Highlights: Road tripping the Flinders Ranges

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Itineraries

The Flinders Ranges are an Australian icon. Located in outback South Australia, these ancient land forms form an incredible backdrop for any road trip. They are South Australia’s biggest mountain ranges, and home to a wealth of Aboriginal history, native flora, fauna and much more.

Exploring this region is a true outback experience. So you can enjoy all possible touring routes, we recommend bringing or hiring a 4WD vehicle such as the Apollo 4WD Adventure Camper for your trip. Starting from Adelaide, travel north from Clare Valley; you’ll soon find yourself in the heart of the Flinders Ranges. Here are some of our favourite highlights, the perfect inspiration for your next holiday.
