Memories of a 5 day mountain bike and trekking  journey through the 540 million year old Flinders Ranges will stay with you forever.

Fill your senses as you cycle along silent, dusty red roads bordered by towering ancient cliffs and deep craters with parrots, yellow-footed rock wallabies, kangaroos and emus as your only companions. 

Tempt your taste buds with bush tucker. Dine in style from European and Asian style cuisine at the famous Prairie Hotel in Parachilna. Sample quandong pies in Blinman and wash it down with a glass of famous South Australian wine from Bundaleer Wines - one of the largest producers in the Southern Flinders Ranges. 

 

DAY 1 | Arrive Adelaide

Our staff will meet you at Adelaide Airport and you will be coached from here to our accommodation in the Flinders Ranges. Settle back for the journey which takes us first through rich farmland before we traverse the Southern Flinders before arriving at our destination.
