The vibrant colours that changed with the light, the natural amphitheatre of Wilpena Pound, the rocky mountain ranges, craggy outcrops and ancient cliffs are all part of this majestic Flinders Ranges National Park, or ‘Ikara’ as it is known to the Adnyamathanha people, the traditional owners of this land – ‘Ikara’ meaning ‘Meeting Place’.
We travelled through some unique outback towns of South Australia and the Northern Territory as we followed the long straight Stuart Highway. Come travel with us to Coober Pedy and beyond.
Let’s embark on another unforgettable journey through the jaw-dropping landscape of the Southern Flinders Ranges to historic, sprawling outback towns, Port Augusta and back through Quorn to Hawker.
Come with us and let us take you on a journey through the small villages of the Southern Flinders Ranges of South Australia to the beautiful touristy towns of Burra and Peterborough… and other towns that time seems to have forgotten – then be amazed at the awe-inspiring scenery of the magnificent ranges as we near Hawker to explore Wilpena Pound and the Central Flinders Ranges.
We will remember them… They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
Our ‘Mighty Murray Drive’ is over and we have had one amazing time.
There is certainly something special about ‘The Mighty Murray’- the beautiful ‘River Red Gums’, the friendly people, the gorgeous river towns dotted along the way, and so many amazing free river camps.
I really hope you have enjoyed our journey as much as we did…we can’t recommend this drive enough!
