Today you'll be departing Adelaide, bound for The Flinders Ranges. Fly via Wilpena Pound for aerial views of the Ranges. On arrival at Blinman you will be met by your guide Ross Fargher and transferred to Angorichina Station for morning tea in Australia’s oldest native pine Woolshed that is still in use.
Blinman, nestled in the central Flinders Ranges, is the highest town in South Australia. The town dates back to the discovery of copper in 1859. At its peak the population of Blinman was over 1500. Today this peaceful outback town has a population of just 22 permanent residents.
Transfer to The Prairie Hotel in the tiny settlement of Parachilna. The journey takes you via Parachilna Gorge where you will enjoy spectacular scenic views, including the sight of the gorge’s towering and photogenic river gums.
Parachilna is home to one of Australia's greatest outback gourmet pubs. The Prairie Hotel offers an eco-luxury experience, which will give you an authentic taste of Outback life but without sacrificing the comforts of modern city living.
Depart Parachilna for Brachina Gorge, one of the region’s most spectacular attractions. The gorge is an important refuge for the Yellow Footed Rock Wallaby, as well as many species of birds and reptiles. Brachina Gorge provides a window through 130 million years of the Earth’s history and offers insight into past climates, the formation of the ranges and the evolution of early life forms.
After the tour of the Brachina Gorge, return to The Prairie Hotel and enjoy evening drinks and nibbles on the hotel veranda as you watch the sun set over the western plain.
