Fly to Adelaide, home of festivals, food, arts, and culture.

The peak rises more than 710 metres above sea level. Later it’s on to our accommodation. (D)

We begin our day by travelling to Port Pirie. Smelters have been in operation here since 1889, and it became the biggest lead smelter in the world by 1934. After a town tour there’s free time to explore this quaint little town. In the afternoon we continue to Port Augusta on the Spencer’s Gulf.  Whilst here we visit the Wadlata Centre, a journey back in time about South Australia and the Flinders Ranges. (B,D)
