Walking in the Flinders Ranges is an amazing and memorable experience. Our experienced local guides can offer you three or five day guided bushwalks that explore the rich diversity of the Flinders Ranges.

The rugged and ancient mountains are broken up by spectacular gorges, historic ruins from early settler life, open plains with kangaroos feeding, and big skies that often have wedge-tailed eagles soaring on high.

Walking the Flinders Ranges three and five day walks will be led by Rawnsley Park’s principal bushwalking guide and bushwalking author Kym Tilbrook. The walks on these tours have been chosen as they cover a variety of different landscapes in the local area, which give the walkers a great insight in the diversity of the majestic Flinders Ranges.
