Stories from South: Outback Pilots

SA Tourism travel blog

Meet Doug Sprigg, an outback pilot who spends his days flying over the wild frontiers of his backyard, the vast South Australian outback. His flight path covers 800,000 square kilometres, an area bigger than Belgium, Netherlands and France combined. The 66-year-old runs and lives at Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary in the farthest reaches of the Flinders Ranges and says it’s craggy peeks, towering ridgelines and sweeping gorges are best explored from the air.
