Overview
Queensland’s tropical north is the only place in the world where two UNESCO World Heritage sites meet—the Wet Tropics Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef. This 1-hour scenic flight affords incredible aerial views of both, as you soar over Port Douglas, the Daintree Rainforest, Green Island, and the Arlington Reef.
What to Expect
Your tour begins with pickup from your Cairns hotel and a short transfer to Cairns Airport, where you’ll board a fixed-wing aircraft. From your window seat, enjoy spectacular aerial views as you take off over Cairns and head north along the coast to Port Douglas.

Fly inland over the lush landscapes of the Daintree Rainforest, then swoop low over the islands and cays of the Great Barrier Reef, looking out for turtles, sharks, and stingrays in the crystal-clear waters below. Listen as your pilot points out notable sights and landmarks, including Green Island, Double Island, and Palm Cove, and fly over the Arlington Reef, Upolu Reef, Batt Reef, and Tongue Reef.

As you land back at Cairns Airport, a driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.

1 hour flight over the reef

It is amazing to see the Greet Barrier Reef from the sky. The tour was great as we saw Green Island, Michaelas Cay, Port Douglas, the rainforest and other beautiful places.
