This is a free day for interstate guests to fly into day at leisure (breakfast is included for the next day)

AY 1: ADELAIDE TO PORT AUGUSTA 04 April 2022

Welcome to our 5 Day South Australian Art Silo Tour. Our first stop is in the small town of Farrell Flat where the Roseworthy-Peterborough railway line passed through in the late 1800s and early-mid 1900s. Using about 150 litres of paint, local Adelaide artists Jarrod Soden and Matthew Knights spent 140 hours painting the 30-metre tall silo that depicts the last train to pass through this historic township. A bit further on is Wirrabara which has joined the Art Trail after the incredible transformation of the Silo by artist Smug, aka Sam Bates. While pictures show the image, the quality of the work has to be seen to appreciate how good it really is. How the artist keeps a realistic image around the curves of the silos is truly amazing. Our overnight destination is Port Augusta and this is where we have dinner at the motel this evening. Day one ticks all the boxes.

1 night - Standpipe Golf Motor Inn, Port Augusta
Lunch at own expense, dinner in the motel

DAY 2: THE EYRE PENINSULA Tuesday 5 April 2022

This morning we travel to Whyalla - the gateway from the east to the Eyre Peninsula. On arrival we take a look at the brand-new Whyalla Jetty that was recently opened after the old jetty suffered fire damage. The unique shape and design of the Jetty makes Whyalla a big drawcard for the region. In Cowell we will be stopping to take a look at the painted Silo’s where the star is local identity Lionel Deer and his camel Diamantina. Mr Deer is most known in the Cowell community for bringing his camels to the Cowell Christmas Pageant for over 30 years. Lionel represents much of what the fabric of Cowell is made of, a true larrikin with a heart of gold. Our next visit is to Cowell Jade and Gemstones. Cowell is famous for being home to Australia’s only commercial jade mine which produces rare black jade, as well as the more common greens and also some very colourful marble. We have lunch at the Franklin Harbour Hotel, before we visit another silo, depicting an interpretation of two boys jumping off the Tumby Bay Jetty that we take time to look at. Continuing south along the Lincoln Highway, we arrive in Port Lincoln, our base for the next two nights at the Port Lincoln Hotel.

Accommodation: Port Lincoln Hotel (2 nights)
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

DAY 3: PORT LINCOLN Wednesday 6 April 2022

Port Lincoln is located on one of the world’s largest protected natural harbours. Boston Bay an area more than 3½ times the size of Sydney Harbour! We spend the morning with Adventure Bay Charters taking a cruise through Porter, Boston and Proper Bay, then see the sites of Stanford, Winters hills, Boston Island, The National Park and the City. Visit aquaculture sites and taste the local produce. All this sea air will make us hungry so we stay at the Marina for lunch in the local Tavern. This afternoon we visit Constantia Designer Craftsmen – a truly unique attraction. Testimony to this firm’s level of craftsmanship is the unprecedented honours bestowed by the International Guild of Master Craftsmen, Constantia being one of only six firms in the world to be made a fully accredited member. Constantia was commissioned to design and build the Table to the House of Representatives and the Hansard Table, the main tables for the new Parliament House in Canberra. Following our visit, the remainder of the afternoon is free.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

DAY 4: PORT LINCOLN TO PORT AUGUSTA Thursday 7 April 2022

Leaving Port Lincoln, we arrive in Kimba, located at the hallway mark across Australia right at the top of the Eyre Peninsula. It’s surrounded by endless wheat farms growing golden in the sunlight; which was the inspiration behind the concept for the silo art we are about to see this morning. It took the artist 26 days to complete using 200 litres of paint, over five and a half silos. Kimba is also home to the Giant Galah statue and we have lunch at the local pub, then head across to Iron Knob, birthplace of the steel industry in Australia and here we call into the Visitor Centre and Mining Museum. This afternoon we check into our accommodation for the last night of our tour, then we are off to Quorn, for the nightly Silo Light Show that displays an audio-visual celebration of the Flinders Ranges, the Pichi Richi Railways, local stories and other local heritage onto the Silo once the sun goes down.

Accommodation: Port Augusta
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

DAY 5: ADELAIDE HEADING HOME Friday 8 April 2022

Unfortunately, our tour has come to an end but before we make our way back to Adelaide and conclude our tour we will visit the highly acclaimed Australian Arid Lands Botanic Gardens. The Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden features thousands of plants from Australia’s low rainfall regions and is home to over 150 bird species. Enjoy peaceful walking tracks, stunning views of the Flinders Ranges and an informative guided tour. From the Gardens it’s off to Wadlata Outback Centre where we take a walk through the award winning interpretative display the ‘time tunnel’. At the Wadlata Outback Centre you can creep through the jaws of Max, a giant Ripper lizard to begin an unforgettable adventure. Journey back to when the dinosaurs first roamed this land in the Flinders Ranges, you’ll meet the people who first owned, explored and settled in the region. In the G’Day Mate Theatre you’ll meet the people who live here today. Learn about fossils, the Mound Springs along the Oodnadatta Track and the Outback’s precious Opals and minerals. Go underground at Olympic Dam for a real blast. With our journey back in time complete we board the coach for the drive to Adelaide.
