Big Red & Diamantina River

A short flight great for those that want to get a taste of how the vast Australian outback looks from the air. A truly different perspective.

From Birdsville, we make our way over the racecourse and the town before tracking west over Adria Downs station to Big Red, one of the tallest sand dunes in the desert. From Big Red, we make our way across the Channel Country to Pandie Pandie station – a local operating cattle station right on the banks of the Diamantina River. Following the Diamantina River back to Birdsville, where we circle the town once more before landing.
