The Flinders Ranges is a rugged, majestic landscape that reveals the story of life on earth.

Picture starting your days listening to an early morning chorus of birds as the Flinders Ranges wakes up around you. On our six day Heysen Trail and Flinders Ranges trip, trekkers embark on an unforgettable journey across vast landscapes tinted with hues of red, ochre and earthy browns while our guides offer interpretation of the landscape, its fascinating geological history and rich cultural diversity. 
 
 
Spend evenings stargazing up at the Milky Way, far away from the bright city lights, as you refresh your perspective on life. Visiting highlights such as the Brachina Gorge Geological Time Trail; the spectacular Wilpena Pound, a massive bowl-like crater that spans almost 100kms and rises above the surrounding plains; Alligator Gorge, one of the Flinders Ranges’ most spectacular natural attractions; and Dutchman Stern, one of Quorn’s most breathtaking formations. Offering a glimpse into Australia’s history, this culturally rich, naturally beautiful and unforgettable landscape contains one of the most intact and rich Ediacara fossil sites in the world, proving that multicellular animal life formed over 540 million years ago. 
 
Its sweeping plains and majestic ranges are home to more than half of South Australia’s plant species, while wildlife is abundant in the landscape; from the flightless emu, red kangaroos, the yellow-footed rock wallaby, to magnificent wedge-tailed eagles, lorikeets, rosellas and other parrots. In this environment each and every season reveals its own unique joys: the warmdays and chilly nights of autumn provide ideal camping weather; winter is perfect for animal watching; while spring walkers experience an explosion of colour during wildflower season. Experience it yourself
