About three and a half hour drive north of Adelaide at the top of Spencer Gulf lies Port Augusta.

As is any other crossroads, it gives every traveler a glimpse of the amazing journey he or she is about to have. Being the so-called crossroads of the land down under, it offers the best and most scenic entrance to the countries most coveted sceneries in the great outback.
From Port August and Hawker over the fascinating Flinders Ranges
Rather than driving several hours beside the majestic Flinders Ranges & Wilpena Pound, get a different perspective of the size and ruggedness of these ancient and largely untouched formations which can only really be appreciated in a high wing plane from your own window seat.
Being the largest mountain range in South Australia, the Flinders Ranges should be on every travellers bucket list. With ranges that stretch for a whopping 430km from Port Pirie to Lake Callabonna, who wouldn’t want to witness such a sight?
The wondrous Wilpena Pound
In the heart of the Flinders Ranges lies Wilpena Pound, a natural amphitheatre of mountains 429 kilometers north of Adelaide, South Australia. This breathtaking landscape has been standing for over eight centuries and has been the home to native Adnyamathanha people for thousands of years. Seeing the beauty of this outback icon would truly give you pause.
