South Australia’s rugged outback region is definitely worth a road trip lasting a few days or even a week. The surreal, desert landscape stretches from the Flinders Ranges and area north of the Eyre Peninsula, all the way up to the Northern Territory border.
One of the outback’s most recognised destinations is the Flinders Ranges − South Australia’s largest mountain range with the iconic Wilpena Pound.
Start your journey form the ranges, and drive past wild-western outback towns such as William Creek, Innamincka and Coober Pedy with its many underground homes.
Or have an adventure along the 620 kilometre Oodnadatta Track, a gravel road which follows the old Ghan railway line and the Overland Telegraph.
