Customer Reviews


Feedback from our travellers

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. "
"The tour provides an excellent overview of a cross section of Outback Australia. A great use of time to see and enjoy so much! "
"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."
"Bring your smile and shake off any pretentious ideas , go and meet some real people and see the amazing outback . "
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."
