Do you like traveling to Australian Outbacks? Check this out! Hard to believe but spring is just around the corner as well as your  September/October break. Only one month of winter to go !!!

As a part of celebrating the academic year 2015, Words on Wheels are planning a trip to Flinders Ranges and Outback!!

With the kind generosity of Study Adelaide, Words on Wheels is planning a full 3 day tour with everything included for only $310 per person. The accommodation at Rawnsley Park is based in the heart of the “Flinders” and we have exclusive use of rooms, camp kitchen and male and female toilets and showers. There will also be nightly bon-fires under the stars.

As well as plenty of stops for walks and photography, part of the excitement  of the tour is  traveling off road through some of the most spectacular gorges in the Flinders Ranges.The plan for the Outback trip is as follows;

“Day 1 Departing Adelaide we head north to the “Southern Flinders Ranges”. After a delicious picnic lunch, there will be a hike through Mount Remarkable National park to view where the ocean meets the outback. Later in the day we travel to the heart of the Flinders Ranges to begin many unique experiences in this special land. Late afternoon we arrive at Rawnsley Park to stay overnight & experience the abundance of native wildlife and flora. A nocturnal bush walk will depart after a BBQ dinner by the fire.
Day 2 Wake up to the call of the Kookaburras. Enjoy your breakfast and the morning view of South Australia’s iconic Wilpena Pound (also known to the local Aboriginal people as ‘Ikara’). The rest of the day is dedicated to explore and photograph the diverse flora and fauna, in one of the unique geographical wonders of the world. We also visit the famous Bunyeroo and Brachina Gorges (also known as ‘the corridors through time’) to view ancient rock formations & spot the elusive Yellow Footed Rock Wallabies. Wildlife includes Kangaroos, Emus and large Wedge Tailed Eagles, which are prolific in this rugged area. Later in the day we turn back to Rawnsley Park settle down for the night under millions of stars and enjoy dinner around the campfire.

Day 3 We start the day with a visit to a sacred aboriginal site, where you will be able to see ancient rock art paintings and roaming kangaroos. As we then turn southward toward Adelaide, you will have the opportunity to experience the Clare Valley, one of the best wine regions in South Australia. Here you can visit shops, buy and taste the fine wines. Late afternoon sit back & relax for the ride back into Adelaide. Approximate time of arrival is 6pm.
