Four wheel driving, Flinders Ranges, South Australia

Tackle the Skytrek four wheel drive (4WD) adventure at Willow Springs Station and look out over the Northern Flinders Ranges. The track takes you over old mining tracks and station roads. Discover just how vast Australia’s interior is.

An experience of a lifetime

Come for an adventure. Bring your four wheel drive (4WD) and tackle the rugged peaks of the ranges or conquer the corrugated red dunes of the Simpson Desert.

It is an adventurer’s paradise that you can see in style, by yourself or with tour guides. The choice is yours. Strike out on your own, go in a convoy of like-minded travellers or let a host do all the driving. Camp under millions of stars or relax in a resort.

Explore the tracks

Most people will never get out this way. Cross the rippled, red sand. Drive along the Birdsville Track or Oodnadatta Track. Climb the amazing rock formation at Wilpena Pound.

See sky bluer than you'll ever see in the city. Hike to the summit of St Mary Peak. Traverse the Simpson Desert, but remember to get a Desert Parks Pass before you leave, along with a detailed map. The Strzelecki Track will take you from Lyndhurst to Innamincka, where you can visit the graves of explorers Burke and Wills.

See the breathtaking view from Ridgetop Lookout. These are sights for the intrepid - for you.
