Outback South Australia & Eyre Peninsula

This 19-day trip will take you into the heart of the South Australian Outback and then turn around and show you the best of the Eyre Peninsula and its wild coastline. From Adelaide, head toward the centre and visit the opal capital of Australia, see Silo Art and watch stars sparkling above Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park as you hear traditional stories of the Adnyamathanha people. Then, swap the desert landscapes for coastal vistas and explore Port Augusta, discover the diversity of the Gawler Ranges National Park, look out for southern right whales at the Head of Bight, snap pictures of the iconic Lake Macdonnell and dine on freshly shucked oysters in Coffin Bay. This trip takes you on an epic adventure across some of the most iconic South Australian scenery with a local guide to give you the inside scoop on everything along the way.
