Touring the Magnificent Flinders Ranges

Vast, ancient and inspirational mountains in the desert.  An abundance of kangaroos, emus and other native animals, pioneering towns and colourful local characters are all to be found in the real Australian outback.

Escape to the real Australian outback.

The majestic Flinders Ranges, the oldest geological landscape on earth, have inspired visitors from around the world. 

Generations of artists, photographers and writers have come here to capture its dramatic red sunsets, magnificent wildflowers and the kangaroos, wallabies and emus which roam this ancient land. 

Aboriginal rock art high in the ridge-tops and sea-bed fossils in the massive gorges below, provide the timeless context for this magical place.  Four-wheel drive tours, overnight walking trails and rugged bush campsites are just some of the ways you can experience the best of it yourself.

Here’s our suggestions to help you plan your trip to the Flinders.
