We returned on Monday from 4 days in the Flinders. Weather fantastic & it is still as beautiful as ever.

Did the drive at Mt Arden on Saturday, can recommend it if you are up that way.

Scenery was great, some challenges, a few good camping spots. These are sign posted, so I assume that they do allow you to camp here. If I were doing it again, would camp near the start then do the drive next day, then camp near the end to finish the trip off. It is in Warren Gorge.

See my home page (EO) for some pics.

Hi Russ,

Yeah, Mt Arden is one of the many great drives in the Flinders. We've usually done it from Argadells in the past - usually camp on the property for a long weekend, and do a lot of the other station tracks, which also have some impressive lookouts. You can also drive north from Mt Arden along the Heysen Trail. Great spot.

Cheers
phil

Phil,

Would be interested in getting more info from you re other tracks and access from Argadells. I take it that the two properties are connected?

Was advised that whilst Argadells is not necessarilly a 4x4 track, the scenery is apparently worth the trip.

Any contact details/info would be appreciated.

We have done a few tracks and some more than 1x, just a good experience and enjoyable.

Regards
Russ

Russ,

Yes Argadells is immediately north of Warren Gorge, and you were on Argadells after you passed thru the last gate on the way up to the top of Mt Arden. The Argadells turnoff is about 28km north of Quorn.

There are heaps of tracks on Argadells, and brilliant scenery - just got to know where they are. The clubs have been using this property for some time. The new owners have put in some basic facilities, and have encouraged its use for 4wders. Looks like the website is down at present, but do a google on "argadells" and you'll come up with some info. Also theres a track file on this site.

Warraweena and Bendleby are also properties that I'm sure you'll enjoy in the Flinders.

Cheers
phil
