Southern Drive

See why the Southern Flinders Ranges is naturally unexpected with this beautiful drive. Each of the towns along the way offers their own charm from natural, tree-lined main streets to quirky shops and local characters.

A highlight is the natural wonder of Wirrabara Forest. The regeneration after the Bangor bushfire has been quite remarkable. This certainly feels like an enchanted forest where you can enjoy a picnic, let the kids run free and visit one of the local orchards to taste the fruits of the forest.

Exploring the historic homes at Crystal Brook, enjoying tastings of the creamy Golden North ice cream (made locally in Laura) and taking a ghost tour at Gladstone Gaol are some of the amazing experiences and memories to take away from this drive.
