Flinders Ranges 7 days

Self-guided

Self-guided

OVERVIEW

The Heysen Trail, some 1200 km of it,  is rated as one of the world’s premier long-distance trails. It begins in the Northern Flinders Ranges carving a path through and sometimes up and over the ranges. Its terminates in Cape Jervis in the South of South Australia, having made its way through places like Claire and the Maclaren vale.  We hike what’s unreservedly considered the most scenic section of the track.

This walk is a shortened version of the 8-day itinerary, missing a lengthy 19 km day that can’t be shortened. The Northern Flinders has some of the most stunning outback scenery in Australia, rivalling anything in the interior. Its accessibility from Adelaide gives it a distinct advantage over some of the more lauded destinations, like the Kimberley, as it comes at a fraction of the cost and time commitment. The pay off is more than just the time saved, but the only way to find out is to walk it, as it is impossible to access otherwise. Hike from Aroona Ruins in the North of the Northern Flinders via Trezona and Yanyanna Huts to Wilpena, Tanderra Saddle all the way to Black Gap.

Highlights:

  • At the end of each day, you’ll have the luxury of having a hot shower, a chef-prepared dinner and a cooked breakfast (see inclusions)
  • Hike on the Heysen Track from Aroona Ruins to Black Gap with just a light day pack
  • Walks include Rawnsley Bluff and Tanderra Saddle/St Mary’s Peak
  • Baggage transfers from accommodation  to accommodation
  • Outback hospitality and the comfort of ensuite rooms
  • Mostly chef-prepared 2-course dinners
  • Accommodations that are in stunning locations so you never feel like you’ve left the track (Upgrade available at Rawnsley)

DAY 1
RAWNSLEY PARK TO ANGORICHINA

The walk starts at Rawnsley Park in the afternoon from where you’ll be transferred to Angorichina Village at the very top of there Northern Finders. There may be time to walk the Blinman Pools walk or explore near the accommodation, which is located right at the foot of the mountains.  This is a remote location at the furthest end of the Northern Flinders, and has very few visitors so you’re sure to enjoy the serenity. In fact, I’d be very surprised you saw anyone during the first 2 days of walking the Heysen.

Walking: Easy walking around Angorichina/ Blinman Pools walk / 3-10 kms

Meals: Dinner at Angorichina

Accommodation: Angorichina Village in the Heysen Cabins with an ensuite

DAY 2
AROONA RUINS TO YANYANNA HUTS ON HEYSEN TRAIL

Today’s hike is full of ascents and descents, the track traverses the ABC Range with incredible 360-degree panoramic views of the mountains and surrounding plains.  The track makes its way via the Brachina Formation, one of the oldest rock formations on the planet. This walk includes one of the most intact and rich Ediacara fossil sites in the world. These 600-million-year-old rock formations are older and are touted as being once taller than the Himalayas. They’ve been worn down by time. The last section of today’s walk from Trezona to Yanyanna is through an open flat valley typical of the Flinders region.

Walking: Challenging / 25km / 6–7 hrs / shorter 14km option available

Meals: Continental/cooked breakfast (breakfast provisions provided) walkers lunch and a chef-prepared a la carte dinner at the Blinman

Accommodation: Rawnsley Park Station in rooms with ensuites

DAY 3
YANYANNA HUTS TO WILPENA POUND ON HEYSEN TRAIL

The walk from Yanyanna to Wilpena is characterised by its greater variety of landscape; it includes beautiful forest and gullies, including an exploration of the beginnings of Bunyeroo Gorge. You get your first expansive views of St Mary Peak as you walk alongside the Heyesen Range. The Flinders Ranges is also home to more than half of South Australia’s 3100 plant species, and famous for the wildflowers that carpet the plains and foothills during spring.

Walking: Moderate to Challenging / mostly flat terrain / 24km / 6 hrs

Meals: Continental breakfast, walkers lunch and a chef-prepared a la carte dinner

Accommodation: Ikara Safari Camp in luxury safari tents with ensuites

DAY 4
TANDERRA SADDLE OUTSIDE AND INSIDE TRACK

The walk from your accommodation to the Saddle or to the peak is the most demanding of the week, as it involves traversing up the edge of the pound wall on a steep trail that winds back on itself again and again. But the pay off is worth it. The views back over the ABC and Heysen Range and over the pound (a huge natural amphitheatre) are unheralded. It’s worth stopping at the top to soak up the ambience. You can trace where you have walked on the days before from the trailhead at the top end of the snake-like ranges all the way back to where you stand.

Walks: Mostly moderate / 18km / 6.5 – 8hrs

Meals: Cooked breakfast, walkers lunch and a chef-prepared a la carte dinner

Accommodation: Ikara Safari Camp in luxury safari tents with ensuites

DAY 5
WILPENA POUND VIA BRIDAL GAP TO BLACK GAP ON HEYSEN TRACK

You’ll get to appreciate the scale of Wilpena Pound and learn more about this place today. We walk across the valley floor totally surrounded by the impressive Wilpena Pound walls.  Before the Europeans settled, the indigenous people hunted here as the water was consistently available. The Aboriginal word Wilpena means ‘cupped hand’. This place holds tremendous cultural significance to the local people from a spiritual point of view. This is an ancient place offering a sanctuary and level of tranquillity that it is hard to find. At Bridal Gap there are more astounding views to be had over the Pound and the Chase Range.

Walking: Easy to Moderate / 11km / 4–5 hrs

Meals: Cooked breakfast, Walkers Lunch and a chef-prepared a la carte dinner at the Woolshed

Accommodation: Rawnsley Park Station in rooms with ensuites

DAY 6
RAWSLEY STATION TO RAWSLEY BLUFF

The Rawnsley Bluff walk is a fantastic way to bid farewell to the Flinders Ranges. It has magnificent views looking back inside Wilpena Pound and over to St Mary Peak. But its at the last lookout at the Bluff that will have you mesmerized. From Rawnsley Bluff you get to look out over the expansive plains below and out over the Chase and Elder Ranges to the south.  If you want a preview take a look at our website video as it features this view at the 35 and 45 second mark.

Walking: Moderate with one challenging steep section / 11.5km / 4–5 hrs

There is also a focus on regional food and wine. Good wholesome food with kangaroo and emu occasionally on the menu. The region is remote, but world-class South Australian wine and a cold lager are within easy reach. We suggest that if you like wine then bring some for the first night at Angorichina ( or for the whole trip if you want your own pre-dinner drinks).

Alcohol or drinks with meals are not included (except tea/coffee and juice with breakfast).
