Adelaide 5000 Australia

After a wet and wild ‘Kudlila Rally’ last year, it’s back but hopefully at a warmer and drier time of year! A few route changes including Bundaleer forest and further north into the Flinders Ranges as the long option. It has been renamed ‘Karnu Rally’. Karnu being the Kaurna translation for mountain seeing the route traverses a large portion of the Flinders Ranges. This route truly takes in as much variety and scenery as South Australia has to offer.

This is an unsupported bikepacking event from the River Torrens/Karrawirra Parri to the Spencer Gulf in Port Augusta winding from the Adelaide Hills to the Flinders Ranges using some segments of the Mawson Trail while making the most of Spring Gully conservation park, Mount Remarkable national park, Ikara-Flinders Ranges national park and Yappala Indigenous protected area.
