I agree with the comments below that the views from the plane are only good if seated on the right of each row. We had the impression that all the good seats were for those in tour groups, presumably because Aviair had long standing relationships with those tour operators. For those who are not in organised tours you'd be best... More

Be aware that there are many options for helicopter and aeroplane flights around Purnululu. Our flight with Aviair was well run and the plane was piloted by a friendly and knowledgeable pilot. What they didn't tell us however is that the views overwhelmingly favour those on the right hand side of the plane. This was because of the design of... More

Amazing scenery from the air I just wished the passengers changed seats on the return flight to give us a different view, from where I sat on the left side I saw mostly the edges of the Lake Argyle and the Bungle Bungles, the right side got more of the central views. The walk to the domes and lunch at... More

From the moment we were picked , to the end of an inspiring day, the experience and service from all the crew was outstanding. The flights to and fro were memorable, the attention to detail was brilliant. My Wife and I are more than keen to return. Thanks again Team. Sarge.

Absolutely fabulous! We were all very excited leading up to this flight, esp the kids (5 & 8 yo) and the experience did not disappoint. We opted for the 42min 'Long Look' flight and I'm so pleased we did. Our pilot Cameron was friendly and informative, there was a good safety briefing from the ground staff and the Bungle Bungle...

It is almost impossible to describe the beauty of this part of Australia. From the air the beauty becomes almost breathtaking. The passion and knowledge that the team from Slingair have for this region, their home, is obvious. A truly memorable experience. A big ticket item for anyone's bucket list!

Can only say our flight over the bungle bugles was nothing short of amazing and a real education about a really amazing part of this land. Tom the pilot was an absolute gentleman and his commentary really made the trip what it was. Nothing negative to say at all and we're still buzzing.

Although a different airline turned out to be my transfer from Kununurra to/from Purnululu NP in early May, 2014, while there on the first afternoon I did take the 30-minute helicoptor flight over the Bungles.

The fixed wing flight over the Bungle Bungles, Lake Argyle and the Argyle Diamond Mine was fantastic. To see this area from the air showed just how vast it is.
