Wish You Were Here - Flinders Ranges
Discover the rugged beauty of SA's Outback in the Flinders Rangers, an iconic 4WD destination featuring impressive mountain ranges and spectacular gorges. Explore this adventurous region in the Off Grid, a top-of-the-range luxury off-road caravan built to take you to the most extreme places.
The Outback experience starts as soon as you pass the town of Quorn, home to the famous Pichi Richi Railway, a heritage railway operating since 1878. Travel back in time on this restored steam train while enjoying the breathtaking scenery. Choose from full or half-day trips between Quorn and Port Augusta.
As you continue north through the town of Hawker, the towering walls of Wilpena Pound in the distance mark the beginning of the 95,000 hectare national park. Accommodation options abound ranging from powered caravan sites at the Wilpena Pound Resort to bush camping in the park or at a remote outback station.
The Off Grid has been built to be put through its paces so exchanging the tarmac for a corrugated, dusty road poses no challenge to this premium off-road van. Leave the crowds behind to find a quiet spot without any facilities to experience the beauty of the Flinders Ranges. The REDARC battery management system combined with 510 watts of solar power keeps everything ticking over in your five-star home away from home.
Two 95L water tanks ensure a more-than-sufficient capacity in this semi-arid zone where rainfall can be scarce for years on end while the endless hot water service is a welcome luxury in this harsh environment. The fully equipped kitchen with cupboards galore means you can hunker down for an extended stay without having to worry about running out of supplies.
Make sure you pack your hiking boots because the Flinders Ranges is a bushwalking mecca. Venture into Wilpena Pound to check out Hills Homestead and enjoy the awe-inspiring views from the three lookouts. For the keen walker, the 14.6km return hike to St Mary Peak rewards with magnificent vistas of the central Flinders Ranges. At the end of an intense day of exploring, sink down into the comfort of the Italian leather lounge while enjoying a well-earned glass of wine or a refreshingly cold beer.
The exhilarating drive through Bunyeroo and Brachina Gorges is a must. The 20km Brachina Gorge trail weaves its way through dramatic scenery and you’re likely to spot emus or euros. The Off-Grid’s strong lightweight frame handles these rough tracks with ease while the mesh stone guard with heavy duty Lotus Caravans mud flaps protects the van from stone chips and other damage.
For a genuine off-road experience, embark on an epic 200km journey to the Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary in the Gammon Ranges. This off-road adventure is a breeze in this state-of-the-art luxury van kitted out with every gadget possible for an unforgettable road trip.
Available in 12 uniquely designed ergonomic floor plans, ranging from 16’6” to 23”3’, the Off Grid can be customised to suit your specific needs.
