Reef OR Rainforest Discovery | 30 Minutes Scenic Helicopter Flight | GBR

Experience flying with Australia’s best. Enjoy the exhilaration of flying over one of the 10 wonders of the world — The Great Barrier Reef. Experience the Great Barrier Reef’s magnitude with a 30 minute helicopter flight from Cairns. The sapphire blue waters that surround the reefs are teeming with marine life that may be seen from these low level scenic flights. Capture the beauty of this natural wonder with uninterrupted views from your helicopter’s windows. Circumnavigate around Green Island and its surrounding reef systems whilst witnessing the colour changes within the pristine lagoons and around the naturally formed coral cays. An absolute must during a visit to Far North Queensland. The other 30 minute option is to fly over world heritage listed tropical Rainforest. Breathtaking views of the Barron Gorge and falls, the luscious dense rainforest covering the surrounding mountain ranges and the pristine coastal beaches can all be witnessed from the comfort of the GBR Helicopter. On both scenic flights enjoy an informative local commentary from your experienced pilot as you soar over the towering ancient forests that are native to the Far North Queensland region. Just don’t forget your camera!
