Tour ID: 10022045
A groovy adventurous trip to the Outback, passing through Flinders Rangers, William Creek and Coober Pedy. After visiting the opal capital of the world, you will return to Adelaide.
We escape the city and head north through one of South Australia's premium wine regions, the Clare Valley and then onto the beautiful Flinders Ranges. Passing through small country towns like Quorn and Hawker and discovering the ancient Aboriginal artwork at the Yourambulla Caves on the way. A viewpoint for amazing photos and keep an eye out for the abundance of wildlife that inhabits this expanse. Tonight we stay at Angorichina, in the magnificent Parachilna Gorge.
Destination outback! We visit Tacl Alf - this outback artist is a true character! From Marree, rich in its history of camel trains, along the Oodnadatta Track, we follow the old Ghan Railway and its long abandoned railway settlements. We stop at Coward Springs, for a relaxing all-natural spa. This is remote territory, with red, stony, plains stretching to the horizon. At William Creek we stay at "Trillion Star Hotel" and camp out under the desert's sky in our comfy swags.
Taking an isolated track through the world's largest cattle station (Anna Creek), we head for the opal capital of the world, Coober Pedy in time for lunch. We take an underground tour to learn about the history of Coober Pedy and its opal. Free time is available to explore the charms of the opal town or "noodle" for opals. We sleep overnight in an underground bunkhouse.
With an early departure, we cruise down the Stuart Highway with pit-stops en route. Relax and take in the arid outback scenery before we return to the little smoke of Adelaide around 6pm.
