The largest mountain range in South Australia, the Flinders
Ranges stretch over 265 miles in length, and boast some of the most
diverse mountain terrain in the country. The Ranges' most famous
landmark, and a must-see spot, is Wilpena Pound, a beautiful
natural amphitheatre best seen from above on a scenic flight.
For those who prefer to keep their feet on the ground, the
four-day Arkaba Walk takes guests on a classic Aussie bush walk
through the ranges. Thanks to the diversity of the scenery, and the
added bonus of 600 million years of geological history, this is one
of our favourite 'Great Walks of Australia' and will see trekkers
sleeping in swag beds, stargazing far from any light pollution and
dining on seriously good local bush cuisine.
It's hard to believe Adelaide is just five hours' drive
