Day 1 | Depart Adelaide / Mambray Creek

We depart Adelaide at 8am and hit the highway heading north. Our first stop is at Port Wakefield for morning tea with a choice of bakeries on offer. You have the opportunity to walk it off though with a stunning hike at Mambray Creek. Our walk takes around 2 hours on various easy and moderate trails, and includes an invitation to connect with wise old river red gums and ancient creek beds. We enjoy a picnic lunch here too.

We then head to our comfortable accommodation for a 2 night stay.  Optional yoga session this afternoon.

Day 2 | Dutchman's Stern

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 with grazing platters while watching a magnificent Flinders sunset. Optional yoga session and therapeutic foot bath this afternoon.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Trail Snacks, 2 Course Dinner
Walking Distance: 11km

Day 3 | Alligator Gorge / Drive to Adelaide

Although we travel back to Adelaide today, we make the most of the views near Wilmington and follow the inland roads.

We start our day with a Flinders Ranges sunrise before heading to the stunning Alligator Gorge and our final hike. The terrain here is rugged and a magical experience.

A lunch stop at an iconic bakery famous for gourmet pies and quandong tarts is a tradition (Bakery number 3!) After a fulfilling lunch, we should arrive in Adelaide at approximately 5pm. Please do not book flights for this evening.
