Book by June 4, 2018, before seats dry up
The stunning, white, salt-encrusted lake edge and red sand dunes reflected in the water of Lake Eyre is something few people are lucky enough to witness.
But this year, heavier-than-normal rain in Queensland means guests have the opportunity to see a natural spectacle that occurs only every three years or so. While the area is spectacular even without water, when the rains start filling the largest salt water lake in the country, the landscape is transformed.
And best of all, book before June 4 and receive an early-bird discount off a trip that not only includes a flight over Lake Eyre – one of this country’s great natural wonders – but also takes adventurers to outback destinations such as Wilpena Pound, Cameron Corner and Tibooburra, just to name a few photo-worthy opportunities.
Couples can save more than $800 on new, five-day trips departing on May 29, June 19, July 3, July 17 and August 21 this year, offered by outback tourism company, Tri State Safaris.
Highlights of the trip include flying over the vast, salty expanse of Lake Eyre – the lowest point in Australia and home to breathtaking flocks of migratory birds, exploring the rugged bowl of Wilpena Pound, marvelling at the magnificent cliffs and gorges of the Flinders Ranges, and experiencing the true meaning of ‘remote’ at Tibooburra, NSW’s most-far-flung town.
If booked by June 4, the five-day Lake Eyre Tour is available from:
• Twin share: $3735 per person (save $415 per person or $830 per couple)
• Solo: $4018 (save $447)
• Seniors: $3547 per person twin share (save $395) or $3817 solo (save $425).
Fares include four nights’ accommodation, meals, guided sightseeing and travel in a comfortable, air-conditioned, fully kitted 4WD vehicle.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see the largest lake in Australia undergo a rare and sensational metamorphosis.
