Nature treats us to a magical experience around every four years—the dreamy hues and glistening water of Lake Eyre is currently flourishing due to heavy seasonal rains flowing in from a network of regional channels, streams, and floodplains. To celebrate this rare occurrence, we are offering two extraordinary small group expedition tours, taking guests straight to the source via land and air.
Luke Walker, Executive General Manager for Outback Spirit, said the rains have afforded travellers with an incredible opportunity.
“The ability to witness this breathtaking spectacle and the abundance of wildlife it brings is something not to be missed. Which is why we’ve created two incredible itineraries so guests can experience this phenomenon from a variety of perspectives—above and on land.”
Formed approximately 200 million years ago, and at 144km long and 77km wide, Australia’s biggest salt lake is filling with water, which is flowing in from regional areas, converging in Kati Thanda – Lake Eyre National Park, creating the perfect opportunity to see this area of the country in a way few have experienced.
Outback Spirit is offering two premium, intimate small group adventures of up to 26 people maximum via five-star, all terrain Mercedes-Benz luxury coaches and modern turbine aircraft with expert two-person crew of tour driver, and tour director, with all meals including breakfasts, lunches and dinners included.
