At a glance:

Part 1:

Departing Esperance airport aboard your modern aircraft, with a window seat for every passenger, the flight will begin with a short transit over some of Australia’s most productive Broadacre Arable land, to the Esperance town and Port. Flying across Esperance Bay past Frenchman’s Peak and over the Cape Le Grand National Park, you will be struck by the stunning beauty of the region.  Certified by Geoscience Australia, Lucky Bay boasts the whitest sand in Australia. Contrasted with the stunningly clear Turquoise waters, you can see every reef, sandbar, shark, and even whales between July and October.

Your flight will continue onward through the Recherche Archipelago to the unique Middle Island with its world renowned Pink Lake Hillier. The vibrant colour of the lake is permanent, and does not alter even when the water is taken in a container. The pink colour is considered to be due to the presence of the organism Dunaliella salina.
From Middle Island and Lake Hillier, you will return to Esperance Airport via more spectacular scenery and stunning coastal vistas. Standard departure times are 9:00am, 11:30am and 2:00pm. The flight lasts approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes.

  • We recommend doing the flight and boat cruise on separate days, but if you want to do them both on the same day, please select the 2pm Scenic Flight time when booking.
