Explore Flinders Ranges – Part A

This ride was planned as separate legs to Yunta and then south from Arkaroola through the Flinders Ranges in 2 parts. The actual ride through Flinders was cut short but I have left the I have left the 2 part originals here: and in Part B.

Yunta to Adelaide

via Arkaroola

The second leg sees us travel over 300kms west to Yunta and go north to Arkaroola before returning to Adelaide.

The trip around the Flinders Ranges will pass through Balcanoona, Arkaroola, Yandinna, Nepabunna, Natawarrina, Angorochina, Blinman, Wilpena Pound and then Hawker and Quorn on the way back into Adelaide.

We will need permits to go through Nepabunna Aboriginal and permission to go through Narrina Station.

This is a slightly shortened version and in reverse of the route done by these guys in 2010.

There’s a nice track approximately 300km up the Murraylands Road from Adelaide for anyone wanting to meet us at Sturt Vale and Eastern Road. We will be arriving about 1:45pm on 8 October. But we will leave a sign at the intersection when we leave so anyone arriving to find the sign will know we have left for Yunta which is an overnight so there’s no way you will miss us.
