Jump on board for our Magnetic Island and Townsville helicopter scenic flight for 30 minutes as we fly over the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef in Australia.
Departing from the Townsville airport we weigh you in, provide you with a safety briefing and then strap you in for your scenic helicopter flight across the Great Barrier Reef to Magnetic Island and the surrounds of Townsville.
As we depart the heli port we see the Great Barrier Reef and take in the scenery of Cleveland Bay and in the distance beautiful Maggie Island (Magnetic Island).
See rugged cliffs and islands with dense National Park rainforests and the stunning beaches that surround Magnetic Island.
During the months of July to September keep your eyes open for migrating Humpback Whales.
The return helicopter flight encompasses panoramic views of the city of Townsville and her busy port, Castle Hill, the Ross River and the ever popular Strand on the Esplanade.
If you are arriving to Townsville on a cruise ship tour then this is the perfect option for you to see the islands and Great Barrier Reef from above in the seat of a helicopter.
