Day One

Adelaide to Birdsville

Make you way to the Adelaide Airport by 5.30 am for a 6.30 am Qantas or Alliance Airlines flight to Olympic Dam.

On arrival at Olympic Dam at 8.00am, we’ll have a short break to stretch our legs before boarding with Wrights Air.  Departing Olympic Dam, we’ll fly up to Marree to refuel, have a coffee and a quick look around town. Once we’re back on the plane, we’ll fly up to Lake Eyre, over the mysterious Marree Man, the Punt on the Birdsville Track, Cooper Creek, Moomba and finally to Innamincka for lunch ‘Innamincka Style’.

After lunch, we’ll hop back in the plane to fly over the spectacular Coongie Lakes and onto the outback town of Birdsville for a restaurant meal and a well deserved rest.

Day Three

William Creek to Adelaide

Wake up on the worlds largest cattle station, Anna Creek Station. Following breakfast, we are back on the plane, flying over the spectacular Painted Hills, a landscape so fragile the only way to see the hills is from the air. We’ll arrive in Coober Pedy, explore the township, visit Umoona Opal Mine and Museum where we’ll have an opportunity to buy some magnificent precious Opals, have lunch and board our Rex Airlines flight back to Adelaide.
