What to bring

We often get asked what to bring on one of our air safaris, so below is some more information to help you decide what to pack and what not to! If you still have questions, please feel free to call our office on 1300 206 130. We are more than happy to help!

Air Safari Pack

On all trips you will be provided with a complimentary Air Safari Pack when you arrive at our departure lounge. The Safari Pack includes a light carry on bag, alluminium drink bottle, hat and bag tag.


Tours to South Australia, Queensland, New South Wales and Northen Territory:

Depending on the particular time of year, temperatures vary between day and night considerably. During normal season (April to September), you should expect daytime temperatures between 15 and 35 degrees, with overnight temperatures generally between 5 and 15 degrees. Note that particularly in June and July, min temperatures in the outback can drop to zero degrees, so layered clothing is helpful in dealing with this.

We recommend you look at the forecast for some of your destinations in the days leading up to the trip.

Tours to Tasmania:

Temperatures can vary in Tasmania, so be prepared for a bit of everything! Our tours to Tasmania and the Bass Strait Isles are conducted from September through to May. Although weather is hard to predict, we suggest bringing a warm jacket and long pants just in case.

Once again, we recommend you look at the forecast for some of your destinations in the days leading up to the trip.

Aircraft temperature:

All Australian Air Safaris aircraft are fitted with a comfortable leather interior and, during warmer months, air conditioning. Your pilot will provide a full briefing about the aircraft on your morning of departure.

Mobile phones

Generally mobile coverage in outback areas is limited. Telstra is the major carrier with coverage in most locations and it’s important to note that if your carrier is a Telstra reseller you might not have coverage in remote sites. If you require phone or data coverage while on tour we encourage you to purchase a pre-paid Telstra SIM card for the trip and also be prepared to be out of mobile coverage at some locations. WiFi access is limited and when available often the speeds are slower than in our capital cities.


Australian Air Safaris tours are all-inclusive and you will not be asked to pay anything further while you’re away. You may, however, wish to purchase souvenirs or alcoholic beverages when not sitting down to dinner and so we do recommend bringing a small amount of cash or a credit card to cover these additional purchases.

Bedding and towels

These are provided at all locations – you do not need to bring either.

Snacks and water

A variety of nibbles and bottled water are made available on the aircraft. We do encourage you to fill the water bottle we provide you with on the trip.
