Half Day Lake Eyre and Painted Hills Flight from Coober Pedy
Depart Coober Pedy for the Warburton Groove, over the Davenport Ranges, Kidman's Anna Creek Cattle station to the top of Lake Eyre North. After exceptional rain in Queensland, combined with more local drought breaking conditions, the Warburton floods onto Lake Eyre toward Belt Bay, the lowest geographical point in Australia.
Hughes Island is also a feature, being the protected breeding ground for pelicans and other birdlife. This vast, luminous salt landscape transforms with water that then reflects colours and patterns which are only seen from the air.
A stopover in William Creek for a drink/food is included. William Creek was once on the Old Ghan rail and a station for the Overland Telegraph. It is then just over 40 minutes return to Coober Pedy and finally the Opal Field Lunarscape. Allow time away of approximately four hours with the pre-flight briefing and stopover. Flight time is two hours and 45 minutes.
