Flinders Ranges Camp
Our famous Flinders Ranges Camp, home to fantastic scenery and some of the most beautiful mountain ranges in South Australia. Our Flinders Ranges Campsite is only 3.5 hours drive from Adelaide, South Australia and allows students or groups to experience the gorgeous Australian outback.
The Flinders Ranges Camp is our most iconic Australian outback short camping tour, and includes many activities and sightseeing spots for students and groups to really enjoy! Like all of our camp and tours, we focus on activities that facilitate friendships within the group, as well allow students to take some great selfies with wildlife and spectacular scenery!
This 3 day camp has a special focus on Aboriginal culture, and we hold a very special Aboriginal campfire night & cultural performance. During this night, we invite local Aboriginal community members to share their culture around the campfire. This includes a dance performance at our bush camping site, around the campfire just as the stars come out for night. Students also learn to how to cook Kangaroo Tail on the campfire using traditional aboriginal methods. This experience provides a fantastic opportunity to ask questions and learn about Indigenous culture for in a friendly bush setting.

We kick off our journey with a beautiful wine tour and wine tasting at the famous Barossa Valley wine region. We have an opportunity to learn about the wine as we taste it, followed up by a wine-production tour. Our next stop on our way to our campsite is an inland PINK lake. A truly stunning place which has great opportunities for photos!
After a drive through the arid Australian outback, we arrive at our campsite on the edge of the southern Flinders Ranges mountains. The view is spectacular, and many emu’s call this place home! We have an official meet and greet, followed by our chef-prepared dinner and social drinks.
A lazy breakfast awaits us in the morning, before we head off to the Australian Arid Lands botanical garden! Here we take a guided tour of Australian Indigenous Aboriginal bush-tucker foods, with an opportunity to taste the plants we learn about after the tour!
Back at camp we have lunch, and go for a hike next to our campsite, exploring the awesome views right on our doorstep! As afternoon approaches, we have an epic night ahead of us, as we welcome our Indigenous Australian guests to our campsite, who talk to us about their culture, cook some kangaroo tail on the campfire for us to try, and even sneak in a cultural performance if we ask nicely! It’s an amazing fire-side night.
After another big breakfast, it’s time to do our final campsite packup. But don’t worry, we’re not finished yet. Today we visit Alligator Gorge in the Mount Remarkable National Park. The views here are nothing like you would see near Adelaide. We explore 2 major lookouts and have the option of going for an extended walk. We have lunch at the National Park among the kookaburras and natural cliff faces.
We journey back to Adelaide across the outback, and arrive home near sunset.
