Experience the wonder of Cairns and Tropical North Queensland from the sky. If you’re the kind of traveller who loves seeing the world from a different perspective, or the type of person who loves flying above a landscape, one of the best places to take a helicopter tour is in Queensland.
Viewing the Great Barrier Reef from the seat of a helicopter is no longer the only helicopter trip available in Tropical North Queensland.
In recent times, flight-touring around Cairns has soared to new heights, with the region’s helicopter operators coming up with creative touring menus that show off the area’s other attributes.
From landing at a mountain retreat for a blissful hot stone massage to touching down for a romantic champagne breakfast on a secluded sand cay, helicopter flights are a great way to experience the area around Cairns.
You can fly to a remote part of the Outback and land near a waterhole, then jump out and spend the day cooling down in a billabong.
For remote wilderness adventures, there are helicopter tours that take you to remote outback pubs, wildlife-watching, sleeping under the stars and landings at remote sections of the Great Barrier Reef.
Of course, landing on a pontoon in the vicinity of the Great Barrier Reef has got to be a bucket list experience most people would love to do.
If you’re looking for more to do in Queensland what about exploring the Gold Coast, which has plenty of cafes, beaches and wildlife. The Gold Coast is an exciting destination south of Brisbane, Queensland’s capital. North of Brisbane lies the Sunshine Coast, which is nowhere near as busy as the Gold Coast. The Sunshine Coast is a pristine beach destination perfect for a quintessential family beach holiday.
Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef can be explored without getting wet at the aquarium in Cairns.
