Getting there & around
Port Augusta is the main transport hub for travel to and from the Flinders Ranges, with regular air, bus and train services.
Gulf Getaways (1800 170 170, 08-8642 6827; www.gulfgetaways.net; 12-14 Victoria Pde, Port Augusta) can supply chauffer-driven cars, vans and buses from Port Augusta to anywhere in the Flinders Ranges area and beyond. It also has 4WDs and other vehicles for hire including the requisite safety gear, spares and advice for safe outback driving.
There are good sealed roads north to Wilpena Pound and Leigh Creek. The Marree road skirting the western edge of the Flinders Ranges is sealed to Lyndhurst.
Check with DEH offices for current information, as gravel roads can be closed by heavy rain. For recorded information on road conditions in the Flinders Ranges and the outback, call 1300 361 033.
