Cairns Reef Scenic Flight

When you consider that the Great Barrier Reef is the largest living thing on Earth, so large that it can even be seen from outer space, it makes total sense that it’s a sight best seen from the air. Witness one of the seven natural wonders of the world from the best seat in the house on a 45-minute scenic fixed wing sightseeing flight. Your tour begins with a transfer to Cairns Airport where you’ll board your fixed wing sightseeing flight and head out to the Great Barrier Reef. You’ll be awe-struck by the amazing contrasts of colours from the deep blue ocean to the turquoise shallow areas where the water is so clear you’ll have amazing views of the coral reefs below. You’ll see more of the Great Barrier Reef than you possibly could have from the ground. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a natural wonder, one you’ll remember forever. After exploring the Reef you’ll head back toward the mainland, with views of the tropical North Queensland coastline. Sights include Cairns, Green Island, Arlington Reef, Upolu Reef, Double Island and Palm Cove.
