2024 Flinders Ranges, Lake Eyre, Red Centre Tour - South Australia, Northern Territory

Discover yourself in an ancient outback landscape, where sheer presence will awaken all your senses.

An exceptional 15 day heartland journey, with beauty, grandeur and isolation in abundance.

Visit iconic Flinders Ranges, Wilpena Pound, Lake Eyre, Oodnadatta Track, Painted Desert, Coober Pedy, Palm Valley, Hermannsburg, the imposing East and West MacDonnell Ranges.

Follow the songlines and pathways of our First Peoples, Explorers, Afghan Cameleers, Ghan Railway and Overland Telegraph gangs. Immerse yourself in ancient geological wonders, contorted ranges and imposing monoliths dating back 80 to 550 million years.

Appreciate why artist Hans Heysen described the Flinders Ranges as “the bones of the earth laid bare”. Witness newly discovered fossils, evidence of a complex life, from which we all descended. Enjoy the surreal experience of setting foot on salt encrusted Lake Eyre, with horizon and sky merging as one.

Sleep peacefully underground for a night in the Opal capital of Coober Pedy. Experience the extraordinary colour and landforms of the Breakaways and Painted Desert.

Visit the iconic gorges of the Red Centre Ranges, historic Chambers Pillar in the Simpson Desert outliers, cultural communities and petroglyph galleries in remote desert areas south of Alice Springs.
