Splashout in Flinders Ranges

Winter in the Flinders Ranges

Wednesday 7 July – Sunday 11 July 2021

Join Krysia, Gaynor and Kathy for a 4 night/5 day Art Trip to Quorn in the stunning Flinders Ranges.

Flinders Ranges showcases some of the most dramatic and beautiful landscapes.  The region is home to a wide range of native flora and fauna. We will capture some of these exciting features in our en plein air sessions plus the sweeping vistas, open skies and magnificent starry night skies (Vincent would be jealous). Fabulous photo opportunities, Pichi Richi Heritage Steam Train ride through the beautiful countryside; spectacular starlit audio/visual light show (complimentary Splashout bubbles included); gourmet catered meals and much more …
