I would like to add my praise for the wonderful way in which the tour was organised. I too would like to say how safe I felt and the interaction between Kim and David and the tour group made every one feel at home. The fact that you booked us into other family businesses added to the feeling of "family" that was the signature of the trip. I will recommend your business whenever I get a chance and hope I can travel with you again.
Thank you for a Wonderful holiday to Tasmania You have gone above and beyond all expectations. Your Planning and Care made each one of us feel Very Special. And I will certainly be recommending your Business to everyone, Young and Old."
I had a lovely holiday with all you fellow travellers, being a small group we got to know each other very well, even though some of us have known each other for many years but have reconnected! DAVID could make that bus dance and whirled us around all these mountains and corners in an amazing and very reassuring safe fashion. Thanks to you both, we just walked in to pre-arranged venues and received top treatment, with top meals and accommodation. I also liked the way you supported family owned businesses who you returned to. Fully recommended company!
fully hosted and wonderful tour
DAY 1 – HOME TO FLINDERS RANGES
Wednesday 15th May 2019
Welcome to Outback South Australia featuring bucket list items the Flinders Ranges and Lake Eyre. We are greeted with a smile from our friendly EP Bus Charters team as we begin our journey to the stunning Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park. We arrive in Wilpena Pound to observe the ever-changing colours of the sunset with Stokes Hill Sundowners. Marvel at this ancient landscape from a spectacular viewing location before dinner at the resort.
(lunch at own expense / dinner in hotel).

Day 2 – FLINDERS RANGES – MARREE
Thursday 16th May 2019
We have an early start as we travel to Parachilna for lunch in true outback style at the Prairie Hotel. This afternoon we stop in Farina, once a thriving town that served a huge area with mail runs reaching as far away as Innamincka and Cordillo Downs. We have time to wander the old town, walk through old rooms and read the informative storyboards. We continue to Marree, the town famous for being the junction of the illustrious Oodnadatta and Birdsville Tracks. Once a thriving centre for transport and communications, relics of a bygone era remain. The local Marree Pub – like so many in remote parts of Australia – is the social centre of the community – and is where we’ll be staying tonight. Tonight, make sure you look up into the night sky, it’s like a blanket of stardust and twinkly stars. It’s a true outback experience.
(breakfast & dinner in hotel / lunch included).
Marree Hotel Motel (subject to availability)
DAY 3 – LAKE EYRE
Friday 17th May 2019
Pack your camera as we take to the skies! We have an incredible chance to witness the magnificent Lake Eyre North from above with a scenic flight . After an unusual rainfall in Queensland, an enormous body of water has made its way down to Lake Eyre, creating a breathtaking natural phenomenon called the Channel Country. Our scenic flight will showcase the spectacular flood waters, the Warburton Delta and Cooper River System. Look out for the changing colours and wildlife below. For those not flying today, we adventure along the Oodnadatta Track, passing Mutonia Sculpture Park. Mechanic, turned artist, Robin Cook, has created a unique attraction in this isolated area. Spot the two upright planes or the gigantic metal dingo known as “the big dog”. Take in the views from the Lake Eyre South lookout before visiting the old Curdimurka Railway Siding and at the Old Ghan railway bridge across the Stuart Creek.
(breakfast & dinner at hotel / packed lunch included).
Marree Hotel Motel (subject to availability)
Day 4 – MARREE – LEIGH CREEK
Saturday 18th May 2019
We begin our journey home re-tracing our steps through Farina and Lyndhurst to our overnight destination, Leigh Creek. The contemporary town was built to house employees and their families who work at the huge Leigh Creek open cut mine which exists 22m north of the town. Tonight, we enjoy our farewell dinner at Leigh Creek Bar and Grill.
