    Accommodation In South Australian Outback - Flinders Ranges

    Australia's biggest backyard is a harsh, rugged landscape of gum trees, red soil, wildflowers, stony creeks and starry night skies. This ancient patch of outback is just waiting to be discovered and it's all possible from our Flinders Ranges accommodation.

    Things to Do

    While you're here, you'll come across plenty of kangaroos and emus and you'll enjoy watching the mountains blaze red as the sun sets on the horizon. The remote solitude of the area is peaceful beyond belief. You can go on a guided bush walking tour and ask some of the local Aborigines to tell you a Dreamtime story or, if you aren't keen on walking, you can hit the cycling trails or take a camel safari across the Simpson Desert. Along the way, you'll discover historic farm ruins abandoned by the early pioneers. After all that dusty walking and riding around, how about getting a bird's eye view of the expansive outback by taking to the skies in a plane or helicopter? And then you can take a dip in the 38°C waters of the Dalhousie Springs.

    Lake Eyre is definitely one of the most popular attractions in this desert land. Its beautiful white salt crystals glisten in the sun and, if you're lucky, you might be here for one of the rare occasions when the lake fills with water and shines even more brilliantly. Next on the must-visit list is Wilpena Pound, a 100km wide natural amphitheatre, carved out by 540 million years of erosion. Its magnificence really needs to be seen to be believed.

    If you're a keen golfer, wot about trying out the black, grassless course in the middle of outback Coober Pedy? You can also go fossicking for fossils and opals in Coober Pedy. But if you've caught the mining fever, there's an abandoned copper mine that you can visit in nearby Blinman, to take another step back in time.

    Getting Here

    The most direct way to explore this vast desert area is to fly to Coober Pedy, so make sure you check out these cheap flight deals. From there, you can decide whether you want to stick to a guided tour or take matters into your hands. If you're keen for some independence, you can hire a car at the airport and then you can hit the open road and go exploring. After you've spent some time in the desert, wot about going on a 360km road trip to the Clare Valley wine region?

    Don't wait any longer! Book your flights and one of our Flinders Ranges hotels now so that you can start enjoying the wonders of the outback. Image of The Outback, SA. Courtesy of South Australian Tourism Commission.

    "Great hotel in Coober Pedy."
    The room was spacious and very clean - the bathroom was a decent size too. The staff were very friendly and provided great service. Dinner at the onsite restaurant was delicious however a tastier sausage could be used in their 'big breakfast' and the hash brown omitted. We would most definitely stay at this hotel again and recommend it highly to our friends.
