday until we were dropped off on Monday we were all looked after magnificently. I also learned so much by talking to both of the guides and other members of the group who were more experienced that myself.
