Kati thanda / Lake Eyre trips - An outback (summer) adventure

Kati Thanda / Lake Eyre in summer? Am I joking?

This area can be fantastic in summer. Not for the faint hearted as it will likely be hot. You will have the place to yourself and if we score a thunderstorm there might be water laying for a short period of time. The Diamantina River feeds the Lake and it is already flowing (ok just a bit but it starts from a small flow) Coober Pedy has had its biggest rainfall in years early in February.

 Why not do something exciting and experience the real outback in its natural state...If its seriously hot - like 45-48' we'll delay our departure!

“It was a real thrill to fly over our farm and the North Grampians viewing all the landmarks. This was enhanced by the informative flight commentary. We thoroughly recommend a scenic flight with A Kube Aviation”

Lou & Jan Reichenbach – Glenlee Vic

Deserts, river systems, dinosaur fossils and outback characters with a yarn to tell. This trip with Kube Aviation had it all! If only Burke and Wills had been able to hitch a ride with Andy Kube. Thanks Andy for 4 days of Australian history, wildlife and stunning outback scenery. Andrea and Rohan

We felt safe at all times and have had one of the best days as a family. Thank you Andrew. We appreciate the way you do your job so much. We cannot recommend this highly enough.
