Outback Airtours

Outback Airtours provide the opportunity for city and regional folk to view and become a part of the amazing outback legend. Their itineraries have been designed to allow guests to enjoy the atmosphere and ambience of Outback Australia at a leisurely pace, meet some of its characters and view the immense panorama from a comfortable aerial platform.

Sufficient time is allowed on the two and three day tours for their guests to explore areas of their own interest.

Outback Airtours only operate from April to October. Accommodation on the tours is air-conditioned and the standard of meals often exceeds that found in city areas.
