The Flinders Ranges Bucket List Ride
The epic Flinders Ranges is on every Adventure Riders Bucket list but 90% of you will give it a miss because its so remote and there’s very little solid info on where you can and cant go. With most stations being motorcycle no go zones, you are usually limited to public roads and access routes…until now!!!
Through years of hard work and forging amazing relationships with the great station owners in the Flinders Ranges, we can now offer a 5 day ride through some of the most remote and unseen landscapes and tracks in Australia on Private Stations!
We have a 5 day Adventure Ride this July for a maximum of 8 Adventure Riders.
- Option 1 – Arrive SUNDAY 23rd of July – Ride Monday to Friday the 28th – Depart SATURDAY the 29th of July
Based out of the incredible Gum Creek Station you will get to experience the brilliant Flinders Ranges and be guided by one of the most experienced Flinders Ranges Adventure Riders in the area. You will see exclusive country generally a no-go zone to motorcycle riders, along with the iconic places that you will be familiar with from all the photos you see online and in the Flinders Ranges promo’s.
Your Hosts: The Extreme Motorsports Association (NFP)
Catered by: Le Fresh Cuisine.
Organized and lead by: Stuart Duisberg on the well setup DR650 – Stuart has been traveling and camping in the Flinders Ranges for more than 30 years. He currently organizes the annual “FLINDERS CLASSIC” ride and the Flinders Ranges ADV Classic along with many other group rides in both South Australia and the Victorian High Country. Stuart is also a professional sports and action photographer and all photos/videos he takes will be edited and made available to all riders. Stuart is also an ADV rider trainer that conducts training at a ride school in South Australia.
You will be spoiled at breakfast, lunch and dinner by Leona Le and her amazing cuisine or also many of the various great places to eat around the Flinders Ranges. You will stay in the Luxury accommodation at Gum Creek Lodge for the entire stay. On every day of the tour we provide a picnic lunch that we prepare ourselves from our mobile kitchen or lunch at a local cafe/pub/bakery.
You will have the support of a backup vehicle and sweep riders.
Your home base will be the awesome Gum Creek Lodge where we will start from in the mornings and return to each night. Hot showers, comfy beds, great food and a roaring camp fire to relax with. There will be cold Beers in the fridge and plenty of space if you want to bring your favorite night caps.
The riding will be something you will never forget and is described by many riders as the best Adventure riding they’ve ever done! You will get to ride tracks and see views that very few people ever get to see on 2 wheels. You will also get to visit the iconic lookouts, gorges and escarpments in the promotional photos that you have always wanted to see. If you open a map and draw a Triangle from Wilpena to Leigh Creek then up to Arkaroola and back you will get an idea of the areas we will be riding in. You will even get down to the incredible Lake Torrens.
We will take into account all the things you want to see and also have plenty of stops for those photo opportunities.
You will not have to be loaded up with all your gear and panniers, just the basics so you get to ride your Adventure bike stripped back to its lightest. You will need to bring water in a camelback, a spare front tube and levers, Zip Ties and a small tool kit only.
