Vistas of South Australia (3 days)
South Australia’s outback offers a myriad of incredible vistas. From the moon-scape of Wilpena Pound, to underground living in Coober Pedy, the colours of the Painted Hills and the salt-plains of Lake Eyre, this tour takes you on an in-depth tour in the air and on land. Meet locals who love to share their knowledge and insights, and take some amazing photos!
Everything one could hope for was covered in the schedule and at each stop we were guided by a local expert who gave us a most interesting and thorough background on what we were seeing. The pilot and co-pilot for our trip were also very professional men who never missed a beat.
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
Tony and I thoroughly enjoyed our Outback Adventure. We found the whole tour was run professionally and efficiently. Hard to pick a highlight, as we passed through some wonderful stops in our stunning Outback.
