The Painted Desert is located in the outback of South Australia, and it's an otherworldly landscape of colourful sandstone hills and valleys.
The beautiful outcrops of rock glow with subtle hues in the pre-dawn light. The colours are created from the effects of erosion from an ancient inland sea, the residue and the leaching of minerals in the soil create a wonderful mosaic of colours.
During this visit we stayed at Arckaringa Station, a place I can highly recommend. It’s a great place base yourself for a visit.
