Ultimate Outback Air Safari (15 days)
featuring The Kimberley
Explore two of Australia’s most strikingly beautiful outback regions – the Kimberley in north-west Western Australia, and the Northern Territory.
Travelling in style in our well-appointed Chieftain, with leather seats, room to stretch out, no more than eight fellow travellers, a window for each passenger, with the ability to land on airstrips close to the action, you’ll visit some of the most remote destinations in our vast country.
Just because we’re going to remote areas doesn’t mean we scrimp on luxury and exclusivity. You’ll stay in some incredible resorts in spectacular settings – Arnhemland, a Territory cattle station, Purnululu National Park, the Kimberley coast and Ayers Rock. You’ll also be treated to some more traditional outback experiences like the Birdsville Hotel, Adels Grove and Coober Pedy.
The Ultimate Outback Air Safari. A journey you’ll never forget.

Itinerary: Ultimate Outback Air Safari (15 days)
Day 1: Melbourne to Innamincka and Birdsville (L,D)
Depart Moorabbin Airport at 8.00am. Fly over NSW and into South Australia and the tiny outback town of Innamincka. On the way in, your pilot will take you in low over the Dig Tree, where the explorers Burke and Wills famously set up camp.
Meander along the Cooper Creek and take in the stunning birdlife, spot the occasional inquisitive animal on the banks, and marvel at the variety of flora along this surprisingly serene waterway.
Over the border into Queensland and Birdsville, sunset drinks are at Big Red, the first of 1,140 parallel sand dunes marking the edge of the Simpson Desert – look out over the vast expanse of not very much, and you’ll truly know you’ve made it to the outback! To end the day, we stay in one of Australia’s most iconic pubs — the Birdsville Hotel.
Overnight: Birdsville Hotel
Day 2: Birdsville to Lawn Hill (B,L,D)
Flying north to up near the Gulf of Carpentaria, your aircraft will land a short walk from your room or cabin at Adels Grove, in Boodjamulla (Lawn Hill) National Park, overlooking the stunning Lawn Hill Creek.
Lawn Hill Gorge is one of the most spectacular gorges in the Gulf Country, with luscious tropical vegetation, sheer red cliffs and enchanting green water. A solar electric powered pontoon boat will take you on a cruise through the gorge to its summit, where you’ll find yourself in a small oasis with a beautiful waterfall. A swim at the falls and nearby bubbling spa is available, subject to conditions.
Then it’s back to Adels Grove for pre-dinner drinks in the open-air restaurant.
Overnight: Adels Grove, room or cabin
