Travel: from Adelaide 6 hrs
In the morning breakfast will be laid out and swags rolled. The camels are loaded after breakfast and the trek departs. Loading for the first time on a trek appears hectic; loading times will decrease as everyone becomes more confident with the camels and gear. Assistance will be required with the loading and unloading of the camels each day, we only ask that each person helps to their own capabilities. Once the camels are loaded the trek departs. At lunch time we pull up, boil the billy and eat. We continue to walk for a couple of hours after lunch then find a suitable camp for the night.
Fire wood is collected and dinner prepared.
Today the walking takes you up dry rocky creeks, narrow gaps and gorges. You head across the rugged landscape which boarders the protected Lake Torrens and Lake Frome. Unfortunately we are unable to access these lakes directly as they lie on sacred Aboriginal land. From here you cross the water shed to start the journey downstream over large sandy creeks lined with native pine vegetation.
As we wind through the majestic hills covered in mallee trees and native pines you will pas through the gap of the towering ranges to the the welcoming site of the small spring fed water hole. The afternoon produces an enchanting walk along the base of the ranges.
Today you will pass through the valley surrounded by open hills. This day brings changes in the surrounding vegetation with outcrops of acacias and cassias. You will travel further along the rocky creek to be surrounded by the towering gorge walls where you will have the chance to see the endemic yellow footed rock wallaby as you pass by another spring fed water hole.
Following along the creek you encounter several more inviting spings until you pass the historic Angorichina Station Woolshed, a relic from the 1850's before returning to the Flinders and Beyond property where you will take a short transfer to the town of Blinman for the evening. You can explore the small town or Blinman, or take in a tour at the Tin Mine. After checking into your accommodation you will have a chance to refresh and recharge before the group will get together for a final dinner in Hotel.
After a leisurely morning breakfast the group will complete final preparations before the return journey back to Adelaide where the tour will conclude. Expected arrival time in Adelaide is around 4pm so please don't book a departure flight before around 7pm.
