The BBC’s latest big thriller ‘The Tourist’, set in South Australia, launches on BBC1 at 9pm on New Year’s Day whisking us to a world Down Under. We follow in Jamie Dornan’s footsteps to the Flinders Ranges where the series was filmed, and reveal five outback experiences to enjoy as part of a big trip to Australia.
With borders expected to open for tourists to visit Oz in February 2022, we go behind the scenes and shine a spotlight some of the region’s lesser known icons which are likely to prove popular with travellers looking for wide open spaces, dramatic landscapes, wildlife in the wild, rich Aboriginal culture, and some true Aussie characters. Just a five hour drive from the vineyard city of Adelaide through the Clare Valley winelands, the Flinders Ranges is on the Explorers Way driving route which snakes all the way up to Darwin in the Top End. It’s an ancient landscape full of hidden gems.
