lake eyre is lapping it up!

australia flinders rangesIt’s been a long time between drinks for this part of Australia, so this week’s top trip is an exciting new 4-day adventure that soaks up the spirit of the outback.

Huge Lake Eyre, the normally dry salt lake 11 metres below sea level in the centre of Australia, is filling with water. The parched land is coming to life as recent torrential rain water is making its way slowly from the east coast of Oz to the desert. On Lake Eyre and The Outback you get to travel out to the banks of Lake Eyre and see some of the country’s most spectacular scenery while witnessing the rebirth of this magical land. Join a 2 hour flight over Lake Eyre and Cooper Creek, pass through the rarely visited Tiari Desert via the remote Oodnadatta track and take an unforgettable sunset cruise down Spencer Gulf with breathtaking views over the magnificent Flinders Ranges.

The first departures of Lake Eyre and The Outback take off in June, so don’t miss witnessing this once-in-a-lifetime event!
