- All-inclusive four-day aircruising adventure of the Australian outback
- September 2021
- Save $1000 on a booking for four people
A spectacular opera production at Uluru, the famous Dingo Fence, the underground town of Cooper Pedy, the mysterious etching of Marree Man, vast deserts and the giant salt lake of Lake Eyre are among the iconic outback destinations featured in an exclusive, new, four-day aircruising adventure launched by Cruise Express.
Tapping surging interest in tours of Australia at this time, the all-inclusive ‘Opera in the Outback Air Adventure’ will take 44 guests on a spectacular flightseeing tour embracing desert destinations in three States plus the Northern Territory aboard a private ATR72-500 twin-prop aircraft. Bookings made for four people will save $1000 per group.
Covering vast distances and far-flung corners of Australia in just four days – compared to weeks by car – the air tour will start in Melbourne on September 16, 2021, with interstate guests able to add on flight connections from other cities.
The fully escorted tour begins when the modern, spacious aircraft, configured for 68 passengers, takes off with just 44 travellers, allowing extra space onboard, with the first destination the NSW outback town of Broken Hill where many films such as ‘Priscilla Queen of the Desert’ were filmed. After a local sightseeing tour, the journey continues with a scenic desert flight over the mysterious, giant, modern-day etching of Marree Man, the endless dunes of Australia’s biggest deserts and the vast expanse of Lake Eyre as well as previews from the air of Uluru and Kata Tjuta.
A night at the Desert Cave Hotel in Cooper Pedy follows with an underground dinner and a local tour next day taking in the famous Dingo Fence – one of the longest structures in the world stretching for 5600km – and the stark Moon Plains surrounding the rustic opal mining town. Guests then reboard the plane bound for a two-night stay at the deluxe Sails in the Desert Hotel at Uluru, with guests enjoying an unforgettable Sounds of Silence gourmet dinner under the stars against the silhouette of Uluru.
Next day there are walks and close-up tours of Uluru and Kata Tjuta before the highlight of the tour unfolds with a spine-tingling outdoor concert performed by some of Opera Australia’s finest singers amongst the stunning colours of the Field of Light installation and backed by a chamber orchestra. The final day sees the tour head for the QLD outback town of Longreach for a visit to the popular Qantas Founders Museum before the flight back to Melbourne.
Including all meals, drinks with dinner and onboard flights, refreshments on the plane, accommodation and land touring, the four-day tour is available from $6490 per person, twin-share. Bookings made for four people can save $1000 per group or $250 each.
