We enjoyed ourselves immensely and wish to thank Keith for being such a good pilot, guide and host. The tour was everything that we could wish for – there was plenty of water in Lake Eyre and throughout the surrounding area, Cooper Creek at Innamincka was flowing and Arkaroola was just amazing.
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
It was one of the more memorable mini holidays that we have ever taken. Keith is a delightful man, generous and hospitable host and great pilot. Good food, good accommodation and pleasant company. Two big hits were Ernie Mitchell at Lake Mungo and the hospitality of Cindy at Muloorina Station.
