Our flying Australian Adventure takes a detour as we make an unplanned 3.5-hour flight home in our Vans RV7.

Wilpena Pound – Rawnsley Park Station

Destination: Wilpena Pound

We can sum up the Wilpena Pound with only one word – Spectacular. Located in the Flinders Rangers, this natural amphitheatre provokes the imagination to conjure up 101 different ways this ‘out of place’ land formation could have come to be. Surrounded by desert, the spectacular Wilpena Pound is guaranteed to impress, especially from the air. Flying around Wilpena Pound was […]

Episode 4: Fly Wilpena Pound

Episode 4: Fly Wilpena Pound

We were pretty amazed at the incredible scenery in the Flinders Ranges! We have seen some amazing views from the plane before but this one was quite unique to anything we’d seen before. Wilpena Pound is the land formation that attracts all of the attention as a tourist destination, but when we flew from Wilpena Pound to Clare we saw […]

Broken Hill

Destination: Broken Hill

Surprisingly, you could easily spend a week in Broken Hill and not see the endless array of attractions. The experiences on offer range from art, history, food, and mining with a little bit of eccentric thrown in the mix. The town exists because of mining and would probably be one of the most significant mining sites in the world because […]

A Day in Silverton

Our departure is delayed […]

White Cliffs

White CliffsDestination: White Cliffs

When considering a visit to White Cliffs I got mixed reviews from people that had been there. It didn’t come too highly rated, the most common response was “I wouldn’t bother going there, there is nothing there” They were nearly correct, there isn’t a great deal to see, but I’m definitely glad we stopped in, and I would totally recommend […]

Cobar

Cobar NSWDestination: Cobar

For a town of it’s size, it is surprising what Cobar has to offer. Located right in the middle of NSW you get a taste of mining, farming, the outback, and some good old-fashioned country hospitality from the friendly locals. The tourism is primarily built on mining history, but there are a few modern attractions in the mix. Don’t miss […]
