Fling with Flin­ders

Sunday Mail - Travel/Escape - - SPRING OUTBACK -

The North Flin­ders Ranges is real out­back coun­try but a man­age­able dis­tance from civil­i­sa­tion if you’re a bit ner­vous about plung­ing too deep into the un­known.

The ranges – South Aus­tralia’s ‘‘ gate­way to the Out­back’’ – are home to some of the most stun­ning land­scapes in the na­tion.

World Ex­pe­di­tions (world ex­pe­di­tions.com.au, 1300 720 000) has a guided, seven-day trek on the north­ern sec­tions of the fa­mous 1200km Hey­sen Trail.

You’ll walk with just a day­pack and stay at com­fort­able coun­try ho­tels and sheep sta­tions along the way.

The trip costs $2495 a per­son and there are de­par­tures un­til the end of next month.
