Travel Guides: May 4

Travel Guides are off to the Flinders Range in South Australia.

Travel Guides tonight are off to the Flinders Range in South Australia.

On their trip are the Murray River, Wilpena Pound, Parachilna, Quorn and a helicopter ride.

Starting in Renmark, the houseboat mecca of the mighty Murray, our Guides pick up their houseboats and discover that driving a boat as big as a house is just as hard as it sounds. After a brush with neighbouring boats, a waterfront restaurant and a tree, our Guides manage to find a mooring and relax into all that life on water has to offer, including on board jacuzzis.

The Murray River is the home of high-octane water sports, so our Guides try getting towed behind a ski-boat on a sea-biscuit. For even more revs, they have a go in a Dinghy Derby boat, a death-defying dash around the river bends.

Back on dry land, this trip kicks into 6th gear at the Loveday 4×4 Adventure Park where our Guides get into battle mode. On the largest gel blasting field in the country, they’re unleashed on the locals with semi-automatic gel blasters.

Leaving the Riverland and the Murray River behind, our Guides swap the river for the road, driving north to the magnificent Flinders Ranges and Wilpena Pound. It’s all about outback luxury here as they stay in eco-friendly villas at Rawnsley Park Station, a huge sheep property with a pool voted one of the most Instagrammable in the world. Our Guides are put to work with the sheep but some need to get the flock out.

7:30pm tonight on Nine.
