Ancient Land Tours

Adventure and Outdoors Tours

Ancient Land Tours offers small groups the chance to get off the beaten track into an area of outstanding natural beauty; our immersive tours provide a genuine remote experience.

We offer half-day and full day tours into the Warna Manda Coastal Parks of the Far West of South Australia. Warna meaning ‘sea’, and Manda meaning ‘ground’ or ‘sand’ in the Wirangu Language.

The iconic coastline between Ceduna and the Head of Bight to the west provides the visitor with unparalleled opportunities to visit remote beaches, get off the beaten track, and witness nature at its best. With ample bird watching opportunities, and the chance to see uncommon and iconic Australian wildlife, the Far West is one of the last places in South Australia to open up to tourism.

There is no other place like the remote Far West of SA for short adventures and to connect with nature. Feel the spirit of this ancient land through personalised nature-based 4WD tours to coastal parks not previously available.

This exclusive tour is for those looking to slow down and experience what it must have been like to live in the remote arid Nullarbor.

The tour includes: a balanced mixture of bush camping, walking, exploring caves and rock art. They start with a welcome to country and watching whales at the Head of Bight and they stay at their bush camp experiencing food prepared by their chef. The next day you’ll learn about the Aboriginal people’s connection to land and caves, view ancient hand prints and rock arrangements, visit special places and hear about Aboriginal stories and beliefs. On the final day you’ll visit an extraordinary place, a Heritage listed site and find out why the Aboriginal people have such a deep connection to country.

Extended tours include sunrise breakfasts on the cliffs; learning about contemporary culture; a walk along an ancient trail; and by prior arrangement scenic flights.

This Warna Manda Coastal Parks tour explores a relatively undisturbed coastal dune system with an associated samphire community and mallee woodland. It provides important habitat for the spinifex hopping mouse, short-beaked echidna, and numerous bird species including coastal raptors.

Included is a visit to a place of outstanding natural beauty including headlands, high cliffs, sheltered bays, and long sandy beaches. Occasionally Southern Right whales can be seen from the cliffs (May to October).

Ancient Land Tours’ whale watching tours takes guests from Ceduna to the very edge of the Nullarbor, and the Head of Bight. Feel the spirit of this ancient land.

Southern Right Whales visit the Head of Bight each year to give birth, mate and socialise. They arrive in May and depart around October. They spend the rest of the time travelling to or feeding well offshore in the Southern Ocean. In June and July most of the whales you will see are adults. You may be lucky enough to observe these 70 tonne mammals mating (look for groups rolling around on the surface).

By late August you can commonly see the mothers swimming along the cliffs with their young calves at their side. At this time there are often 70 or more whales in the area visible from the platform. By the time the whales leave in October the calves have grown and have become strong enough to join their mothers on the long migration south.

There are unparalleled bird watching opportunities, on land we may see dingos, wombats, and kangaroos.
