Flinders Ranges Odysseys has launched a new ultimate three-day Flinders Ranges Outback Tour beginning 3 April 2020. This amazing tour offers exclusive accommodation and incredible food and wine, all while discovering the spectacular and rugged scenery of Wilpena Pound and the magnificent Flinders Ranges.
Over three-days, guests will explore the 540 million-year-old Flinders Ranges in luxury air-conditioned Mercedes Benz vehicles, in small, intimate groups of up to eight people, accompanied by a personal local tour guide.
Accommodation is at the award-winning Rawnsley Park Station in luxurious Eco Villas or one-bedroom Holiday Units. Overlooking the southern side of Wilpena Pound and surrounded by seclusion and breath-taking views, Rawnsley Park Station provides the perfect base for exploring South Australia's beautiful Flinders Ranges.
Departing from Adelaide, day one visits the old copper mining town of Burra for morning tea and Orroroo for lunch before arriving at Rawnsley Park Station. 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.
That afternoon admire the beauty of the Flinders Ranges on a Sunset on the Chace tour. With Wilpena Pound as the backdrop, see a picturesque sunset overlooking the stunning Chace Range, while enjoying a glass of sparkling wine and gourmet canapes.
Finish the day off with a delicious two-course dinner in Rawnsley Park Station’s Woolshed Restaurant - an authentic Australian converted woolshed serving delicious Modern Australian cuisine.
Day two begins with an opportunity to take an early morning scenic flight with Chinta Air (additional charges apply), to gain a true appreciation of the scale and grandeur of Wilpena Pound.
Then spend the morning touring the southern Flinders Ranges seeing the local sights, the picturesque Bunyeroo and Brachina gorges and partake in one of the many peaceful walks.
Enjoy a scenic drive to the Prairie Hotel, Australia’s #1 Outback Hotel recognised as an “unmissable outback experience”. Indulge in one of their signature Antipasto Platters, before taking the Moralana Scenic drive back to Rawnsley Park.
That evening join a tour of the old woolshed before being treated to a mouth-watering three-course Lamb Tasting food experience. Try local lamb from the property, showcased, and prepared in three different courses, served with matching Clare Valley wines. Finish off dinner with South Australian ports and local cheeses.
On the final day enjoy morning tea and the phenomenal views at Mt Remarkable, before continuing to the charmingly secluded Clare Valley, to meander through the countryside of one of Australia’s oldest wine growing regions dating back 150 years.
Here enjoy wine tastings and a delicious three-course lunch before returning to Adelaide.
