Day 1 Lake Mungo Board the Outback Jet and in just over one hour you will be touching down on the remote dirt runway at Lake Mungo. Once upon a time, this was a permanent water source, rich with life including mega fauna such as diprotodon (the largest known marsupial to have ever lived). It was also a major habitation site for the aboriginal people. It was here that 'Mungo Man' was discovered - human remains that date back a staggering 60,000 years. 
Enjoy a private tour here before retiring to your accommodation for the night.

Accommodation  Mungo Lodge

Day 2 Arkaroola This afternoon enjoy the guided 4WD Ridgetop tour up to Siller's Lookout over the northern ranges, fringed by the deserts. Tonight go star gazing and take a tour of the galaxy with the professional quality, high powered astronomical telescopes at Arkaroola's very own observatory.

Accommodation  Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary

Day 3 Prairie Hotel Air Adventure has a long standing relationship with the Prairie Hotel and they always enjoy welcoming Air Adventure guests. Your host, Ross Fargher,  a fourth generation grazier and co-owner of the Prairie Hotel, will give you great insight into the history and modern day life in this picturesque region between the ranges and the desert. They have also carved out a reputation for their unique outback 'feral' cuisine and you will have the opportunity to sample it yourself. 

Today you will be driven through the spectacular 'geological corridor through time' Brachina Gorge and spot the elusive yellow-footed rock wallaby.

Accommodation  Prairie Hotel

Day 4  Parachilna - Gawler Ranges Depart the Prairie Hotel and enjoy a scenic flight over Wilpena Pound on your way to Mt Ive Station. Meet Gawler Ranges Safari Tours and explore Lake Gairdner, which is like a piece of Antartica, with its glistening white salt pan set in the red landscape. Here you can walk on the surface of the lake and look north to see the endless white plain and the striking surrounds and islands. The red dunes along the lake yield many animal tracks, flowers in spring, interesting vegetation and birds. Then enjoy sunset drinks at Sturt's Lake.

Accommodation  Kangaluna Camp

Day 5 Gawler Ranges This morning allows a leisurely walk in the Corrobinnie Valley over the fascinating coloured rocks. Drive a sandy track through the bush to Yandinga Valley where cigar shaped rock formations can be seen, which are 1,600 million years old, the magnificent Organ Pipes Amphitheatre and lots of wildlife. In the afternoon we travel back to Kangaluna Camp for sunset drinks.

Accommodation  Kangaluna Camp

Day 6 Baird Bay - Streaky Bay - Melbourne Head to Baird Bay where we will board a boat for an unforgettable wildlife experience. On the 5km journey to a lagoon at Jones Island near Cape Radstock (at 160 metres, it is one of the highest sheer points on the southern coat of Australia) you can watch Bottlenose dolphins ride the bow wave of the boat and join these magnificent mammals in shallow water. Then visit a colony of rare Australian sea lions and experience playing face to face with these agile and friendly mammals as we wade in protected shallow lagoons. Then enjoy a fresh seafood lunch at Streaky Bay before rejoining  the Outback Jet for your return flight to Melbourne.
