This package includes lunch at the iconic Birdsville Hotel and a night in fascinating Coober Pedy.
Flights have not been offered for a few years as there as not been the water in the western river systems & Lake Eyre to show people an amazing spectacle. Below are just a couple of comments from flights we did back then:
This is what Leonie said after joining our flight back in 2010 –
“In October 2010 we did the Lake Eyre Tour. The experience of seeing the vast channel country in flood and how it all channels out into this area is a story within itself.
To capture this it is absolutely amazing & a must do. Not very often we get to experience this & being from the bush ourselves, we loved the very organised trip with great commentary, and amazing views from the air”.
And another from Lyn:
‘Our Lake Eyre Tour with Graham and Deb was amazing! We joined the tour in Charleville and were given a very informative trip over the West, emphasising in the history and culture of each identified spot. Enjoyed a Stop at the Iconic Birdsville Hotel, then onto an eye opening and very full Lake Eyre. We were well catered for during the flight and a generally relaxed atmosphere made for an enjoyable trip. By far the best Tour Operators I have travelled with.’
This is a fantastic 2-day package and a great taste of the Outback – you’ll love it!
Departing Brisbane on your journey to see Lake Eyre, one of Australia’s true natural wonders with a basin area encompassing three states, covering approximately 1.2 million square kilometres. Can you imagine a great lake, right in Australia’s centre, which is around the size of Italy, France and Germany combined! Graham’s commentary will have you enthralled about the vastness of not only the lake but of the river systems and properties in outback Australia.
The historically dry Lake Eyre transforms into a water life oasis, so join us to witness life returning to Australia’s desert. Graham says, “It’s not just about the water in Lake Eyre, it’s the journey of the water to get there”.
This amazing flight, as seen on “Queensland Weekender” (view article here) offers a unique experience to view this water mass and natural wonder from the air, including the Cooper Creek Channel Country and Lake Yamma Yamma, the largest lake in Queensland.
