Australia is a vast continent, and nowhere is this more applicable than in the Outback. One of the best ways to explore this area is by air, giving a unique perspective, and making the distances seem shorter.
We can tailor make an itenary for you taking in such destinations as White Cliffs, Broken Hill, Cameron Corner, Birdsville, etc.
Three Hummock Island, situated just off the North West coast of Tasmania, offers a once in a lifetime experience in a one of a kind location. With a population of just two for the majority of the year, you will virtually have your own private island for the duration of your stay. Three Hummock Island has one of the purest environments on the planet. Crystal clear water, white sandy beaches, inland lakes and forests remain largely untouched. The island is also home to abundant native wildlife, making it a nature lovers paradise.
Departing Lilydale Airport you will get to watch the scenery change outside the aircraft from hills, to farmland, to eventually large dry cattle and sheep stations, heading for your first two pubs at White Cliffs. This tiny opal-mining town is extremely photogenic and features a uniquely Australian underground bar! Here we will have a BBQ lunch, and a short walk down the hill to pub number two and even a quick sticky beak into an opal mine. Following lunch you will depart for pub number three (Wishing Well pub) and then onto Tibooburra for pubs four and five as well as dinner and an overnight stay at the famous Family Hotel.
After breakfast you will depart Tibooburra for the extremely remote Cameron Corner, where we can literally taxi the plane up to the front yard of the pub! Here, you might like to try golf at Australia's only golf course laid out over three states. The next stop on your advenutre is Birdsville, which has possibly the most famous Outback pub in Australia. There is a fascinating Outback Working Museum here as well as plenty of photographic opportunities and the chance to swap yarns with locals.
In the afternoon you will fly over the vast Lake Eyre and onto William Creek for dinner and an overnight stay.
Day three sees you depart William Creek for Arkaroola (one of the highlights of the South Australian Outback), then on to Broken Hill and Silverton, before departing Broken Hill for Lilydale.
