The Luxury Lodges Air Safari Begins

Boarding your Beechcraft Super King Air at Moorabbin is an exciting start to the next 13 days of your life on the luxury air safari.. This exclusive twin turbine aircraft will take you across Australia to some of the best upmarket glamping and luxury lodge destinations. The luxury starts as soon as you step on board your aircraft for your air adventure.

Departing Melbourne in the morning, you’ll head for Baillie Lodges Longitude 131 at Ayers Rock. We then head for Bamurru Plains, a WildBush Luxury destination east of Darwin, hosting a multitude of wild buffalo, crocodiles, sea eagles and barramundi. Saying goodbye to Bamurru will be difficult, however we head to more luxury lodgings at Berkeley River Lodge in Western Australia. Not to be outdone, we will fly from Berkeley to Kimberley Coastal Bush Camp, an exclusive retreat in the Top End, with a maximum of 12 guests at any given time.

After exploring the Kimberley Coast, you will be staying in an incredibly isolated yet stunning location on Ningaloo Reef, at the stunning Sal Salis – ‘glamping’ in wilderness tents. From Ningaloo to Kangaroo Island, our luxury lodge experience continues at another Baillie’s Lodge called the Southern Ocean Lodge with breathtaking coastal panoramas on the southern shores of Kangaroo Island.
