Following the extraordinary rainfall events in western Queensland, Birdsville has experienced one of its biggest floods in decades, currently cut by road with residents living a ‘desert island existence’ due to the huge volume of water moving down the Diamantina River into the Channel Country. Innamincka residents have also welcomed the floodwaters filling waterholes along the way to the wetlands of the Cooper Creek, Coongie Lakes, a significant breeding ground for water birds.
The Prairie Hotel has been able to confirm the services of local pilot & pastoralist, Ian Fargher who is currently enduring drought himself in the Flinders Ranges. Ian will welcome the diversion to share with passengers his vast local knowledge & experiences gained through his life in the region as a 4th generation local pastoralist.
The Prairie Hotel’s private charter package provides an opportunity to view the enormity of the Queensland floodwaters as they move through the Channel Country into South Australian catchment areas.
