Flinders Ranges & Outback
Heading north from Adelaide, you’ll leave behind green farming land of the South Australian coast and into the red terrain of Australia’s Outback. But travellers expecting little more than red dirt as far as the eye can see will be surprised by the diversity of scenery here and the abundance of plants and animals that call this harsh environment home. As you hit the Flinders Ranges, you’ll be in awe of the rugged mountainous landscape, lush hidden gorges and dramatic craters that are ready to explore. Whether you’re discovering the southern edge around Mount Remarkable or heading deep into the desert around Coober Pedy, you’ll be left amazed by the beauty of this incredibly unique landscape.
