Itinerary: South Australia – Flora, Fauna & Feast (5 days)
Melbourne – Mildura – Flinders Ranges – Lake Eyre - William Creek
Begin your Lake Eyre and South Australian adventure at Kirkhope Aviation’s departure lounge at 7.15am conveniently located at Moorabbin Airport with ample, unrestricted car parking right next to our hangar. An early 8.00am departure to make the most of the day.
Fly from Melbourne to Mildura for a short refuelling stop before we continue to the Flinders Ranges with a scenic flight over the spectacular Wilpena Pound. Enjoy friendly country hospitality and a mouth-watering lunch at Rawnsley Park Station in their authentic Woolshed restaurant overlooking the southern side of Wilpena Pound.
Fly onto Leigh Creek to refuel, then enjoy a stunning ‘low and slow’ scenic flight over Lake Eyre, featuring Belt Bay, Jack Boot Bay, Warburton Groove and up to the Warburton inlet.
Land at William Creek, famous for its pub (one of the most remote in Australia) and the closest town to Lake Eyre North. Check into your ensuite accommodation for the night. Enjoy a refreshing ale at the hospitable William Creek Hotel and quality outback pub grub for dinner.
We really appreciated your warm friendliness as host, and professionalism as pilot. We felt weary on Thursday, as I am sure you did also. I didn’t pick the winner of the Melbourne Cup, alas!!!
