We have just completed a trip through NSW, Victoria and SA with the prime aim of a taking a good look at the Flinders Ranges which part of the arid heart of SA bordering on the desert country.

Second time I have been there this year but first time I have taken my wife and daughter. I wanted them to see this spectacular country.

Everyone takes this pic of the Razorback Range from this lookout.


Near Wilpenna




This is Rawnsley's Bluff near Wilpena.



The rig -


Many emu families to be seen.

These pics all around Arkaroola.






Covered 5525 kms - averaged 14 lts/100 km towing the Cub camper using 790 litres of diesel for an average cost of $1.30 per litre. Most expensive was $1.52 at Wilpenna Pound and Leigh Creek cheapest was $1.22 at Renmark.

I got rid of the dust bunnies later in the trip and forgot to clone out when processing.

G'day Terry
Looks like you had a great trip.. Thanks for sharing the photos.. How long was this trip? Just interested in how long the trip took, as to the kilometres traveled. Our next one is planned, think it's 8000km in 4 weeks.. First two days, and last two days will be big ones.. Meeting up in Winton.. And finish in Birdsville .. From Queanbeyan... No camp trailer this trip, just tenting it... Can't wait.. I like to see what people travel over a certain time frame.. I know it's about the journey, but gives us days off when we get there.. Cheers and happy travels. Owen n Sue

This was really a relaxed trip when we only travelled 5500 kms over 3 weeks. Spent 1 night at Shepparton, 2 days on a friend's farm in western Victoria, 3 in Adelaide visiting my son and then 7 nights in the Flinders - 5 in Port Augusts, 2 in Renmark and 2 in Hay before getting home after 23 on the road and 22 nights away.

I normally plan on doing no more than 500 kms drive per day - although transport legs will be longer. Some legs like Wilpenna to Arkaroola is a short but difficult 250 kms about.

Good to see you still getting out there.

Some friends of ours just had 2 weeks on the road driving from Dajarra through to Adelaide and then back. When queried about the Flinders Rnge ( one of my favourite spots ) he said "Oh, yes we spent a day there! "
I think he likes driving more than the actual scenery. Cheers Toni
