The Flinders Ranges is one of the most spectacular areas in Australia. At Moon Tours we have been lucky to spend a lot of time galavanting around this magic place. Ron grew up in Quorn so it holds and extra special place in our hearts and we can’t wait to get back there again soon.
The gorges, rivers, escarpments and colours are beautiful. Extending into the Gammon Ranges visitors have a lot of choice when it comes to exploring. From easy access dirt roads suitable for 2WD’s, National Parks, long hikes and private land owners facilitating amenities and some really tough 4WD tracks you want to put the Flinders Ranges on your list of outback adventures.
Flinders Ranges adventure: Episode 1
The team tracks the Flinders Ranges north, stopping at iconic outback destinations.
FOR THE sixth season of the 4X4 Adventure Series, Ron, Matt and the team explored South Australia’s stunning Flinders Ranges.
Beginning at the southern edge of the Flinders Ranges – just north of the famous coastal town of Port Germein, at the foot of Mount Remarkable – the team headed north to its first stop at Alligator Gorge to stretch their legs.

It was then on to the four-wheel mecca of Bendleby Ranges, where Ron had a chinwag with Charlie, the manager of the Ranges’ 190km of tracks, who then pointed the convoy in the direction of some freshly laid tracks.
Following plenty of fun on the challenging tracks, a sunset view was enjoyed at the aptly names Sunset Ridge.
It was then on to Quorn, with its famous Pichi Richi Railway. After a quick wander around the quaint town, it was on to the Arden Hills 4WD Track, north of Quorn. This track leads to some sensational vantage points, before ending the day at the base of Arden Hills.
Also on the agenda on this trip were the Willochra Plains, Kanyaka Station and a tour of the Blinman Mine. And what better location to end an episode, than atop the Skytrek Track at Willow Springs.
