AFTER pitching a tent at Willow Springs, the crew begins part 2 of the Flinders Ranges adventure trundling through the Brachina Gorges at Bunyeroo, with Wilpena Pound, Beltana, Warraweena and beyond on the radar.

With red dirt building up in the tyre treads, the convoy stopped at Wilpena Pound where Keith Rasheed provided us with a quick history lesson of the station and surrounding area.

Wheels hit dirt from Wilpena for Beltana, a mine-servicing outpost, before continuing on to Warraweena Station, where we found some sensational technical tracks out past Cockatoo Hut - a great spot to set up the swag for a few nights - especially up Mount Gill.

The tracks in this area are quite challenging and it's important to always concentrate on tyre placement to preserve your rubber's sidewall. It's also extremely remote, so you need to be properly set-up with the right gear.

The episode ends at Moro Gorge, where the gorges meet the plains. In the next episode, the crew has their eyes set on Arkarua and beyond.
