"From the moment we arrived at Moorabbin at 7 am, we were made to feel welcome by Rob, our pilot. Normally not a great fan of small planes, I had no issue whatsoever with the expert piloting of the plane, and felt very secure with Rob's knowledge and expertise. So much to photograph with visits and a walk in the Painted Hills, sunset at William Creek, dinner in the pub, flying over Lake Eyre (with water), visiting Muloorina Station. All we can say is go! You'll have the most wonderful experience and it will live in your memory for a very, very long time."
