What a fabulous way to see Oz. Travelling at 10,000 feet or below you get such a wonderful view of the countryside. It was truly memorable. We are so fortunate to live in such a scenic and wonderfully diverse country.

Excellent trip with charming pilot / tour leader; we covered an amazing amount of ground in 4 days. A highlight was the visit to the working station on Lake Eyre, and the low flight over the lake itself
