Throughout the trip you stay at top notch accommodation and meet the friendly locals.
Day 1
Adelaide to Clare
Your South Australia Outback Adventure begins in Adelaide when you pick up your rental vehicle and begin the drive to Clare. The Clare Valley is internationally known for its cool climate wines and some of the larger wineries have a base here. There are boutique wineries and lots of opportunities to sample the vintages.

Day 2
Clare to Wilpena Pound
This morning you leave Clare and drive to Wilpena Pound which sits amid the vibrant colours of the 800 million-year-old quartzite and limestone outcrop that is the Flinders Ranges. Wilpena Pound, surrounded by jagged hills, is a natural amphitheatre, 15 miles long and five miles wide, and has been shaped by the weathering and uplifting of land over time. This area has strong significance to the indigenous Adnyamthanha people

Day 4
Wilpena Pound to Port Augusta
Today you leave Wilpena Pound and drive to Port Augusta, one of South Australia's major towns. Port Augusta acts as a gateway to the Outback and is a crossroads for travellers in the region. The town itself has a number of historic buildings, including the Institute of Mechanics and several places of interest including the Homestead Park Pioneer Museum. A heritage walk here gives a good insight into the town's history and importance

Day 5
Port Augusta to Coober Pedy
After breakfast leave Port Augusta and drive to Coober Pedy, South Australia's biggest and oldest opal-mining town, dating from 1915. Drawn to the Stuart Ranges by the lure of wealth, many opal miners escaped the fierce heat of summer living underground here in elaborate dugouts. Coober Pedy has more than 30 different opal producing fields and the dusty lunar-like landscape is regarded as the last frontier of the wild outback of Australia.

Day 6
Coober Pedy

A guide will meet you at the Desert Cave and accompany you throughout this fascinating trip. The Painted Desert is an area of spectacular and colourful hills created more than 80 million years ago. Travel to Arckaringa Hills, see some of the cattle stations along the way, as well as the Moon Plains and many more magical sites
