Journey to the inland sea of Lake Eyre and experience South Australia's breathtaking outback
Take a captivating trip into the South Australian outback to visit the incredible inland sea of Lake Eyre - a gigantic salt lake that sits 11m below sea level. Usually dry, the lake is filling from the torrential rain in the east and the parched lands of the outback are coming back to life. Follow the remote Oodnadatta track, explore the mighty Flinders Ranges, discover ancient Aboriginal art and enjoy a thrilling flight over Lake Eyre. This unforgettable trip also includes a scenic boat cruise down Spencer Gulf, and the chance to sample some of South Australia's top wines in the Clare Valley. This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see the Australian outback in a rare flourishing moment and explore a unique and beautiful region of the world.
