Lake Eyre and Birdsville Hotel
DEPART BRISBANE - Waiting for it to rain again in the catchment area before our flights will operate again - email for updates or think about joining our 9-Day Air Safari to Central Australia & the Kimberley that includes flying over Lake Eyre, which is a sensational sight even without water!
Today we leave Brisbane on our journey to see Lake Eyre, one of Australia’s true natural wonders with a basin area encompassing three states, covering approximately 1.2 million square kilometres. Can you imagine a great lake, right in Australia's centre, which is around the size of Italy, France and Germany combined!
The historically dry Lake Eyre transforms into a water life oasis (and has done for a few years now!). Join us to witness life returning to Australia's desert. "It's not just about the water in Lake Eyre, it's the journey of the water to get there".
This amazing flight, as seen on "Queensland Weekender" (view article here) offers a unique experience to view this water mass and natural wonder from the air, including the Cooper Creek Channel Country and Lake Yamma Yamma, the largest lake in Queensland.
We also stop off at the famous desert township of Birdsville to enjoy a visit to the iconic outback pub - the Birdsville Hotel.
