Full description
30-Minute Scenic Flight – Magnetic Island Rise above the waters of the Coral Sea and take in the scenery of Cleveland Bay and Magnetic Island. Watch as rugged cliffs give way to the island’s dense National Park rainforests and blend into the stunning secluded bays that encase this island playground. On the return leg, admire panoramic views of Townsville Port, Castle Hill, the Ross River, and the Strand, offering you an excellent perspective of this diverse region. 45-Minute Scenic Flight – Magnetic Island & Cape Cleveland Lighthouse Soar above the Coral Sea and take in the scenery of Cleveland Bay and Magnetic Island’s east coast including shipwrecks, fringing reefs, and stunning sandy bays. Learn about local history with a scenic flight past Cape Cleveland Lighthouse. Perched high on the wind-beaten cliff face, the lighthouse built in 1879 marks the northern-most point of Cape Cleveland and the entrance to Cleveland Bay. Follow the coastline to discover the wetlands and enjoy some of the region’s most spectacular scenery before returning to Townsville, with panoramic views of North Queensland’s largest city.
