Our first stop takes us to Laura, home of the heritage icon Golden North Ice Cream. We then take a short drive to Quorn and enjoy some free time to explore the historic town before lunch. We continue our journey to Hawker. Visit the Wilpena Panorama Gallery and view Wilpena superbly portrayed by local artist Jeff Morgan. The iconic Prairie Hotel is our final destination for tonight. Check out the fossil collection, talk to the friendly locals and have a look at their innovative menu with a "Flinders Feral Food" twist.

Day 2 After a hearty breakfast it is time to explore the old copper mining town of Blinman and visit a historical working shearing shed at Angorichina Station. We also stop at the Great Wall of China before making our way to the most ancient of lands Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary. Arkaroola features rugged mountains, towering granite peaks, magnificent gorges and mysterious waterholes. We follow the Vulkathanha Gammon Ranges Road deep into the Northern Flinders Ranges and you can take a first glimpse at the ancient ridges and the remoteness of this area. Upon our arrival at Arkaroola Resort we settle into our rooms for the next four nights. This tour offers the best opportunity to really explore the uniqueness of Arkaroola.

Day 4 Arkaroola is such a special and awe inspiring area that most travellers wished they had one extra day out here. On our Arkaroola Explorer Tour we give you exactly what you are looking for. Spend the day at your own leisure. Venture on a bird watching or photographic journey. Look out for some of the 160 recorded bird species to the area or the various flora and fauna abundant at this time of the year. Or how about you bring your painting brush and drawing tools. Plenty of inspiration, photographic opportunities and great encounters with wildlife out here. We will all meet back with the group as the sun sets over the ranges.

Day 5 This morning we join a guided 4WD Tour passing by Echo Camp and Barraranna watherholes as the track follows the winding gorge carved by the Arkaroola Creek. It is the perfect contrast to the famous Ridgetop Tour. We have a late lunch at the resort and why not take an optional scenic flight over Lake Frome or Arkaroola Sanctuary this afternoon. The Arkaroola scenic flight will give you a bird's eye view of the ancient southern Arkaroola to the granite and quartzite outcrops of Mount Gee, the Mawson Plateau and the Freeling Heights. This flight is 30 minutes. Or fly for 75 minutes taking you over Arkaroola and east across the flood plains to the whitest salt lake in Australia, Lake Frome. You will see old sand dunes trapped forever in the Lake's crusty grasp, a relic of the time when central Australia was once an inland sea.
