Sink into your seat as our privately chartered aircraft whisks us from Melbourne to Port Augusta. On arrival, we tour the Wadlata Outback Centre, then board our private carriage for a journey along the historic Pichi Richi Railway. Our train continues its gentle chug along a section of the original Ghan route before we pause at Woolshed Flat for a Devonshire tea. Disembark at Quorn and travel by road to Wilpena Pound Resort in Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park. Here, the cracked and crimson-coloured earth, offset by the blue sky, speaks of the South Australian outback. We enjoy canapes and bubbles while watching the last rays of the setting sun descend over the walls of Wilpena Pound.

Awake to the sounds of the bush and the remarkable scenery of Wilpena Pound. Today is spent amid the rocky peaks, red gorges and parched river beds that make up the 800-million-year-old landscape. A convoy of 4WDs takes us on a discovery through the region’s highlights. Peer into Brachina Gorge, survey the rugged walls of Bunyeroo Valley and keep an eye out for kangaroos, emus and the rare yellow-footed rock-wallaby. In the afternoon, follow one of the walking tracks or take a flight to experience the full 83 square kilometres of Wilpena Pound from the air. This evening we’re treated to a private dinner beneath a blanket of stars.

Farewell Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park after a final breakfast at the resort. We then travel by road to Port Augusta, where we meet our private aircraft for the return flight to Melbourne.
