The Flinders Ranges National Landscape offers many native dishes to tempt the taste buds while discovering the great Australian outback.
Old Bakery Stone Hut in the Flinders Ranges
If heading north in the Flinders Ranges, call into the Woolshed Restaurant at Rawnsley Park and try their local lamb dishes – including an authentic Australian lamb pie ‘floater’ with minted pea soup and bush tomato chutney or a rack of lamb marinated in bush spices. A favourite is kangaroo marinated in garlic and red wine, made with their own Dusty Dog cabernet sauvignon. Make sure to try the famous Quandong Pies at the Copley Bakery, which people travel for miles just to sample.
The Old Bakery Stone Hut in the small township of Stone Hut serves camel, kangaroo or emu pie, local wine tastings and outback flavoured pates including venison, kangaroo, emu, wild boar and crocodile.
There are plenty of cellar doors to visit as well including Bartagunyah, Blesing’s Garden, Remarkable View, Stone Hut Wines and Bundaleer Wines.
There are not only tastes of the outback in the Flinders Ranges, but also tastes of the sea. At Caputos Seafood at Port Pirie, you can try their smoked kingfish, which goes even better when accompanied by locally grown capers.
