After an outback breakfast at 8.00 am, we hit the skies for our birds eye view of the amazing Lake Eyre with water and its incredible bird and other wild life. In the afternoon, the tour will continue south and visit the old railway town of Farina. No tour is complete without spending some time admiring the beautiful colours of the Ochre Pits, and stopping in to see an Outback identity, Talc Alf. The tour arrives at Parachilna late in the afternoon, where your night's accommodation awaits at the iconic Prairie Hotel, Parachilna.
