Flinders Ranges Highlights

Group-guided

OVERVIEW

It’s not surprising that for decades Auswalker’s have been calling the Flinders Ranges (Ikara) out as one of Australia’s best walking destinations. On this Flinders Ranges walk, you’re granted unique access to the very heart of the Australian Outback with pack free walks that take you to Rawnsley Bluff, Dutchmans Stern, Alligator Gorge, Wilpena Pound and Black and Bridal Gaps.

The Flinders Ranges is a hiker’s, El Dorado. There’s the one of a kind colour scheme, the red ochre vistas, abandoned homesteads that pepper the landscape, eagles soaring overhead in thermal winds that sweep off the Pound and so much more you can only truly get a feeling for by walking here. There’s also a gentler side of this unique destination walking the Pound floor avoiding the territorial emus and roos as you traverse the native cypress pines and massive meandering creek beds studded with majestic river red gums.

Highlights:

  • Genuinely fully inclusive
  • Helicopter flight over the Flinders Ranges walking trails we have hiked
  • 4 nights accommodation in ensuite rooms
  • Chef prepared à la carte 2-course meals and cooked breakfasts each day
  • Easy and hard pack free walks are offered each day
  • 2 mature experienced Flinders Ranges tour guides with local knowledge of the region

ACCOMMODATION & DINING

The 2-course a la carte dinners will be prepared by the professional chefs at the Woolshed at Rawnsley. Every day we will wake to a cooked breakfast in the restaurant to ready ourselves for the upcoming walks. The packed lunches complete the circle ensuring that your appetite is always satisfied. More importantly, you can look forward to having lunch on a daily basis at some of the most incredible locations in the Flinders Ranges. Walkers lunches are enhanced by Auswalk’s famous trail mix ensuring that you’ll never be hungry on the track.

GENERAL INFO

Some tracks are rough and rocky and on those hikes, we’ll cover shorter distances. Full-day walks average 13-18 km. There are great opportunities for fit walkers to challenge themselves as there are rugged peaks to climb and remote gorges to explore.  This trip operates with two experienced, knowledgeable and fun-loving guides so we can offer easier and more challenging walk options along the way.

You’ll enjoy dining at the Woolshed Restaurant – they also have an exclusive range of boutique wines to try. Alcohol or drinks with meals are not included (except tea/coffee and juice with breakfast).

Pre and post-tour accommodation: There are many hotels in Adelaide. We pick up from and drop off at the Sage Hotel, 208 South Terrace, Adelaide.  The tour starts at 7.00 am at the Sage Hotel. We arrive in Adelaide by around 5.00 pm on the last day.

    A fantastic experience for seven friends over five days of walking. Each day was amazing and over differing terrain with brilliant views as the reward. The walks were challenging but achievable with the encouragement and assistance of our professional guides Katie and Bec who were able to offer alternatives and changes to suit our group. Nothing was too much trouble. The Woolshed restaurant provided great meals. The other experiences provided, sunset drinks and nibbles and helicopter flight over the area added that extra enjoyment to our visit. Would definitely walk again with Auswalk.

    My 3rd guided walk with Auswalk and not the last. Ably led by experienced guides/drivers/cooks Katie and Bill. The walks all require a reasonable level of sure footedness and agility, so make sure you actually enjoy being in a rugged remote location before you commit to this walk. The trip itinerary gives an accurate description of daily walking options and both easier and harder were available each day. The trails are rocky so good soled boots essential. The views are spectacular. We saw many emus, kangaroos, birds, goats and a couple of shinglebacked(?) lizards. No flies on us. Beautiful wildflowers, majestic gums and dry dry creek beds. The Auswalk team consistently maintains a high standard on all their walks and I am always delighted with their choices of accommodation and the abundance and quantity of food available. I’ll be back.

    Our sixth walk with Auswalk was to the Flinders Ranges, 200 km NW from Adelaide. The walks were spectacular, the guides wonderful and everything was organised extremely well. We can also recommend walks to Snowy Mountains, Kangaroo Island, Timeless North (Kakadu, Litchfield, Catherine in NT), Canarvon Gorge and Gold Coast Hinterland. Most days there is an easier option and the group dynamics are generally very good.

    We decided to go to the Flinders Ranges on an organised tour and were very pleased with the outcome. Having trained and enthusiastic guides made this more challenging and more fun than what we would have attempted on our own. The fully catered concept and cabin accommodation was perfect as was the modest size of the group. We saw the area from a number of vantage points and and the terrain was as spectacular as the post cards show. The food was great the company and guides great and we were able to see the Ranges in better depth and some places that I would not have expected to have visited. Thoroughly recommend Auswalks and we are now looking at other places to do this style of active holiday.

    “Just like the three previous reviewers of Colin, Andrew, and Denise, who were amongst my fellow wonderful tour walkers, I also had a great time for all the reasons they have given, including praise of Katie and Bill. Some additional highlights for me included learning about ‘Goyders Line’ and watching the green vegetation change to an arid landscape as we progressed north through Goyders Line; the stay in Melrose, including my accommodation in a truck; the history of Quorn and Hawker, lunch at the summit of St. Marys Peak with one of those views of a life time, Rawnsley Park accommodation, and especially its Woolshed Restaurant with its great meals, friendly staff and comfortable sofas, which were great for a chat or read whilst sipping a quiet Bundy Rum and coke.
    This was my third AUSWALK trek and I am looking forward to my fourth in a few months’ time”

    Have always wanted to visit the Flinders Ranges and to get up close and chose a walking holiday with Auswalks. The organisation communication and attention to detail could not be faulted. The accomodation,the meals , the otber hikers and the guides Katie and Bill could not have been better. Newbies and old hands were made welcome and everyone’s needs and abilities catered for. I would recommend not only the Flinders Ranges as a destination but will be seriously considering doing more Auswalks holidays. The highlights were the scenery and the ability to to see the ranges from the air( an optional extra).
