Sydney to Bourke & Trilby Station

We look forward to welcoming you at Bankstown Airport, Sydney, as we prepare to depart on this unique flying safari exploring The Outback and its iconic pubs. We board our private aircraft flying west to Dubbo where we will stop briefly to refuel and stretch our legs. Back in the air we fly to the bush town of Bourke, where we enjoy a welcome lunch at the Port of Bourke pub.

Our next stop is the Outback town of Louth, on the Darling River. We take an Outback dirt track to Trilby Station, a family owned 320,000 acre sheep station. This overnight stop focuses on offering the true Australian Outback station experience, gaining insight into life on a remote sheep property. Immerse yourself in the landscape, appreciating a bush sunset with drinks and canapés. Over a home cooked dinner under the stars you will hear about life on the station from fifth generation farmers, The Murray Family.
