Trip Details

To take advantage of the full 6 days, it is suggested that you are packed and ready to go on the day of departure, or if you can stay at the Quorn Caravan Park on the day prior to departure, even better. Quorn is approximately 4hr (336km) drive from Adelaide. Please let us know what your expected arrival time will be so we can book your camp site (powered or unpowered) if required (Additional Cost).

Day 1

We depart Quorn at 10.00am (or a time that suits you if you’re coming from Adelaide this morning) and head to Arkaroola, where we will set up camp in the caravan park and get settled in for the next 2 days so we can explore this magnificent part of the Flinders Ranges.

Day 2

We leave camp and head west to explore Old Bolla Bollana Smelters, through the remnants of the Wheal Turner Mine and then out to the ruins of the Yudnamutana Mine. We return in the afternoon via Tourmaline Hill and back to camp.

Day 3

On our third day we depart camp and pass through the Jasper Twins and onto to visit Stubbs Waterhole. From there we follow part of the Mt Jacobs track as we return to camp around lunch time. Then we pack up our gear and head to Beltana Station via the Copley Bakery and Leigh Creek. We pass through Puttapa Gap as we make our way to our new campsite for the next few days.

Day 4

We leave camp at 9.00am and explore the western side of the property as we head to the edge of Lake Torrens. Lake Torrens is the second largest salt lake in the world (Lake Eyre is the largest) but Lake Torrens has the longest shoreline of any salt lake in the world. The 4WD tracks range from basic bush tracks to sandy tracks that will occasionally challenge you and your vehicle, but don’t worry, we’ll will be there to help you along the way. We’ll have lunch at the lakes edge and then head back to camp for a relaxing evening by the fire. This is a 110km track and it will take all day to complete.

Day 5

We depart camp for a full day of fun and 4WDriving on the Mt. Deception track as we explore the north western side of the property. There are many scenic views along the way so have your camera handy as we make our way along the tracks, visiting stone tanks and troughs, outstations and various ruins.

    Hi Wayne,

    This tour is an ‘On Demand’ tour and we do have some time available to deliver it in May and June. Please give us an idea of what dates you are considering and I’ll do what I can to calendar you in, as I know when we last discussed a Tag Along you were looking at April but April ‘s all filled up now.

    Kind regards,

    Norman & Coralie Bee
