Flinders Range – Self Guided

The Flinders Range rugged landscape is 800 million years in the making, with an epic geological story that attracts Geologists from around the globe. Evidence of the Earth’s earliest life forms emerged here. And today we are still uncovering the evidence!

For 7 days, you will be able to immerse yourself in this spectacular environment, enjoying many of the renowned walking trails in the Ranges and some of the lesser-known ones as well. You will walk along sections of the iconic Heysen Trail and climb summits offering the most spectacular views, as well as crossing the natural amphitheater of Wilpena Pound.

On this self-guided walking tour of the Grampians, you can enjoy flexibility and freedom as you go at your own pace. We provide easy-to-follow walking notes, GPS tracking, photos at track junctions, and points of interest en-route. Extra information about the natural environment and history is also included.

Benefits of a Self Guided Walking Tour

  • Carry as little as your water, camera, and lunch.
  • Pre-departure online meeting with one of our experienced guides.
  • Tailor-made guided tour notes, accessible via an app on your phone.
  • Hassle-free private transfers to the trail.

As well as having the walking app on your phone, you will be given the information on the google map platform as well as a good, old-fashioned paper copy of each day’s track notes.

Along the way, you will learn the history of the people who have called this region home. Firstly the Adnyamathanha People (“of the hills”), the Traditional Custodians of this land. And secondly, also the European settlers who tried to tame this harsh environment for grazing, farming and mining.

With an abundance of wildlife and striking landscapes that boast a plethora of flora, the Flinders Ranges is a photographer’s paradise. Your next adventure awaits!
