Testimonials from our Guests

Jill Deering
"Amazing Outback Trip. The Pub Crawl was a fabulous 5 day trip. It was amazing to see so many outback places in very remote areas on the ground and in the air which included - classic outback pubs, fascinating locals and remarkable outback Australian landscapes from Birdsville to Bourke, with a great crew that had local knowledge. Cant wait to do my next trip!"
Ian Anderson
"The best holiday of my life. From the preflight discussion to the very end of the tour, this tour had everything. It was perfectly organised, with great quality food, accommodation and tours. Phil and Matt, the pilots were absolutely magnificent. Everything is covered and organised and the pace is easy and comfortable. The trip had so much more content than what was listed in their brochure. We laughed for 6 days straight."
Fiona Robertson

"An amazing way to see the Outback, flying low enough to see the country in all its different forms, from the Flinders Ranges, Lake Eyre, across the Channel Country and the Simpson Desert. We had time to experience the surreal beauty of The Painted Hills, the silent expanse of the Big Red sand dune, and the night sky at Uluru. A true highlight was meeting the locals at William Creek, Birdsville, and Trilby Station. Outback hospitality, second to none!"
Susan Elliott - Travel Writer
"In my 25 years as a producer for Channel Seven's holiday program "Sydney Weekender" there have been hundreds of memorable trips. However my recent adventure with Outback By Air is 'up there' as unforgettable. With flight travel a treasured luxury these days it was a real treat to fly around Australia in a beautiful private plane without the stress of check-in counters, crowds and baggage carousels. I believe it really is the best way to see our country. What you see in a few days could take weeks by road and the aerial perspective is unbelievable - our “land of sweeping plains” is anything but plain!"
Andrew McIntire
"Such an amazing way to see our country. We have such a diverse range of ecologies from the Mountains, vast plains and the sandy outback, which all can be viewed & experienced when travelling by Air. This trip will be a holiday I will remember forever."
Mariette Hanekom
"The tour was amazing, we did not want to leave. Trilby Station was fantastic with Liz and her energetic hospitality - we are definitely going back. The whole trip was magic! An experience I will treasure for a lifetime. "
"This air tour was the best way to see Australia both by air and road. You get to see so much in multiple states. Stopping in small outback towns and mixing with the locals is a real buzz and the pubs are a eye opener that will never be forgotten."
Gold Coast
"Fantastic experience. A real one of a kind that I’m still reliving days after I’m back."
"I must compliment our two wonderful and incredibly patient and so professional pilots, who went out of their way to make us feel relaxed and comfortable."
