We depart Adelaide at 8am (bus included) and hit the highway heading north but not without a stop at Pop Kiplings bakery in Port Wakefield for morning tea. We have the opportunity to walk it off though with a stunning walk at Mambray Creek to Sugar Gum Lookout – 2-3 hour mostly flat walking with a short strenuous climb to the lookout. Distance 8km.
Once back to the bus, we will head to Quorn for lunch (bakery number 2!), then on to our historical accommodation nestled in nature at Dutchman’s Stern Conservation for a 2 night stay. Our accommodation is basic and bunkstyle but comfy – you will be required to bring your own linen and sleeping gear (pillow, towel, sheets and blankets or sheet and sleeping bag). Camping (with gear provided) is also available for those who enjoy sleeping under the stars.


Today is our biggest day of walking, we take on the Dutchman’s Stern – a stunning 11km hike again with the most amazing views of the Conservation Park and wider Flinders Ranges all the way to the Spencer Gulf. We will pack lunch and enjoy a picnic along the way, returning to our accommodation for our final evening.

(breakfast, lunch, dinner)

This is our last opportunity to enjoy a walk before we head home. We check out by 9am and after a quick coffee stop in Quorn, we will head to Alligator Gorge approx 1 hour drive south of Quorn for an optional 3.3km circuit hike (or longer the Gorge here is STUNNING). This hike should take us around 2 hours. The terrain here is ROCKY and loose underfoot in the gorge itself – sturdy walking shoes or boots highly recommended.
Once back to the bus, we stretch those walking legs one final time before starting our drive home.
A lunch stop at Stone Hut Bakery is a TRADITION as we make our way back to Adelaide! (Bakery number 3!)
We should be back in Adelaide by approx 5pm.
