OVERVIEW

The 1200km Heysen Trail in the Flinders Ranges is rated as one of the world's premier long-distance trails. From the north, it carves a path through and sometimes up and over the ranges. It ends in Cape Jervis in the very south of South Australia, having made its way through Claire and the Maclaren vale.

The Northern Flinders has some of the most stunning outback scenery in Australia, rivalling anything in the interior. 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. Explore this stunning region in the only way you can – by foot.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • The incredible serenity of the furthest end of the Northern Flinders
  • Panoramic views of mountains and the surrounding plains
  • Witness the Brachina Formation,  one of the oldest rock formations on the planet
  • Pass through beautiful forests, gullies and gorges
  • Reach the peak of Tanderra Saddle with unheralded views

ACCOMMODATION & DINING DESKTOP

On this Flinders Ranges tour on foot, you’ll stay in the Heysen Cabins in Angorichina, at award-winning Rawnsley Park Station and in the luxury glamping tents at Ikara Wilpena. 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 single supplement is for your own private ensuite on all 6 nights. If you’re happy to share a bathroom (not your room) for 4 nights on the trip then the single supplement can be reduced. There is an upgrade available at Rawnsley to the Eco Villas. Please see the 6-day offer for more information on the Eco Villas or ask the office for more details.

The two-course a la carte dinners 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.

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).

GENERAL INFO

This holiday starts and finishes in Rawnsley Park.

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 to 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 way to hot with temperatures in the high 40’s.

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

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.
