Looking at the options of flying over the lake eyre region. Option 1 fly to Adelaide and do the 2 day staying overnight at Birdsville or option 2 (my preferred) drive to William Creek via Cameron's corner (coming from Tweed Heads) and then doing the flight with the local Wright air.
Anyone done either and opinions please.

Hi Colin M .There was a bit of info in this thread plus a link to Wright Air. No personal experience but Ruth d from Birdville speaks highly of them. Bob. 66532

Hi there. Years ago (early '90s) we did an Adelaide-based trip, not overnight, just up and back, with a stop and a ground tour at the Lake.
I will never forget it, partly because of the flight up and back, covering the full length of the Flinders at a level well below the normal commercial altitude- I could see all my old haunts - the Pound; Edeowie; up further to Arkaroola and the Northern Flinders - absolutely fantastic.That's not to say there aren't other attractions, doing the option you prefer.
Can I suggest it might boil down to striking your own balance between 'sight-seeing' versus 'being there'.
I usually go for 'being there', but the consolation prize of an Adelaide to Adelaide trip may not be too bad.
Hope it goes well.

I have flown from William Creek, well worth while.

They can get a bit of wind up there sometimes so you can't guarantee that you will be able to fly exactly when you want to. If you drive up you could stay over and fly first thing in the morning or last thing in the evening when it is often calm.
