This is a world-class walking experience. At the end of each day, you'll have the luxury of staying in the beautifully appointed Eco Villas. At Wilpena, we stay at the excellent Ikara Glamping Resort. Stretch out and relax after your day's walking, have a hot shower, a chef-prepared dinner and a good night's sleep ready for the next day's adventure.

ACCOMMODATION & DINING DESKTOP

On this Flinders Ranges walk, you’ll stay in the award-winning Eco Villas at Rawnsley Park Station, with a fully appointed kitchen, ensuites and a lounge to relax in. At Wilpena Pound, we stay in the luxury glamping tents also with ensuites. All of these private accommodations are located in inspired locations and provide a welcoming and comfortable base to rest, relax and reflect on the day’s walking.

The two-course a la carte dinners and breakfasts at Rawnsley and Ikara are prepared by their in-house chefs.

Each day whilst you’re walking you’ll be provided with a substantial walkers lunch.  More importantly, you’ll get to eat it at a fabulous location on the track. A walkers lunch may include a high protein type salad, a roll or a wrap, a muesli bar, cake or muffin and a piece of fruit. Each day is varied. The 2-course a la carte dinners and cooked breakfasts are all prepared by professional chefs.

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 if you want your own pre-dinner drinks. The restaurants where you eat are licensed.

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

GENERAL INFO

This holiday starts and finishes in Rawnsley Park Station. Information on transport to the Flinders Ranges is available on request.

The Flinders Ranges walks are moderate to challenging with some rough tracks, where you’ll cover shorter distances. Full-day walks average about 19 km and 5-7.5 hours walking each day. The walking is over mostly flat, well-walked paths and bush tracks with some rocky sections. There are two days with steep sections. This is a great opportunity for fit walkers to challenge themselves, however, easier options are available on some days. This is a reasonably long and tough walk and we highly recommend that you incorporate a rest day.

For what to bring please refer to Gear Advice on our FAQ section.

HOW TO GET THERE AND AWAY

This holiday starts and finishes in Rawnsley Park. The best option by far is to use a vehicle. This will allow you the freedom to travel up to the walk at your own pace. There’s a stack of interesting places to visit that require no real deviation from your journey, including wineries. We highly recommend staying in Clare, South Australia’s primo wine destination on the way back. There are also a few walks on the way that can be explored.

More information on transport to the Flinders Ranges is available on request.

WEATHER

The best time to go is April through September as it is the best weather for hiking in the Flinders Ranges. The temperature is still very comfortable to walk in but warm clothes are necessary as the temperature drops at night. This holiday is not available over the hot summer months of December to February as it is way too hot with temperatures in the high 40s.

See the Bureau of Meteorology’s information about average temperatures and rainfall at different times of the year.

INSURANCE

INFORMATION PACK

For nearly 30 years we have taken pride in providing seamlessly organised walking holidays, but we know, even with that in mind, that you’ll have many more questions. You will receive a very detailed information pack and itinerary approximately 6 weeks out from departure outlining all the fine detail and much more.
