Scenic Flights in Australia

Scenic Flights In AustraliaGiven the sheer scale and remoteness of many locations in Australia, seeing the country by air makes a good deal of sense and offers an unforgettable experience, and there are dozens of options to choose from.

Sydney Harbour looks stunning from the ground and even more spectacular when stood at the top of Sydney Harbour Bridge, so just imagine the views from the air. There are numerous scenic flights in Australia that take in the country’s most famous harbour.

Lake Eyre, the country’s biggest body of water, is among the most popular destinations for scenic flights in Australia. A typical tour includes a pass over sections of the lake as well as a look at Anna Creek Station, a huge working cattle ranch, the border fence, the longest fence in the world, and a host of other not-to-be-missed sights. What makes this flight extra special is the take-off and landing from the small town of William Creek. Most planes that fly from here taxi down the town’s main street, and there are even traffic signs warning cars of aircraft!

For many visitors to Australia, the majestic Ayers Rock seems like a long haul from the most popular urban centres of Sydney, Melbourne and Cairns, but a flight over this national monument is a convenient way to see this stunningly beautiful area. Companies offering scenic flights in Australia often do package tours that take in multiple destinations, with Ayers Rock taking pride of place as the main event.
