Itinerary: Vistas of South Australia (3 days)
Day 1: Melbourne to Rawnsley Park and Coober Pedy (L,D)
Depart Moorabbin Airport at 8.00am for the South Australian outback. Your pilot will take you for a spectacular scenic flight along the Flinders Ranges to the awe-inspiring Wilpena Pound. Stop in at Rawnsley Park Homestead, overlooking Wilpena’s southern side. Savour lunch at the wonderful Woolshed Restaurant, with its friendly country hospitality, fabulous views and tasty cuisine.
Taking off again, head into the legendary old mining town of Coober Pedy. On the ground travel out to the stunning Breakaways, a striking rocky landscape of flat-topped mesas. Toast the sunset on your first evening in the outback and watch the incredible change of colours on the sandstone.
The Coober Pedy Experience Motel was an opal mine from 1918 until the 1960s. Enjoy a restful sleep in one of the most unusual rooms you’re likely to encounter – surrounded by rock, individually decorated and very, very quiet.
Overnight: Coober Pedy Experience, underground room
I couldn't fault anything to do with this trip. I'd highly recommend this trip (and have already) to anyone thinking of visiting Lake Eyre & surrounds. Thanks to Jake for his thoughtfulness and hospitality, as well as his skillful flying.
