South Australia

South Australia boasts a wide variety of environments, from spectacular coastline and long sandy beaches to the red sands of the outback and majestic mountain ranges of the Flinders, all within relatively close reach.

Adelaide, South Australia’s capital and Australia’s first city of free settlers or landed gentry, has an air of pride with wide streets, colonial architecture and abundant parklands.

Australia’s wine heartland is on the doorstep of Adelaide and midway to the accessible Outback of the magnificent Flinders Ranges. The Barossa Valley boasts over 150 years of tradition and culture, fuelled by centuries of European experience. While the entire region is renowned for its luscious shiraz, the cooler climate produces the best rieslings in Australia.

Head north into the South Australian Outback and immerse yourself in the varied habitats of the Flinders Ranges. From dry creek beds, isolated waterholes lined with 1,000 year old river red gums, craggy ridge lines and rolling hills covered in cypress pines to the ancient ramparts of Wilpena Pound, this is some of the most quintessential countryside in Australia.

Lake Gairdner

Here you can walk on the surface of the lake and look north to see the endless white plain and the striking red surrounds and islands. You may see emus and red, western grey and euro kangaroos as we drive through the ancient outback range to Kangaluna Camp. You can enjoy the stars with a computerised telescope after dinner.

Day 3
Lake Sturt

Morning is leisurely and allows plenty of time to walk through the bush near the camp. This morning you will walk on Lake Sturt in the Corrobinnie Depression and see the array of colours and patterns in the bed of the old lake. Continuing around the lake to Mt Sturt, you observe a diversity of plants and trees. Early arrival back to the camp gives the extra chance to spot some of the 110 species of birds observed at Kangaluna and the visiting animals, or relax in the stunning surrounds.
