WHAT’S THIS ADVENTURE ABOUT?
We are targeting one of Australia’s iconic locations – Lake Eyre – Kati Thanda. Our goal is to photograph the incredible aerial abstract beauty of Australia’s largest lake, with 4 flights (over 8 hours) included in your package.
Not only do you get a great adventure, but our small group also gets to share this adventure with international creative legend Julieanne Kost.
Lake Eyre – Kati Thanda is amazing for its diversity of colours, patterns and landscapes. I first explored this region in the 1980’s. I wish I had this aerial opportunity back then! I can’t wait to take you on a true outback adventure. And I am happy to help with other suggested adventures in the region if you would like to explore further. Darran
We take the doors off your plane so you have uninterrupted views, but of course you belt up for safety.

ITINERARY – to adventure …
We suggest that you arrive a day earlier (at least) and over night in Coober Pedy. This is a great location to enjoy, and explore a true outback experience. We will suggest accommodation closer to the events departure.
DAY 1 – COOBER PEDY TO WILLIAM CREEK
We depart at 9am today from Coober Pedy in our 4WD’s, driving just over 2 hours to William Creek on the famous Oodnattata Track. This is will be our base for exploring Lake Eyre and the true outback. On arrival, a workshop with Julieanne and lunch. That afternoon, we take our first of four incredible flights over Lake Eyre (Kati Thanda). Our aim is to capture the incredible colours, shapes and patterns of this mystical landscape. All meals are included on this adventure.
Hotel Accommodation – (L,D)
DAY 2 WILLIAM CREEK/LAKE EYRE
Early rise for our second flight, this time targeting the southern section of Lake Eyre. Each location has different patterns, shapes and colours. Since your first workshop, you will visualise new results and capture fantastic creative images. On return, we offer another workshop around lunch. This workshop works in with our adventure this afternoon. Our third flight is shorter, but still beautiful as we explore the Painted Hills. This adventure includes time for aerial shoots, plus time on the ground to explore the colours of the hills. Quality time to capture great images is important. Plus we look at astro shoots!
Hotel Accommodation – (B,L,D)
DAY 3 WILLIAM CREEK/LAKE EYRE
We are targeting arguably the very best region of Lake Eyre for photographers this morning. Lake Eyre ‘North’, offers landscapes that are rare to our planet. We target the amazing Warburton Channel with it’s dendrite like patterns and spectacular Neales Delta. This is where the waters leach down from Queensland, flowing inland instead of to the sea. Imagine flying over 3 fabulous hours, filling cards and because we work directly with the pilots, we can adjust our angles to get the best results.
