South Australia’s rugged landscapes, pristine beaches and world famous wine regions will be even easier for Victorians to access with the launch of three new luxury Air Adventure Australia air safaris.
Departing from Melbourne, the new itineraries explore South Australia’s famed regions including the Barossa, Clare Valley, Kangaroo Island, Limestone Coast and the Flinders Ranges.
The State Government has provided $35,000 to help get the project off the ground through its New Product Support Program for the tourism industry.
Tourism Minister, Leon Bignell, said the air safaris are an exciting addition.
“By providing direct access from Melbourne the tours will encourage Victorian visitors to experience the wonders of regional South Australia,” Mr Bignell said.
“The New Product Support Program is designed to support new tourism experiences that promote a different aspect of our state.
“The introduction of Air Adventure Australia’s three new luxury air safaris is a great way of discovering some of our most beautiful regions.”
The eleven seat luxury aircraft takes less than 90 minutes for the journey from Melbourne to Kangaroo Island.
Air Adventure Australia Managing Director John Dyer says South Australia is an ideal destination for air safaris.
“I see South Australia as a state that has the lot, including amazing food and wine, outback landscapes and incredible coastline,” Mr Dyer said.
“Our tours make the South Australian outback very accessible to both tourists using Melbourne as a gateway city and people living on the eastern seaboard.”
‘The Gourmet Getaway’ and ‘Luxury Lodges of South Australia’ tours visit some of the state’s iconic properties including the Prairie Hotel, the Kingsford Homestead, the Louise, Southern
Ocean Lodge, and Arkaba Station.
Visitors can also experience the exclusive Mayura Station Wagyu Masterclass in a one day tour of the Coonawarra region.
Air Adventure Australia’s new air safaris range from 1-6 days with each itinerary offered twice a year.
