Painted Hills Road Trip - Fully Accommodated (6 days)

16 - 21 September 2018

NATURETOURISMCERTnewIn July 2018 Vic Widman was invited by Trevor Wright from Wrights Air in WIlliam Creek to join him on a flying trip to the Anna Creek Painted Hills. What Vic saw during the flight and ground tour simply amazed him and heard him describe the area as like nothing he had ever seen in all his years of outback travel. Vic made a vow that he had to share this beautiful and possibly unique area with his customers. So on his return to Sydney he immediately started planning both a road trip and a flying trip out to this incredible location. The road trip is designed for every four wheel drive adventurer amongst us. It includes accommodation and dinner along the way so even if you are not into camping you will get the chance to see what might one day become as large an attraction as the Bungle Bungles or perhaps even Uluru.

Whilst at William Creek we have allowed time for you to enjoy a scenic flight over Lake Eyre, or indulge in the latest "must do" trip which is a plane flight and landing in the extraordinary Painted Hills. This area has only had land access via plane since mid 2018, and has been considered by some to be more spectacular than the Bungle Bungles. This is an optional tour. Then we continue to Coober Pedy in the afternoon for our last night together in an underground room.

Tour fee includes mechanical support, satellite telephone support, tyre repair in remote areas, Painted Hills exclusive air and ground tour for two people at William Creek, accommodation for each night at Menindee, Hawker, Marree, William Creek, Coober Pedy and Port Augusta, dinner bed & breakfast each day and all National Park entry fees.
