Lake Eyre Has Some Water 

  Once again we have some water in Lake Eyre… falls up to 200 mm in various areas. Here’s a short video. Who knows how long it will last or whether there will be more rain? Regardless, it has freshened up the countryside and is stunning with or without water. We are offering three tour options:
Options 1 & 2: See Lake Eyre in 1 or 2 days, NOW while it has water:
1 day Fly in the King Air to William Creek, enjoy lunch at the famous pub, then a 1 hour low level Lake Eyre scenic flight and return home  by 7pm… $1,850pp min 8 pax.

2 days Same as Option 1 above plus overnight at William Creek and a ground tour to the Lake…  $2,300pp

These trips are on demand and so email us to advise your option and preferred month (say Feb, Mar, Apr) so we can organise groups.

Option 3: Join one of 5 scheduled tours
Our popular Taste of the outback 3-4 day trips via Birdsville, Lake Eyre and Arkaroola… Feb 28th, Mar, Apr, May, Jun & Jul… See availability

Recent Successful Tours and Charters


One day tours to King Island and/or Milawa have been very successful. Typically, groups have booked the trip for business incentive rewards and all aboard have enjoyed each trip with great food, company, tours and laughter.

Air Charter Service and Bespoke Air Tours

Air Charters:
While the Government was in election mode we ferried Ministers to various destinations within the State.
Luckily Victoria has escaped a bad fire season so far and hence we have not done many fire fighter transfers. Hopefully we don’t experience severe fire weather in the remaining Summer.
Bespoke Air Tours:
Don’t forget that while we have our list of Benchmark tours you can also design your own “Bespoke Tour”. See pages 21-24  in our new Brochure 2015-16 for more suggestions.
