Mount Samuel by Four Wheel Drive
This is a four wheel drive experience on Alpana Station, situated in the northern Flinders Ranges near the town of Blinman.
Our base is the Blinman Hotel, from which we travel through Glass Gorge and cross the Oratunga Creek to Alpana Station.
A steep descent gives splendid views of Mount Samuel, Lake Torrens, Nilpena Sandhills, Mount Buggery, Mount Deception and Patawarta Hill. Engaging low gear we descend into Mount Buggery Gorge. There is more great scenery before we join the Parachilna Gorge Road back to Blinman.
Next day we head to Brachina Gorge (a geological time trail), and stop at the Razor Back Lookout for views to the eastern side of Wilpena Pound. Our overnight stop is at Rawnsley Park, and the award winning Woolshed Restaurant!
Return to Adelaide is via Burra and the World's End Highway to Robertstown, Eudunda and Kapunda.
