With much to experience from the Adelaide Zoo; home to 2,500 animals including the only giant pandas in the southern hemisphere.

    Adelaide to Port Augusta

    Your South Australian outback journey begins starting with a leisurely drive which takes you along amazing Spencer Gulf. Once in Port Augusta, it’s a must to visit the “Time Tunnel” at Wadlata Outback Centre which isn’t any old tourist centre.

It’s some of the most stunning landscapes you will see.

    Rawnsley Park Station offers a great range of exploration trips including a 4WD to the best view to watch the sunset over the Flinders.
