At 9am depart Brisbane and fly over the Darling Downs agricultural farmlands and into St. George, a rural service centre which is located on the Balonne River and provides services to the surrounding wheat, sheep and cotton farmers, and, in recent times, fruits, grapes, vegetables and beef have enriched the local economy.

After lunch reboard your plane and headonto Birdsville flying over the Warrego, Paroo & Bulloo Rivers, Cooper Creek and the Diamantina River before landing in Birdsville and taking a short walk across the road to the iconic Birdsville Hotel. Late this afternoon, you’ll round off your day with a tour out to Big Red, where you’ll stand in awe as you gaze out towards the Simpson Desert, whilst watching the sunset and enjoying a cold drink with hand selected platters. There’ll be endless photographic opportunities, and views across to The Nemesis, the challenging neighbour of Big Red, these 2 dunes are said to be the biggest of the approximately 1200 dunes of the Simpson Desert…they are also the World’s longest parallel dunes!
