  • 30 minute scenic helicopter flight

Take a helicopter flight from Townsville for 30 minutes to see the sights of Magnetic Island on our circumnavigation flight to see all the forests, ship wrecks, bays and beaches.

As we lift off from the airport at Townsville we make our way over the city and across the famous Strand Esplanade and swimming pool.

Take photographs of Castle Hill the pink monolith mountain that dominates Townsville city’s skyline before we swing the helicopter to the right and head out across the Great Barrier Reef to Magnetic Island.

Our helicopter circumnavigation flight of Magnetic Island will be simply spectacular as we point out interesting items like the sunken wreck of the ship City of Adelaide and the sighting of possibly some of the other 19 ships that lay submerged in the water.

We fly over Horseshoe Bay, the magnificent pine forests in amongst the granite boulders and see Mt Cook, waterfalls (in the green season), Nelly Bay, Geoffrey Bay and many more of the 23 bays on the island.  

During the months of July to September keep your eyes peeled for the annual migration of the humpback whales as they find a safe place to calve amongst the coral reefs.

This Townsville and Magnetic Island helicopter flight is a perfect cruise ship passenger shore tour that allows you to see the beauty of this Far North Queensland town in the most perfect of ways
