Lake Eyre Flights from Melbourne Added

New Lake Eyre Flights have been added to the Kirkhope Aviation tour schedule.

We have air tours scheduled right up until July 2016.  The feature of our Lake Eyre tours is of course the salt lake itself, but what makes it more spectacular is the lake with water as it then attracts birdlife and the greenery that surrounds contrasting with the hues of the lake.

Lake Eyre Flights – 1 and 2 day tours

Although these are not listed on the tour schedule, we are taking enquiries and keeping a record of those wishing to make Lake Eyre flights.  The reason we do these flights to Lake Eyre on demand is that there needs to be a minimum number of passengers to make it worthwhile, however if you’d like to charter a plane for your own small group where you can add destinations, that option is also available as a bespoke air tour.

1 day Lake Eyre Tour

Lake Eyre Tour - Looking West to Belt Bay April 2016

Lake Eyre Looking West to Belt Bay

There’ll be a stop at Mildura on the way before landing at William Creek and lunching at the William Creek Hotel.  Once we’ve filled our bellies, there’s a fantastic local flight over Belt Bay, the deepest part of lake Eyre.  Wrights Air, a great friend for many years, will be taking you on a low scenic flight over the lake.  After a relaxing afteroon at the local pub you’ll end this day with a scenic flight back to Melbourne.  The one day Lake Eyre tours price is $1,850 per person twin share.

2 day Lake Eyre Tour

The two day Lake Eyre tour is similar to the above, except that there is more time to explore this wonderful salt lake. On the first day there’s a 4 wheel drive tour that takes you out to Belt Bay, the closest and deepest part of lake Eyre to William Creek.  This does depend on the road and weather conditions.  Evening meal and accommodation is at the iconic William Creek Hotel. Cost for the 2 day Lake Eyre tour in the Chieftain or King Air is $2,300 per person twin share. Lake Eyre Tours – 1 and 2 day on demand

A huge thank you for a truly marvellous three days. So well looked after by Tony, nothing was too much trouble, accommodation and meals first class. Amazing views of our beautiful country and a further insight into the lives of the people who live in remote places.
