Default Flinders Ranges and South Australia

It was a cool and sunny ride for ozav8r and myself starting last Friday 31st of March.

There were no pic's on the ride to SA as we were kinda in a hurry as there was 840 or so km to complete before nap time.

Ready to leave AM Friday.



But we made it to the Clare Valley, just in time to murder a couple of South Australian Reds, before slipping off into zzzz mode.

The Accomodation ( quite fine I must say ) www.wutheringheights.com.au

Glen Morris cottage.







It was very romantic, but we didn't have time for romance. We quaffed down the complementary bacon and eggs and hit the road.

Destination Angorachina Village in the Flinders Ranges.

We made a stop at Jamestown.

That's the ANZ bank, one of the few places still trading in Jamestown. Alas it was Saturday, so it was closed too....



Then up the highway to Orrorroo (try saying that after a bottle of Shiraz)

We stopped at Hawker to refuel and have a pie, then made a quick detour to Wilpena Pound Village.

20 km from Hawker.





The scenic Bunyeroo Gorge was our first taste of Flingers Ranges dirt roads.





The Africa Twin doing what it does best...



The little XT, did a great job too!



Our home for the next 3 nights. ( The shop has everything you need for an extended stay)
