It was very memorable due to the fascinating flight with plenty of commentary from the pilots on what we were seeing from the air. In addition it was culturally interesting with the historical and Aboriginal sites visited. The landings at outback stations and towns was well received by our group and the overall experience was one to remember – a lifetime experience.
