Wine And Stuff

You can sometimes uncover delicious food in the most unlikely places. The Southern Flinders Ranges has some hidden delights. 

Foodies looking for a place in winter to enjoy some of SA’s best food and wine with awesome views to boot should check out the Southern Flinders Rangers. Discover the thriving food and wine culture of the region, from local cafés, pubs, produce outlets and bakeries (Stone Hut anyone?) to picturesque vineyards and wineries; check out some of the area’s food and wine offerings here.

InDaily recently  did a feature on the culinary delights of the Flinders Ranges recently, which is well worth a read.

And Believe it or not, bush tucker can be gourmet.

Take for example local producer, Orroroo Kangaroo. Owned by Taryn Ackland, they produce kangaroo-meat range which InDaily reports include “pastrami, mettwurst, pepperoni, schnitzels, sausages, burgers, stir-fry, kransky, fritz, kabanos and jerky, as well as other cuts.”

While most most people tour this area while on a Sunday drive, there’s a much, much better way than peering out from a car window. By bike! (Hint, the small town of Melrose is a Mountain Bike mecca, so what’s to say you can’t mix riding and eating in a weekend).

At Bike SA, we’re actually heading up to The Southern Flinders Ranges as part of our Annual Tour in September this year. And in May 2017 we’ll be back up there again running short cycling trips know as the “Mini Mawson” rides (part of the Outback Odyssey) and they range from 5 to 7 days and cover some spectacularly scenic parts of the Flinders Ranges.

Time for a cycling holiday!


  • Join Bike in May 2017 on the Outback Odyssey, which runs through the Southern Flinders Ranges and includes shorter 5, 6 & 7 day options.
