World Heritage Rainforest & Barron Gorge
One of the great things about Cairns is that you don’t have to travel that far to see some great things. This short flight takes you up over the Barron Gorge National Park, part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage area. The lush, green landscape below is marked with steep gorges, rugged peaks and tumbling waterfalls.
Stoney Creek is one of the many wild waterways which criss-cross the mountainous Barron Gorge National Park. It’s at the lower section of the park and from above, is seen winding its way through the rainforest.
Fly over Wangetti Beach, one of the many isolated beaches forming the long sandy coastline of Tropical North Queensland. This beach is one of Australia’s most photographed and least utilized. Hang gliding is a popular activity, with participants launching themselves into thermal currents from the mountains above.
Head north up spectacular coast line to Port Douglas, a vibrant coastal hub dotted with beaches, palm trees, numerous resorts, day spas and golf courses. White boats float gently in the sparkling blue waters of the marina, while people relax in the sunshine on the golden sands of Four Mile Beach.
Mossman Gorge is an impressive place to swim and explore. By air, you can truly appreciate the sheer size and scale of this place of great, natural beauty. See the Mossman River wind down the mountains, littered with giant granite boulders and cascading waterfalls. Imagine what it must have been like for early pioneers to explore this rugged and remote terrain.
Great Barrier Reef
Fly offshore to catch glimpses of the Great Barrier Reef. This is the world’s largest living structure and can be seen from outer space. The Great Barrier is comprised of over 2,000 individual reefs, home to marine turtles, rays and more. When viewed from above, it’s a patchwork of reefs, isolated sand cays and tropical islands, set against the vibrant blue backdrop of the Coral Sea.
