Heli-Outback Experience

Soar with the spirits over Wilpena Pound along the ancient ramparts of the Ikara-Flinders Ranges. Allow your sense of freedom to take over as you pass Rawnsley Bluff, down the spine of Wilpena Pound, weaving amongst the cliffs of the incredible Heysen Range, exit the ranges through Brachina Gorge and let the vastness of Lake Torrens and the outback stretch out in front of you.

Touch down at one of Australia’s iconic outback pubs, the Prairie Hotel in Parachilna, for a platter of ‘feral food’ (or something else that takes your fancy). You’re back in the helicopter for round two tracking south along the old railway and through Edeowie Gorge, around St Mary’s Peak before returning west along Arkaba’s spectacular Elder Range. Get your last bird’s eye view of Arkaba’s folded landscape, spotting wildlife from the air before landing back on Arkaba in time to head out for a sundowner drink on top of the ranges. 

$1,250 per person operating with a minimum 2, maximum 3 guests. This is a 3 hour experience with 1 hour flying time. Minimum three night stay at Arkaba.
