Reef & Rainforest Duo Helicopter Tour From $699pp

Discover the best of Cairns with a 60 minute combined Rainforest & Reef Duo Helicopter Tour, showcasing two World Heritage-listed environments in one unforgettable adventure.

Your journey begins as you track towards Green Island, passing landmarks like Cape Grafton, Mission Bay, False Cape, and Mt Yarrabah. Beyond Green Island, head north across Arlington Reef, one of the largest reefs in the Marine Park, to the stunning Vlasoff Sand Cay. You can choose to land on Vlasoff Cay, get your feet wet, and capture the perfect Instagram shot amidst the reef’s beauty with the Coral Cay Great Barrier Reef Helicopter Tour.

Leaving Vlasoff, fly over Upolu Cay and head west, offering panoramic views of the northern beaches, Palm Cove, and Double Island. You’ll then soar over the Great Dividing Range to the rainforest village of Kuranda and the spectacular Barron Falls, cascading 850 feet into the Barron Gorge below. Your return journey goes past the Redlynch Valley and Crystal Cascades, descending over Lake Morris for breathtaking views of Cairns City from 2,000 feet before landing back at the airport.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I bring on my Cairns helicopter tour?

We recommend you bring sunglasses, sunscreen and a smile. Of course, feel free to bring your camera, however, there will be four HD onboard video cameras to capture your spectacular multi-viewpoint experience.

Is a Great Barrier Reef scenic flight worth it?

A scenic helicopter flight over the Great Barrier Reef is absolutely worthy of being on your bucket list. It offers the magnificence of seeing it all from above which will brig you an entirely different perspective of the vast beauty of the reef.

When is the best time to see whales in Cairns?

July and August are generally the best times to see migrating whales in Cairns. This is due to the cooler water temperatures at that time, and what better way to see a Humpback or Dwarf Minke Whale than from above on your very own Cairns helicopter tour.

What marine life could I see on a Great Barrier Reef scenic flight?

With an abundance of marine life on the Great Barrier Reef, it’s likely that you will see some, if not all of the following on your Cairns helicopter tour:
Manta rays
Whales – seasonal
