About the Flinders Ranges
The ancient landscapes of the Flinders Ranges and the Outback have long inspired both visitors and the locals. In this majestic landscape homemade food is highly valued and the last pot of apricot jam can trigger serious family competition.
The tucks and folds of the Southern Flinders Ranges reveal a myriad of micro-climates rich with surprising food encounters. Tucked away here you will find South Australia’s northern fruit bowl, home to avocado and citrus and all manner of winter and summer vegetables enjoying the frost-free environment, while the high rainfall pockets nearby nourish premium stone fruit, apples and more.
On the arid rangelands you will find livestock nibbling on the regional vegetation that will produce the distinctive flavour for which they are praised. Dried fruits and nuts are also produced here and they make a fine local dukkah to pair with the local meats. And don’t forget, these rugged ranges dip down to the seas of the Spencer Gulf, the perfect place to find seafood to complement the growing range of regional wines. In the Outback indigenous communities are now commercially cultivating the bush foods that have sustained them for 40,000 years, and sharing these native fruits and seeds with the world.
The Flinders Ranges and the Outback are home to an ancient landscape and strong creative communities. Experience the food, hear the stories, share the friendship.
