Full description
Experience a unique helicopter tour of the Great Barrier Reef and the North Queensland coastline on this 30-minute flight. From the air the reef really comes to life, as does the entire coastline.

Depart Fort Douglas, ascending over the city of Cairns and soaring along the rainforest coastline past False Cape over to Green Island – the jewel of the sea.

Marvel at the incredible colors and formations of the reef below the sun-kissed Coral Sea. Have your camera at the ready, as these are sights that you’ll want to revisit at a later time!

See Trinity Inlet, False Cape, Mission Bay, Green Island, Arlington Reef, Upolo/Middle Cays, and more.
