Title : A Bird’s Eye View of the Great Barrier Reef

One of the things we’re best known for up here is, of course, the Great Barrier Reef.

Sometimes that does tend to distract from the million other attractions of the area but it is one of the natural wonders of the world and so it’s understandable. It’s also true that we’re hugely proud of our marine environment and will do whatever it takes to protect it.

Now the classic way of visiting the reef from your Cairns or Palm Cove luxury accommodation is by boat.  We can certainly arrange such trips for you and it’s usually possible to do some snorkelling and scuba diving if you wish. It’s a completely different world and a marvellous experience – and no, you don’t need to be a world-class diver to join in.

However, there’s another option and that’s to take a helicopter tour over the reef and surrounding islands.

It’s a truly incredible experience and it allows you to put some of the natural wonders into a broad sort of landscape / seascape context that you just can’t get at ground level. It’ll offer you memories you’ll never forget plus some incredible photo-opportunities.

One of the things you may be wondering about is price because helicopters can suggest, to some, the rich and famous. While it’s true that aviation is rarely cheap, you may be surprised at just how affordable such trips can be, particularly if you have some local expertise helping you to arrange them. A lot here depends upon the itinerary and durations you select but while it is likely to be for most people something of a ‘special treat’, it’s not something reserved for the super-rich either.

The Great Barrier Reef seen from the air is awe-inspiring. Why not talk to us and let us discuss some options and costs with you?
