GET IN QUICK TO SEE LARGE LAKE
TRAVELLERS ARE being encouraged to visit one of Australia’s natural phenomena now before weather conditions change.
Designer Journeys have launched a new tour to view Kati Thanda–Lake Eyre in flood.
The five-day tour includes a flight over the lake to view the spectacle from the air, as well as luxury safari tent accommodation in the Ikara-Flinders Ranges, a stay at the Prairie Outback Hotel in Parachilna and a fossil tour with a local expert.
“We are excited to be able to provide bespoke experiences for travellers to be able to see this natural phenomenon,” said Matt McCann, CEO of Designer Journeys.
“The flooding in Kati Thanda–Lake Eyre is a rare and spectacular event, and we want to make sure that travellers have the opportunity to experience it in the best possible way.
“This may be the last opportunity for a while, as Australia is transitioning from La Nina to El Nino, which is expected to bring dry conditions to the region.”
Departing from Adelaide, the tour takes in Wilpena Pound, an ancient meeting place surrounded by mountain ranges. A scenic flight over the South Australian outback is also included, along with an exploration of the geologically impressive Flinders Ranges.
