Out of all the crazy out-of-this-planet experiences a profession in the travel business has provided me, flying in to an isolated camping spot in the Flinders Ranges would have to be one particular of the most memorable.

Camping in a swag for the evening is about as Australian as it gets. Spending a evening out in the bush surrounded by Australian wildlife, absolutely nothing but the sounds of nature and the crispy evening air sounded like the fantastic introduction to the Flinders Ranges, and so it was settled: I would devote my initial evening right here in the bush on the heli-swag expertise.

I arrived at Rawnsley Park Station in the late afternoon, following a 5 hour drive from Adelaide. Driving North from Adelaide, it was below an hour out of the city that I started to expertise and embrace the nation life style South Australia is renowned for and prior to I knew it, in just two hours I was in the Clare Valley.

From Clare it was a straight shoot by means of to my departure point for the helicopter flight. Driving 3 hours north I passed by means of towns so tiny all you had to do was blink and you’d miss them. The countryside was dry, vast, hardy and all the though ethereal, as if you had stepped back in time to a bygone era.
