Great Barrier Reef and Rainforest Scenic Flight - 45 Minutes


  • Fly over the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics Rainforest
  • See Green Island, Arlington Reef and Vlasoff Cay from above
  • Witness the beauty of the Barron Gorge National Park

Witness two World Heritage-listed sites from above during this breathtaking helicopter flight. Be hypnotised by the immense beauty of the Great Barrier Reef before tracking inland and flying above the lush emerald jungle-like canopy of the Wet Tropics Rainforest.

What's Included?

  • 45 minute scenic helicopter flight
  • Professional pilot

Discover the only place in the world where two World Heritage-listed sites exist side-by-side during this magnificent helicopter flight. Departing Cairns, your pilot will take you over the Great Barrier Reef's sensational colour palette of green and blue and some of its most scenic sights like Green Island, Arlington Reef, Vlasoff Cay and Upolu Cay. Keep your eyes peeled for manta rays, turtles and other marine animals lingering in the reef below as you fly above.

You'll then cross back over the coast near Double Island and Palm Cove before ascending the coastal rainforest-clad mountains into the heart of the Barron Gorge National Park. Spot the Barron River and the quaint rainforest village of Kuranda immersed in the rainforest below, and from the top of the gorge you will descend over the mighty Barron Falls. Continue following the river as it flows from the gorge towards the ocean, before heading back to Cairns.
