These photographs are from my recent trip in the Northern Flinders Ranges working for Operation Flinders. It was my fourth walk with the company in the last 12 months. We had a mix of hot, cold and windy weather over the 8 days of hiking. Always beautiful to see the landscape in different seasons.
All photographs captured on 35mm Kodak film in a Canon SLR camera.
See here for photographs from my first and second hike.
In March I went out with the wilderness therapy company Operation Flinders for my second walk with a group of 10 at risk youths. We walk for 8 days in the Northern Flinders on a property called Yankaninna Station which boarders the Gammon Ranges. We aim to walk 100km over the 8 days. During this walk it was extremely hot reaching temperatures in the 40’s a number of days in a row. The experience was highly challenging but just as rewarding. Its wonderful to be in this landscape for an extended period of time, and we were walking over a new moon period so the stars were particularly prominent and encompassing.
Operation Flinders are always on the look out for new volunteers, see their website to get involved with this wonderful company

In late October I volunteered with the wilderness adventure company Operation Flinders. We traveled to a property bordering the Gammon Ranges in the Northern Flinders Ranges area and hiked for 8 days with a group of high school students. There were many hills and mountains to climb, goat tracks to follow, beautiful sunsets and sunrises, long, hot days and a even a few spots of rain! The landscape was vast… the perfect environment to allow the mind and spirit to wander at its own will. The program is challenging for all involved but the impact it has on everyone is undeniable. If you’re interested in being involved take a look on their website and sign up to volunteer too!
