Lake Eyre Flights with Lake Eyre Helicopters – Discovery Tour

Departing Marree, we head the Cooper Creek crossing on the world famous Birdsville Track before catching up with Phil and Pam at Mungeraine Roadhouse for morning tea. Heading East mostly along the Cooper in flood we arrive at Innamincka for lunch. After a tasty lunch and maybe a cool drink, we head for Birdsville. Staying the night in this legendary outback pub will be one of those memories that lasts a lifetime, long after the price is forgotten.


After breakfast the next day we will overfly the Goyder Lagoon with magical arteries of bright greens and yellows and carpet grasslands stemming out from the Diamantina River. From here it is onto Cowrie Station, where you will meet the locals who run this million acre cattle station, before heading off with the station owner to discover the magic of the Warburton Creek and the surrounding dunes. Boarding your private helicopter again, it’s time to follow the Warburton to where it enters Lake Eyre.


We will track the entire length of the Lake before departing Lake Eyre North via Belt Bay and then onto Lake Eyre South, before returning to Marree. Total flight time will be around 7 hrs. The price which includes 2 x lunches with breakfast and diner at The Birdsville Hotel.
