Full description
Are you ready for the pub crawl of a lifetime? Departing Cairns Airport, you'll take to the skies to arrive in absolute style at two of the most scenic watering holes in the Atherton Tablelands. Start your epic afternoon out with stunning bird's-eye views of Cairns City as you fly towards Walsh's Pyramid, the highest freestanding natural pyramid in the world. The first stop of the day is the Mountain View Hotel, a quintessential country pub situated on Gillies Highway at the start of the range. This classic Queenslander Pub will have you feeling relaxed as you spend an hour sipping a cold one (or two!) on their riverside deck.

Up next, it's time to hop back in the chopper where your expert pilot will fly you across the impressive Gillies Range before soaring over Copperlode Dam, an oasis of freshwater and rainwater. You'll want to have your cameras ready for an exhilarating landing at pub number two, The Billabong in Kuranda. Nestled among pristine tropical rainforest, it'll be hard to leave the expansive timber deck overlooking the water and eucalyptus woodlands.

After some delicious food and drinks, strap yourself in again and feel on cloud nine as you pass over the breathtaking Barron Gorge and its tumbling waterfalls on your way back to Cairns. End the tour with VIP car transfers to your choice of Cairns' finest drinking establishments. Bottoms up!
