A&K launches Australian indigenous air tour
Abercrombie & Kent has launched an Australian Indigenous Air Safari, a 15 night journey travelling from Queensland to the Northern Territory to South Australia, all by charter plane.
It begins with a private jet flight from Brisbane, to Laura, home to the largest collection of prehistoric rock art.
This is the only place where you can see Quinkan Rock Art – there are more than 10,000 sites – and UNESCO lists Laura as one of the world’s most important rock art sites.
On a tour here, a Kuku-Yalanji guide introduces guests to the ‘Magnificent Galley’: a 20,000-year-old outback museum packed with diverse pieces of art.
Guests stay at Jarramali Camp, deep in the outback on traditional land and will be treated to a personal audience with songkeeper Jessie Lloyd – a talented Aboriginal singer, cultural ambassador and founder of the award-winning Mission Songs Project.
The discoveries continue in Cape York, flying over spectacular reefs, rainforest and red outback landscapes.
Cape York is the northernmost tip of Australia.
At Cape York, there’s also the opportunity to visit World War II wreckages, Aboriginal homesteads and pearl diving sites.
Guest stay at Banubanu Beach Retreat in the northeast corner of Arnhem Land – very few people travel to this corner of the country, so the beaches are unspoilt.
The trip continues to the Northern Territory to stay at the famed Bamurru Plains, UNESCO World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park and to Ayers Rock Resort, to view iconic Uluru.
The final stop is Kangaroo Island, South Australia, one the country’s most important wildlife havens.
