Lake Eyre Safari

Australian Air Safaris has conducted over 150 air tours to Lake Eyre (Kati Thanda). The significance of the Lake, over recent decades, through natural history documentaries, has become etched in the Australian psyche and a 'bucket list' item for many. Little wonder, its statistics are mind-blowing. Lake Eyre is the size of England and the lowest point on mainland Australia with a catchment area of over 1 million square kilometres. It is as stunning to view from the air when it is glisteningly dry as when it is in flood. Our Lake Eyre Safari tour offers an action-packed weekend into our extraordinary, great outback.
