Bookabee Tours Australia shares the good times in the Flinders Ranges

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

One of the great things about traveling through the outback at the moment is the impact that almost 2 years of generous rainfall has had on the region. As I travel through the Flinders on my Chauffeured outback tours, I can identify easily how the region is recovering from the extended drought that has occurred over the past decade and a half.

The first notable impact is the bush (which has generally a brownish hue) is now proudly portraying a greenish tinge. The abundance of water has resulted in streams and creeks that have flowed (some are still flowing) longer and with more vigor. Waterholes have breathed a breath of new life into the scorched dry landscapes. They provide wonderful opportunities to take a break and enjoy the moment with families and the wildlife alike.

Bush flowers and plant have blossomed including some which have not been evident for many years. The wildlife seems to have breathed a sigh of relief and emu and kangaroo alike are enjoying the rewards of a lush breeding season. As i travel across the land it just appears to have a healthier look about it.

One of the memorable experiences of traveling on a Bookabee tour is the ability to stop and take a break when you need to (something you can’t do on a tour bus crammed with 28 other eager passengers). On the weekend we had just that experience. whilst traveling to a bush walking spot to do a bush-walk up to a lookout that features spectacular views of Wilpena Pound, we came across a Emu and his 8 week old emu chicks. we stopped the 4WD and everyone jumped out and enjoyed a few moments of joy as we photographed and videoed nature at its best. Further, whilst we were there it gave me the perfect opportunity to share the Adnyamathanha creation story of the Emu and the Bush Turkey. this story tells why the Emu can’t fly and why the Bush Turkey only has 1 or 2 chicks. what a joy.
