Over recent months, rainfall in the Northern Territory, Queensland and South Australia has led to an influx of water into the usually dry and barren inland sea, transforming Lake Eyre into a desert oasis, flourishing with life. Due to its remote location and unpredictable nature, this truly is a once-in-a-lifetime moment to experience.
To take advantage of this rare phenomenon, APT has released a new seven-day Lake Eyre and Flinders Ranges journey. Travel in complete comfort aboard a custom-built 4WD vehicle and stay in a range of hand-picked accommodation, including two nights in luxury safari-style tents at the Wilpena Pound Resort.
Covering thousands of hectares, Lake Eyre takes on a pink hue as it floods, thanks to the developing presence of algae, while freshwater fish and a vast array of birdlife (including white pelicans) begin to thrive. See this natural masterpiece spring to life with Poached-egg Daisies and Sturt Desert Peas in full bloom.
APT’s seven-day Lake Eyre and Flinders Ranges trip includes all meals, the services of an expert Driver-Guide and a range of APT Signature Experiences, including a scenic flight over Kati Thanda (Lake Eyre). Walk on the dazzling salt flats of Lake Eyre South, traverse the iconic Oodnadatta Track and become immersed in the incredible scenery of the Flinders Ranges.
Prices start at $3,995 per person twin share, including savings of up to $500 per person, with multiple departures running from 29 March until late May 2019.
