Half Day The Oaks Private Property Tour - DT01

'The Oaks' tour offers many different aspects of this area that the average tourist does not get to see. Visiting this private property is very personal and sentimental to Derek, being the property where he spent much of his childhood. The tour will include Jarvis Hill Lookout and the Yappala Range with its superb views of Lake Torrens to the west, and Wilpena and surrounding mountains to the east. The valley which you will enter is similar to the interior of Wilpena Pound and the sediments that we drive over are the same sediments that form the rim of Wilpena, and the deserted railway town of Old Hookina, where the remains of flood damage from the 1955 and 2007 floods, which most people marvel at.

Operates: Tour departs daily at 8am and 1pm ex Hawker.
