Lake Eyre 4WD Tours – Adelaide to Coober Pedy
Today we will pick you up from your Adelaide city hotel and travel along the Explorer Highway to Coober Pedy. Our journey takes us through the towns of Port Wakefield and Port Augusta. A stop at Lochiel’s pink salt lake can not be missed. Enjoy a picnic lunch at Woomera and walk among the rockets and planes. Lake Hart and Glendambo are our final stops on route to Coober Pedy. Coober Pedy was once just a rocky, dusty desert plain and is now the opal mining capital of the world. We will check into our underground accommodation and join back for a delicious dinner. (Day 1 Lunch, Dinner, The Lookout Cave Coober Pedy overnight)
Coober Pedy to William Creek
Coober Pedy is a very bizarre town and we start the day with an opal mine tour and learn about this beautiful gem stone. Look at some spectacular examples before our drive to the colourful Breakaways. After lunch we travel to South Australia’s smallest town William Creek. We arrive mid afternoon with plenty of time to check out this remote and unique area. Relax and unwind in your en-suited cabin or join the locals for an ice cold beer before our dinner. (Day 2 Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, William Creek En-suited Cabins overnight)
Lake Eyre and the Painted Hills Scenic Flight with remote Landing, Walk on South Lake Eyre
This morning we take our stunning scenic flight over Lake Eyre. Our special two hour flight will take you over Lake Eyre and the Painted Hills. These must-see sandstone hills are set in the outback of South Australia and can only be reached by air. We have permission to land and explore this very unique and spectacular landmark on the ground. After an unforgettable early morning flight we drive along the Oodnadatta Track to South Lake Eyre. Walk to the edge of the lake or enjoy the views from the information bay. Be amazed by the endless horizon and witness the vast inland, loneliness and incredible nature.
Then it is time to make our way to Marree. Learn about Sir Sidney Kidman and the history of the many displays here. Not too many people are listed as one of their town’s visitor attractions. But then Talc Alf is a one off, a quirky and engaging outback character who has achieved near icon status along the Oodnadatta Track. Over the past 40 years he has created an outside gallery in Lyndhurst and we will view some of Alf’s unique talc carvings. Our final stretch take us to Leigh Creek for a comfortable overnight stay. (Day 3 Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Leigh Creek Outback Resort overnight)
Travel through Country Towns and Clare Valley back to Adelaide
Our final day has arrived and we take the scenic route back to Adelaide. We drive south through the country towns of Hawker, Eurelia and Oororoo. After a delicious cafe lunch in Spalding, we take you to the beautiful Clare Valley one of the oldest wine regions in Australia. Enjoy a delicious wine tasting at one of the cellar doors. We are now on the home stretch to Adelaide and our fabulous Lake Eyre Outback Tour is coming to an end. Arrive back in Adelaide by 5.30 pm. (Day 4 Breakfast, Lunch)
