Unique cuisine

Ever eaten emu egg omelette, kangaroo tail soup or how about camel sirloin with sweet potato wedges, native thyme and garlic chive butter? A dessert of warm Quandong (wild peach) pie with fresh cream?

When you pull up at the Prairie Hotel in Parachilna, you’ll find a top-notch menu. It’s thanks to the chefs who combine bush tucker with European and Asian style cuisine. Kangaroo, emu and bush tomatoes are just some of the ingredients.

Dining on the best Flinders produce

Taste some of Australia's most unique cuisine in the Flinders Ranges and Outback.

Iconic pub food
As you travel through the Flinders Ranges and Outback, you’ll find that most towns have a lovely old stone pub at the heart of their community. They’re great places to stop, get a fantastic steak and watch as the locals meet up for a drink and swap stories.

Many have been used in films and advertising because of the way they fit the popular ideal of the Australian country pub. Stop at the William Creek Hotel and check out the thousands of business cards and hand-scrawled notes that adorn its walls. It's like a giant visitor's book!

Award-winning pastries 
As you drive through the towns of the Flinders Ranges, you’ll find bakeries with award-winning cakes and pies. Try the rabbit stew pie if you get a chance or quandong pie if you have a sweet tooth.

On a warm day, there's nothing better than ice cream; you'll find some weird and wonderful flavours at Golden North in Laura. 

Visit cellar doors

The Southern Flinders has a handful of wineries establishing themselves in the rich soil. Several have won medals for their reds and whites. It’s well worth slipping off the main road for a taste of something new.
