Orios and Lindsey Zavros and their children stranded in the South Australian outback

A young Perth family have found themselves stranded in the outback by rising floodwaters.

Orios and Lindsey Zavros and their children Zoe and Zane were on an adventure in the Simpson Desert in South Australia when heavy rain left them trapped.

The family of four first got their vehicle bogged and set off an emergency beacon.

But emergency services have been unable to reach the Kallaroo family, with a major storm sweeping across South Australia.

Mr and Mrs Zavros have been told that they could be stranded for up to two weeks.

The family have indicated that they are generally in good health, and have water and food.

Emergency service crews have parachuted in other essentials, including a satellite mobile phone.

It seems the Zavros’ are no strangers to travelling, posting of their various adventures across Australia on social media.

South Australia has had near record-breaking rain, with a cold front hitting the State on Wednesday and bringing winds of up to 70km/h.

The storm has caused blackouts across SA, with Adelaide having power outages.

For the first time in about 18 months, water flowed through the Alberga River in the far north of the State.

The average maximum temperature in the Simpson Desert in November is about 33C, with the minimum about 18C.
