It’s one of the best ways to get a real sense of place and the scenery is spectacular. An outback air safari provides an all encompassing view of the topology of the ranges, particularly Wilpena Pound, and is an easy way to experience the massive salt pans of Lake Torrens to the west of the ranges. Whether it’s a heli tour of Wilpena Pound or a day trip in small aircraft flight to Lake Eyre, this opportunity is not to be missed.
