Flinders by Foot walks stay at 2012 prices

Award-winning Rawnsley Park Station will keep its 2013 multi-day guided walks at 2012 prices.

Station owners, Tony and Julieanne Smith, said the five-day and three-day walks introduced this year (2012) to showcase the spectacular Flinders Ranges had proved very popular with people of all ages, ranging from their mid-30s to early 80s.

“The Boomer market has been particularly strong,” Tony Smith said.

“Our 2013 walks program begins in May and goes through until the end of October.

“We know the global financial crisis has hurt many people, so we thought we would keep prices at the same level as 2012 to encourage them to step out and see the beauty of the Flinders Ranges.

“Our three and five-day walks give people the opportunity to see a wide area of the Flinders, from St Mary Peak to Blinman Pools to the Chace Range.

“The range of wildlife and wildflowers is amazing and the rugged scenery is simply stunning.”

The Flinders by Foot walks also include an early morning climb to the top of 943m high Rawnsley Bluff to watch the sun rise over the Flinders. The Chace Range walk includes celebratory champagne when people reach the top and a return to Rawnsley Park with an exhilarating 4WD trip.

Mr Smith said walkers had the choice of 5-star accommodation in eco villas or 3.5 star cabins. At night, walkers dine in the station’s Woolshed Restaurant.

He said walkers were guided by bushwalking author Kym Tilbrook and former SA National Parks and Wildlife Service ranger, Volker Scholz, who is also a former operations manager on the iconic Kokoda Track in Papua New-Guinea.

“It’s a great coup for us to get the services of such experienced walking guides,” said Mr Smith.

Costs for the Flinders by Foot walks are $2350 per person for the five-day trek (1BR eco-villa accommodation) or $1875 in a 3.5-star cabin.  Three-day treks are priced at $1435 in an eco-villa or $1150 in a cabin.   All rates are based on twin-share – single supplements apply.
