Day 1 Adelaide to Rawnsley Park
The Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park offers an accessible outback experience less than six hours by car from Adelaide. En route north, break for lunch in the Clare Valley, a premium wine region renowned for its Riesling, Shiraz and Cabernet, with over 30 historic cellar doors to explore. As you continue your journey, marvel as the vineyards and rolling hills give way to vast desert scrub framed by mountains on the horizon. On arrival at Rawnsley Park, settle into your self-contained luxury Eco Villa, take a dip in the communal pool and dine at the Woolshed Restaurant, where Rawnsley Park lamb is the speciality.
Day 2 Rawnsley Park to Chace Range
This morning enjoy some time at leisure to perhaps cycle or hike the picturesque local trails surrounding the station. After lunch, depart for an exhilarating 15 minute helicopter flight over the spectacular natural amphitheatre of Wilpena Pound, before landing in a remote spot on the Chace Mountain Range. Here, your helicopter pilot will set up camp and start heating your dinner over the campfire, before leaving you to relax and watch the surrounding landscape come alive with deep reds and golden hues as the sun sets over the ranges. Sleep soundly in your secure deluxe canvas swag tent, under the star-dotted outback sky.
Day 3 Chace Range to Rawnsley Park
This morning cook up your own bush breakfast on the camp fire before you are met by your expert local guide for the five mile hike back to the station. Venture through the ridges of the Chace Range, learning of the fascinating geology of the region and in addition to ubiquitous kangaroos, you’re likely to also spot inquisitive emu, cockatoos and soaring wedge-tailed eagles.
Day 4 Rawnsley Park to Adelaide
Enjoy a final morning before returning to Adelaide.
