Here are some things we love about this unmissable road trip in Australia: 

  • See otherworldly scenery at Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park. This place is special because of its rugged landscapes, ancient Aboriginal history and rocky red gorges. The unique fossils found in the Flinders Ranges caused geologists to revise the geological timeline of the Earth’s history! 
  • Hear stories and songs of the Aboriginal Adnyamathanha people during a moving Welcome to Country. 
  • On the Eyre Peninsula, swim at beautiful beaches, take a surfing lesson at Fisheries Bay and eat oysters fresh from Coffin Bay. 
  • Make meaningful memories by participating in conservation volunteering at Mikkira Station. This regeneration activity involves weeding, propagating or planting manna gum seeds to grow new homes for the koalas.
  • Get close to koalas, echidnas, emus and kangaroos, to name a few. You can also swim with wild sea lions and dolphins. A life-enhancing experience you’ll never forget.
