Afterwards, enjoy a pub lunch at William Creek and then board an included scenic flight over Kati Thanda–Lake Eyre, where you will be able to gain a bird’s-eye view and true appreciation of this magnificent sight, especially after rare rainfall that has occurred recently.

You will fly over an amazing area where, prior to entering Lake Eyre, The Warburton Creek opens up to a plain that resembles a birdlife filled playground when the area has seen recent flooding.
