Lake Eyre Outback Australia tour

We've just returned from our most recent holiday - a light plane tour of outback Australia, specifically to see Lake Eyre, which is a massive inland lake that only has water in it once every 30 years or so.

This is a map of the Lake Eyre basin so you can see how big it is.
We travelled with a company called Kirkhope Aviation, in a Piper Chieftan plane which seats 10 people in total.  There were five others on our trip, and our pilot/tourguide Tony.  If you ever get the chance to travel to this part of Australia, I highly recommend travelling with Kirkhope, as they were wonderful.

I've broken these posts up into actual places stayed or visited, to make it easier to follow.  They are in the order visited.
