Ngadjuri Country - one day tour
Red Banks Conservation Park is truly an ancient land - it's an amazing place - a garden of Eden - an oasis in the desert - and it's rich in Aboriginal heritage and Dreaming stories. It features a landscape of rugged earth gorges, stunning 30 metre vertical red banks, spring-fed waterholes and is one of the richest Megafauna sites in Australia. As we walk along a goat track down into the main gorge you can feel yourself going back in time and imagining how giant Kangaroos (Procoptodons) and huge wombat like marsupials (Diprotodons) that weighed up to two tonnes, once roamed this area 65,000 years ago. Not much has changed in that time, except the Megafauna are now fossils. Fossils of Diprotodon are on display at the Burra council officers (open Mon-Fri). Fossils of Tasmanian tigers (Thylacine) have also been discovered here. We also visit the Clare Valley and the house (shrine) of John Horrocks, one of the first British settlers in the area, and discuss the effects of British settlement on the Ngadjuri Aboriginal people of the region.
Tour includes pick up and return to Adelaide (Travel in 4WD, excludes lunch).
