Bookabee Tours takes in the Flinders Ranges

Thursday, November 4th, 2010

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.

Bookabee Tours Australia - Haydyn moving Echidna off the track to safety in Flinders RangesWe were traveling along a tight dirt track the other day when we came across this Echidna which was stuck in the middle of the road. As there was no room on the track to maneuver around the side of the Echidna, i had to pick it up and move it to safety so that i didn’t accidentally run it over.
