Optional Upgrade – Coober Pedy: Painted Hills & Lake Eyre Scenic Flight

The Anna Creek Painted Hills is a spectacular and recently discovered section of the beautiful Breakaways country in the far north of South Australia. Travelling from Coober Pedy Airport, the area can only be accessed by air due to its fragility and natural beauty, and guests fly over the dramatic landscape to see it in all its glory.

Continue flying over Kati Thanda – Lake Eyre, Australia’s largest salt lake. A seemingly endless expanse that stretches an impressive 144 by 77 kilometres of shimmering salt crystals of pink and orange, which are captivating whether full of water or totally dry. 

Stop at William Creek for a quintessential Australian pub lunch at the famous William Creek Hotel, followed by a guided ground tour of the township. Fly over Anna Creek Cattle Station, the world’s largest working cattle station, for the final sector of this experience as you circle back to Coober Pedy before re-joining the rest of The Ghan at Manguri for drinks by a bonfire.

The Painted Hills and Lake Eyre Scenic Flight experience offers a day of unmatched beauty where the vibrant colours of the Outback are truly on display.
