1
Adelaide - Flinders Ranges National Park
Welcome to Adelaide. With its many festivals and great live music scene, South Australia’s state capital prides itself on being Australia’s arts hub – but we love it just as much for its proximity to some of the world’s greatest wines. If you arrive in Adelaide a few days prior to your Overland adventure starting, make sure to try some choice drops from the Barossa or a McLaren Vale shiraz. This trip begins leaves the city pretty early on Day 1 (6am), stopping for a quick coffee in Clare (another great wine region), and then continuing on to the Flinders Ranges National Park. There’ll be time for a stretch of the legs at Alligator Gorge, which offers some of the most spectacular and colourful rock formations in the national park, before lunch in Quorn – home of the Pichi Richi Railway. You’ll also enjoy a guided walk to the top of the ranges at Dutchman’s Stern. Tonight’s campsite is in Warren Gorge. As the sun is setting and while your evening meal is being prepared, you will have the opportunity to explore the beautiful Warren gorge here in the Flinders Ranges. It’s here that you’ll get the opportunity to spot a Yellow-Footed rock wallaby. Almost driven to extinction by introduced ‘Feral’ animals, at Warren Gorge they are beginning to ‘bounce back!’ Notes: Driving time is approximately 2.5 hours, walking time approximately 2 hours.

Flinders Ranges National Park – Coodlie Park (Eyre Peninsula)
Prepare to encounter one of Australia’s best-kept secrets today: the Eyre Peninsula. Made up of incredible red-rock landscapes, a huge diversity of wildlife and very few travellers, this part of the world really feels like your own private piece of paradise. After heading through Port Augusta, stop for lunch in the tiny town of Kimba – the midway point between coasts east and west and home of the Big Galah – a seven metre tall statue of the native bird. Continue the drive across the peninsula, arriving at the coast and Coodlie Park Farm Retreat in the afternoon. Notes: Driving time is approximately 4 hours, walking time approximately 1.5 hours. Please also note that tomorrow you will be swapping buses and joining the other group coming from Perth.
3
Coodlie Park - Baird Bay
This morning, join up with the group that are coming from Perth and heading to Adelaide, and head out to swim with the ever-cheeky and playful sea lions and dolphins. You’ll travel up the shore to Baird Bay, a pristine coastline and sanctuary for a multitude of land and sea animals. This activity is run by Baird Bay Eco Tours and is optional, but if you choose to participate it’s something that will stay with you for the rest of your life. Wild but not shy, these new flippered friends will often bound into the water, keen to show you their tricks – they duck, dive, roll, race, somersault and swirl in their efforts to show off on this 3-4 hour tour. Stop for lunch at the picnic stop at Bairds, then continue on to Murphy’s Haystacks, incredible, ancient pink granite boulders sculptured into wondrous and weird shapes over millions of years. Then it’s on to Talia Caves, great granite tubes carved by the sea, and the Lake Newland sand dunes, where you’ll have the chance to go sandboarding. After a full day you’ll return to Coodlie Park Bush camp for the night. Notes: Driving time is approximately 4 hours, swimming time approximately 4 hours.
4
Coodlie Park and Mikkira station
Motor back down along the coast on the Great Ocean Tourist Drive towards Elliston, checking out the amazing cliffs of Locks Well en route. Continue down to the very bottom right of the peninsula and Port Lincoln, where you’ll stop lunch. Stretch your legs with a wander around the town – there’ll be around an hour here for you to stroll along the foreshore, survey the scenery from Winters Hill Lookout, or kick back with a cool drink in a cafe. Tonight you’ll camp at Mikkira Station, a private campground surrounded by eucalyptus trees. The property of this historic homestead is littered with Giant Yakkas and Manna Gum trees. The gums leaves are the favourite food of koalas, so crane your neck when walking around the property and see if you can spot these furry little guys up in the branches. Notes: Driving time is approximately 2 hours, walking time approximately 2 hours.
5
Port Lincoln - Port Neill
You will visit Whalers Way Conservation Park for spectacular rugged coastline, Lincoln National Park walk Stamford Hill (where you’ll hopefully spot some kangaroos and emus), Fishers Bay and swimming in the pristine waters of the Southern Ocean. We visit Wadlata Cultural Centre and have an interpretive walk through the life of the new frontier pioneers of South Australia. Notes: Driving time is approximately 4 hours, walking time approximately 2 hours.
6
Port Neill - Adelaide
Leave Port Lincoln and travel up the eastern side of the peninsula. Head through Whyalla and into Port Augusta, where you’ll stop by the Wadlata Cultural Centre. “Wadlata” is an Aboriginal word that means to “teach or communicate”, and this fun and informative centre will give you lots of answers to all the questions you’re sure to have about the formation of the Nullarbor, Flinders Rangers, and the formation of Australia as a continent. It’s also got lots of info on life out here, from an interpretative walk through the life of the new frontier pioneers, to displays on the Flying Doctors, the School of the Air, the Birdsville Track mailman Tom Kruse, and stories of the Dreamtime. After lunch you’ll hit the road again and return to South Australia’s capital city – Adelaide. Notes: Driving time is approximately 3.5 hours.
