Travel guide Flinders Ranges & Outback

By Rachel Power

Located at the northern end of the Flinders Ranges in South Australia, Arkaroola is a rare gem. A privately owned property, Arkaroola has been set up as a wilderness sanctuary and is a wonderful place to spend some time exploring in your 4WD.   We ended up spending four nights (not the two we originally planned) in Arkaroola, and this seems to be common as there is so much to see and do. Even four days is not long enough to explore everything, however we gave it a good try!     Location                       Arkaroola is 700kms north of Adelaide. The road in is unsealed with dry creek crossings and can be by 2WD, as can many of the roads around Arkaroola. If you are unsure how your vehicle will go on the roads, then... Read more

Flinders Ranges and South Australian outback
By Kylie Jane Degeling

At one point in time, Australia’s vast deserts were teeming with marine life and completely underwater. The Eromanga Sea that once covered Australia’s outback disappeared between 100-120 million years ago, leaving behind fossils and opals, as well as terrain that is both rugged and beautiful. It’s hard to imagine the deep flowing water of this sea however, as today South Australia is the driest state in the driest continent on earth. But this is a good thing – it’s unlikely to rain on your holiday, and the flora, fauna, and desert features that are the result of this change from sea to desert are utterly fascinating. Coober Pedy is at the northern end of the South Australian outback, and here you will find an underground town with some buildings bobbing abo... Read more
