Be amazed by the beauty of the Southern Flinders Ranges, 600 million year old mountain peaks and spectacular views over Spencer Gulf.
Travel through the picturesque Pichi Richi Pass to the historic township of Quorn. With its typical outback buildings and the original Ghan Railway station, Quorn has been the setting for many iconic Australian films.
Follow in the path of our early explorers driving to Warren Gorge Conservation Park to search for rare and elusive Yellow-Footed Rock Wallabies. Dramatic rock outcrops harbour these endangered wallabies with only an estimated 8,000 living in the wild.
Sit back in the comfortable, fully equipped 4WD vehicle as we head along the remote tracks through the deserted Willochra Plains where eagles soar and emus run free.
