The Painted Desert in South Australia, also known as the Arckaringa Hills, is an area of spellbinding beauty. It is a geological wonderland, and a photographers' delight. When you are keen to take very spectacular Outback photos, this is a must visit place. Join me on a trip to this land of stunning beauty.
The Arckaringa Hills are 150kms north of Coober Pedy. The heritage area begins near Arckaringa homestead and stretches to the north and east, including Mount Arckaringa, Mount Andrews and parts of Arckaringa creek.
You can access the region either from Stuart Highway, or the Oodnadatta Track.
Although the tour to the Arckaringa Hills is fairly short by Australian standards, please be aware that this is very remote country.
