This trip exceeded all our expectations in every way. Amazing trip of a lifetime from Longreach to Lake Eyre; flying over fresh and salt water lakes and the huge river systems of the Channel Country/Lake Eyre region was breath taking.
Our pilot took us over the Channel Country giving us a guided tour of the most diverse and magnificent country that I personally have ever experienced. We spent a night in Birdsville staying at the famous Birdsville Pub mixing it with the locals and listening to their yarns, a ton of fun was had by all.
Phillip has such a wealth of knowledge, answering questions while giving us detailed information of the area. We will be back to do it again.
