Drug Interaction Conference & Small Group Tour

June 22 @ 6:00 pm - June 29 @ 6:00 pm

You’re invited to be a part of a conference experience like no other as you discover the remote regions of South Australia and receive a valuable update on the latest concepts in drug interactions in dentistry

You’ll begin your journey in Adelaide, the South Australian capital with a Welcome Networking Dinner. This isn’t a city-based conference, so you’ll leave big-smoke life behind and begin your Outback South Australian adventure the next morning.

Journey through the Southern Flinders Ranges amongst 600-million-year-old mountain peaks and enjoy spectacular views over the Spencer Gulf before arriving at the historic town of Quorn, the setting for many iconic Australian films. Here, you’ll board a privately chartered heritage train for a rail journey along the original Ghan route – travelling between Quorn and Port Augusta on the Pichi Richi Railway.

In Port Augusta take a guided walk through the Arid Lands Botanical Gardens. You’ll continue on travelling through the rugged landscape to the world-famous desert underground mining settlement of Coober Pedy – Australia’s opal capital. The backdrop to many movies, you will spend 2 nights in Coober Pedy, famous for its sun-baked lunar landscape, fascinating history and quirky lifestyle.

The best way and most comfortable way to traverse and appreciate the extraordinary landscape of this remote region is by air. You’ll board an Amaco chartered scenic flight crossing some of the world’s largest stations towards the ever stunning Lake Eyre. You’ll pop in for a spot of lunch at the William Creek Hotel (current population 3) and be one of the lucky few who have the opportunity to explore the Anna Creek Painted Hills. Deep in the South Australian outback, the fragile lunar landscape is a recently discovered and rarely accessed section of the pristine Kanku Breakaways Conservation Park – located within Anna Creek Station, the world’s largest working cattle station.

Continue your aerial journey with a spot of afternoon tea at Mount Eba Station before arriving at the legendary outback town of Maree, which is located at the junction of the Birdsville and Oodnadatta Tracks.

From here it’s back on the road as the journey meanders into the Flinders Ranges.

Travel via Farina located on the old alignment of the Great Northern Railway and continue to the Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary. Arkaroola features rugged mountains, towering granite peaks, magnificent gorges and mysterious waterholes. You’ll explore the area on a guided Scenic Ridge Rim 4WD Tour.

Arkaroola also has one of Australia’s largest privately-owned Astronomical Observatories. You’ll enjoy an intergalactic experience not normally available to anyone but astronomers and scientists, enjoying the best astronomical ‘seeing conditions’ in the Southern Hemisphere. Free of atmospheric and light pollution, it’s a rare chance to ‘tour the universe’ under the best of conditions.

Board your next Amaco chartered flight to Wilpena Pound leaving the dusty bumpy track to more rugged travellers. You’ll get a bird’s eye view over Arkaroola and Wilpena Pound as you fly over the vast Flinders Ranges arriving at the Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park. Spend two nights in the National Park, which forms part of South Australia’s largest mountain range. Enjoy a guided walk into Wilpena Pound to Wangara Lookout and learn about the Hills family history.

Venturing beyond the Flinders Rangers you’ll head to the stunning Eyre Peninsula visiting Arno Bay and the Tumby Bay Silo Art before ending our itinerary in Port Lincoln for 3 nights.

Known as the seafood and aquaculture capital of Australia and also called the “Seafood Frontier”, it boasts the largest fishing fleet off any Australian town or city. Sink your teeth into the Eyre Peninsula’s legendary oysters on a Coffin Bay Oyster Farm tour and enjoy freshly caught local seafood samplings on a cruise of Boston Bay.

You’ll end the trip with an excursion to Whalers Way, a privately owned piece of land on the tip of the Southern Eyre Peninsula. It offers some of the most spectacular, accessible and dramatic coastal views in the state.

Your 12-day itinerary will blend the very latest in dental drug education seamlessly with a range of authentic travel experiences.

Uncompromising cleaning and hygiene practices are already a feature of every Amaco tour, and this hasn’t changed. If anything, we’re more fastidious now and ensure that additional cleaning, sanitising, and hygiene practices have been implemented in all areas with particular emphasis on high touch points and hard surfaces.

All coaches, planes, vehicles, and lodges we will be using are fully equipped with all that you will need. Hand sanitising stations will be available in all public areas and personal hygiene kits will also be provided where appropriate.

Remember… this conference is limited to 34 people including partners. Places will be allocated in the order that completed registration forms and deposits are received.

We certainly hope that you can join us as we travel through South Australia in June next year.
