Lake Eyre in flood

IT happens once in a decade.

The heart of outback Australia comes alive, and rivers, lakes and waterholes teem with birdlife and wildflowers.

Many believe Lake Eyre in flood is one of the natural wonders of the world, and one that deserves to be seen from the air.

Flying in a private plane, you will experience a three-day, two-night accommodation package, including a bird’s eye view of the famous Channel Country and Queensland’s outback and, of course, what is sure to be the highlight: a flight over Lake Eyre.

Those who do take up the tour opportunity come from all over Australia and the world.

This tour is escorted by bush poet John Major who guarantees to make you laugh and cry on the three-day, two-night adventure.
