NOW is your chance to see Lake Eyre - complete with water.

The stunning white, salt-encrusted lake edge and red sand dunes reflected in the water is something few people are lucky enough to see.

This year, heavier-than-normal rain in Queensland means there's the chance to see a natural spectacle that occurs only every three years or so. While the area is spectacular even when dry, when water enters the largest saltwater lake in the country, the landscape is completely transformed.

Anyone who books on one of five Tri-State Safaris five-day Lake Eyre tours before June 4 will receive an early-bird discount. The trip includes a flight over Lake Eyre and also takes you to outback destinations such as Wilpena Pound, Cameron Corner and Tibooburra.

Couples can save more than $800 on the tours departing May 29, June 19, July 3, July 17 and August 21 this year.

The cost for seniors who book before June 4 is $3547 per person twin share (save $395 per person) or $3817 solo (save $425).

This includes four nights' accommodation, meals, guided sightseeing and travel in an air-conditioned, fully kitted out 4WD vehicle.
