At A Glance Departures

The Flinders Ranges Outback 5-day walking tour is a unique and authentic Australian bush experience. There is nowhere quite like the Flinders Ranges for combining spectacular wildlife-spotting, bush-walking and immersing in nature. Set against the Elder Range and Wilpena Pound in South Australia, this walking safari is an unmissable Aussie adventure. 

The Flinders Ranges stands as an ancient natural monument crafted by millions of years of geological activity. This incredible outback region offers some of Australia's most spectacular scenery. The Flinders Ranges is the largest mountain range in South Australia and lies about 200km north of Adelaide. On this 5-day walking tour, you’ll visit many renowned landmarks including Wilpena Pound, the Heysen Trail, Brachina Gorge and Alligator Gorge. From the air, Wilpena Pound looks like a crater, an enormous bowl almost 100 kilometres (62 miles) wide that towers above the surrounding plains. A geological marvel that has remained in place since long before the dawn of mankind. During this tour you will also trek a section of the Heysen Trail which stretches over 1,200km in its entirety between Parachilna Gorge and Cape Jervis on the Fleurieu Peninsula. Experience the Flinders Ranges wildlife and rugged landscapes where native animals and hundreds of bird species are in abundance.

At the end of each day’s hiking, you will return to your luxury eco accommodation at Rawnsley Park Station. Overlooking the southern side of Wilpena Pound, Rawnsley Park Station provides the perfect base for exploring this magnificent region.


This 5-day fully accommodated walking tour includes all transport, meals and two field guides. You will be guided in small groups of 10 walkers or fewer. The hikes traverse varied terrain and are therefore challenging in sections.

This incredibly rewarding experience will take you deep into the heart of outback Australia. You’ll marvel at iconic scenery, native wildlife and indigenous culture as you traverse this ancient landscape.

    - The departure point is Adelaide SA

  • Weather and Climate

    The climate in the Southern Outback is generally dry and sunny year round.

    AUTUMN (Mar - May)
    This season provides warm days with cooler evenings. Day temperatures will average between 15 – 20°C with the later part of the season being cooler. The evening temperatures will be much cooler and warm clothing will be required. As the days cool, wildlife becomes more active during the middle parts of the day.

    WINTER (Jun - Aug)
    Walking in winter is particularly beautiful in the Flinders with cold nights and days that are warm with some spectacular sunrises and sunsets. This season provides ideal walking weather with daily temperatures of around 15°C and occasionally as high as 25°C. The evenings and early mornings will be very cold and winter clothing will be required. During July/August temperatures can drop to below 0°C at night. A roaring camp fire and warming glasses of red wine will be enjoyed each night and after winter rains, with surface water in the creeks, wildlife will be far-reaching with lots of food available and very active throughout the day. Emus will generally begin laying from August onwards.

    SPRING (Sep - Nov)
    Spring in the Flinders Ranges is undeniably spectacular! It is a great time to spot emu chicks as they begin hatching and the outback brown and orange colours are bright with red, yellow, white and purple with native plants and wildflowers. Migratory birds will generally begin to appear and wedgetail eagle chicks will hatch between August and September, fledging by November. The abundance of and timing of the wildflowers depends entirely on rainfall throughout the year. Day temperatures can average between 20°C-25°C with the later part of the season getting warmer. The evening temperatures will be cooler in the early part of the season so a warm layer of clothing will be required.

    SUMMER (Dec - Feb)
    The walking tour is not operate during the hot, summer months, although you can still book a stay at Arkaba Homestead which is open year round and enjoy shorter walks as part of guided activities that are included in the tariff.

In the event that we are forced to change your arrangements, substitute arrangements of a similar standard will be provided.

    Cancellation by The Tour Operator
    The walks take place in very special wilderness settings. The tour operator is at the mercy of nature in all her beauty and all her fury. The tour operator will under no circumstance knowingly place at risk the health and well-being of our guests and guides. In the case of natural threats, acts of God and the like (e.g. bushfires, impassable snow, etc) the tour operator may need to cancel a walk with very little notice. In some cases, this can occur after the walk has commenced. The tour operator reserves the right to cancel any walk up to 60 days prior to departure if a minimum of 4 walkers are unable to meet for a tour. If the tour operator needs to cancel for any reason, the cost of the walk or any other costs associated with travel to the designated pick up point, overnight accommodation, meals, etc will not be covered by the OCT4 PTY LTD and therefore we strongly recommend travel insurance be taken out prior to travel.

    Force Majeure
    'Force Majeure' means (without restriction) any event which OCT4 Pty Ltd or its third party providers could not, even with due care, foresee or avoid. Force Majeure covers events such as, but not limited to, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar events beyond our control. In the case of Force Majeure OCT4 Pty Ltd will not accept liability, and reserves the right to change and cancel trips.

    Evacuations
    In rare circumstances, due to injury or unforeseen illness, the tour operator may need to evacuate you from a remote part of the walk. Helicopter evacuations are expensive and in most cases will be at a cost to the customer.

    For Australian residents, under the Australian Government Medicare Act, it is prohibited for any domestic travel insurance product to provide any financial reimbursement with regard to ambulance or air ambulance services. We therefore strongly advise our customers to take specific ambulance cover through their health insurance provider. Evacuation cost will not be covered by the OCT4 PTY LTD and therefore it is also strongly recommended that our customers take out travel insurance to cover (amongst other things) the costs associated with evacuation.

    Travel Insurance
    In view of the heavy cancellation penalties applied to cancelled reservations in certain circumstances, we strongly recommends suitable travel insurance be purchased at the time the holding deposit is paid. We recommend insurance cover that covers any loss which may be suffered due to cancellation. We also strongly recommend comprehensive travel insurance against loss of baggage and medical expenses.

    reviews The Flinders Rangers is an amazing place. We paid the extra and included the Outback 4WD tour and the scenic flight over Wilpena Pound. It was worth every cent. The scenery from above was amazing, you don't realise how big the Flinders Ranges are. We saw a lot of wildlife and took many photographs. The sunset as the back drop enabled us take some amazing photographs. These are memories that will last a lifetime. The accommodation was great - we loved the luxury eco accommodation - very comfortable yet suitable for the surroundings. The guides were lovely - very friendly and accommodating to our needs.
