Australia offers some of the world's most spectacular landscapes, where better to take a scenic helicopter flight? Discover some of the most scenic helicopter tours through Adventure Passport. There are two types of scenic helicopter flights that ply the Australian skies. Those that fly over manmade attractions and those that take in the natural wonder of the land down under. Beyond the remarkable Sydney Harbour, with its spectacular CBD, Bridge and Opera House, are the glittering skylines of Melbourne and the Gold Coast. What sets Australian helicopter flights apart are the spectacular views they offer of ocean and outback, and the wild landscapes that fall in-between.
Natural beauty doesn't come much grander than Victoria's Twelve Apostles that flank the Great Ocean Road. As well as the Apostles a flight in this part of the world will also take in the Shipwreck Coast and the Port Campbell National Park. Like the many local cliffs, the Apostles are made of limestone and are slowly eroding. There'll never be a better time to go up in a chopper to check them out.
From limestone to coral, Queensland's Great Barrier Reef is the planet's largest living organism. While the Barrier Reef can be seen from space, there's no need to go quite that high to take it all in. And on the way home why not swing past a couple of beautiful islands before touching back down in the rainforest or hinterland somewhere. How's that for a flight!
South Australia's Kangaroo Island and Western Australia's Rottnest are two of the most celebrated islands in the country, but why not doing something different next time and take a helicopter day trip out to visit them?
The top of any Australian helicopter bucket list has to be a flight over Uluru and Kata Tjuta. Australia's Red Centre comes alive from above, and as your pilot plays expert tour guide – you'll hear about the significance this land bears for its indigenous people.
It's the perfect flight over one of the most stunning vistas on the planet.
